Sir Valentine Pugin-Stuart, newly succeeded to the baronetcy, is the centre of this novel of encounter and intrigue. On holiday in Paris, he meets the people who are to play such a large and perplexing part in his life during the following months –Madge Weedy, a young English girl who commits suicide because of her love for the callous Henri Maillot; Montrouge, a world-famous sculptor, and his equally famous model Zara Gobelin.
