When an appalling boating accident off the coast of Nice allegedly kills Dr. Alex Davenport, his attractive young wife Marie finds herself in the ironic position of widow of a husband she had been planning to leave for another man. But Alex's body suddenly disappears from the morgue, and his plane ticket and passport are missing. So begins a mystery of hypnotic fascination, involving elements of the bizarre and the supernatural.
