Summary
"Award-winning war correspondent Guy Foster, distraught after the loss of his first wife, joins a cruise to Cape Town, where he meets beautiful and mysterious Melissa. A sophisticated blonde, PR girl, Melissa is travelling with an exuberant group of media friends. Guy falls desperately in love with the exotic Melissa and she suggests they marry. But while they celebrate, dark events begin to take place. An elderly widower is accidentally lost overboard. The bodies of a middle-aged couple are discovered in Cape Town. Then one of Melissa's friends is brutally killed. The finger of suspicion falls on Guy and when Melissa herself is killed, he is found bending over her bloodied corpse."
