Summary (From the publisher):

At 2:32 a.m., a Jaguar roars along a lonely road high in the California mountains. Behind the wheel sits the beautiful wife of Professor Grant Parkington. In spite of the night's chill, she wears only a skimpy nightgown. She has left Grant behind. She's after a different kind of man - someone as wild, daring and passionate as herself.

The man she wants is waiting for her near the road. Mrs Parkington stops for him. 'Where to?' she says. He suggests the Bend, where the Silver River widens and there's a soft, sandy beach. With the stars overhead and moonlight on the water, it's an ideal place for love.

But no love will take place there tonight. In the morning a naked body will be found - a body missing more than its clothes...
