Gertrude Dean has finally found a sunny haven on the island of Mallorca and put behind her that nasty business involving Keir West's wife. Barbara West was very rich and ten years older than her philandering husband. She was also considerate: when she died with a plastic bay over her head, she left a suicide note. The cleaning woman had accused Keir West of murder. The police could not prove the maid's allegations were true because Gertrude Dean, who had found him irresistible since childhood, gave him an alibi. Harassed by both the police, who tried to make her confess she was a liar, and by West, who was desperate for her to keep lying, Gertrude made her way to Mallorca where she found peace at last -- until Inspector Alvarez was asked by the English police to question her, and West himself suddenly appeared, pleading with her to keep his secrets.
