What would you do if you walked into a room and saw two bullet-riddle bodies -- the killer still standing over them?  Thomas Chanard runs for his life!  He recognizes the murderer, Gino Longua, a prominent member of the New York syndicate, and he knows Longua will put out a contract on him --that he will be the next to die, if they find him.  Where would you be safe if you were worth $30,000 -- DEAD.  Thomas runs home to the small French village he left two years ago -- to the girl he loved, but couldn't have.
