The corpse of Raoul Mons, a catholic writer, has just been found on the beach and Lavardin is asked to help the local police. He will be somewhat surprised when he meets Raoul Mons's widow who happens to be Bernadette Lafont, the woman he was profoundly in love with some twenty years before.
But Lavardin doesn't have much time to feel pity for himself as the investigation looks rather difficult. Everybody lie or seem to be the perfect guilty party. The only problem for Lavardin is that he can't figure out the motive for the crime.
