Twists and counter-twists maintain suspense at high level in this complex thriller. When Bernard discovers to his great surprise that his wife Linda has a penchant for collecting diamonds, a mysterious chain of events is set off. Linda is forced to explain that the diamonds serve as a pay-off for a blackmailer and as the couple set out to trap the blackmailer, it soon becomes apparent that far more insidious plans are in progress than at first imagined.
