When somebody broke into the safe of respected jeweler, Bernard Dale, he obviously hadn't reckoned on any interference. His first mistake. His second mistake - killing Dale - was just downright stupid. For Dale was an old friend of John Mannering - alias the Baron - and Mannering didn't like his old friends getting shot. But although all the evidence pointed firmly at Dale's young partner, Tony Bennet, Mannering wasn't convinced.

With the French Riviera as his first stop, the Baron sets out on a race to find the real killer and prove the innocence of the young man.
