Philip Ashley travels to Italy to find his cousin Ambrose has died suddenly and Rachel, Ambrose’s wife, has gone.

Philip returns to England convinced Rachel was responsible for Ambrose’s death, hoping to inherit his possessions. When Rachel arrives in England Philip falls in love with her.

One small event after another causes a kind of see-saw of belief and disbelief.

Is Rachel a scheming murderess or a grossly maligned woman?
