The fifth of the Marston Baines series.
Set on the coast of southern Brittany, the unwitting lair of a powerful allegiance of international criminals, Anabelle Radan and her new husband Pierre have started a 'Studio-Boutique'. They encounter a young englishman, and their troubles begin. Eventually the adventure calls for Simon and his uncle, once again aided by Charles and Kate, to get to grips with this, the latest threat to world peace.
