Nothing would persuade DI John Bright to go abroad. Not even the death threats he keeps getting. But they start to threaten Jude's life too, and when her ex-husband Dan reappears on the scene, Bright changes his mind and, to Jude's surprise and joy, they're off, driving down to the South of France on their first holiday together. The violent rape and death of a voluptuous young woman from the Jura hotel where they stop en route finds Bright not just a cop but also for the first time in his life a suspect. Though confined, and wildly frustrated by his lack of French, Bright fights his way to the truth. But will he ever be able to bring the perpetrator to justice?
