Summary
On the eve of the bloody Battle of the Somme, a group of English officers make a promise to each other: if they survive the war, they will meet in Paris a year after the fighting ends and celebrate their good fortune by racing motorcars from Paris to Nice. In November 1919, the officers all meet as planned, but in the mountains just north of their destination, two vehicles are nearly run off the road, and one man is badly injured. Back in England one year later, during a heavy rainstorm, a driver loses control on a twisting road and is killed in the crash. Was it an accident due to the hazardous conditions? Or premeditated murder? Is the crash connected in some way to the unfortunate events the year before? If it was foul play, was it a case of mistaken identity? Or was the dead man the intended victim after all?
