Doctor Richard Walker and his wife Sondra travel to Paris for a medical convention. But Sondra disappears shortly after they arrive at the hotel, and when the local authorities prove unhelpful, Richard is forced to search for her himself. After he tracks down Michelle, the girl who has brought the luggage that was accidentally exchanged for Sondra’s luggage, Michelle joins him in the search. Richard discovers that the other suitcase contains a nuclear device, and now he has it. After searching high and low through a crepuscular, hostile Paris, the two protagonists discover that the secret services are involved in Sondra’s disappearance. They finally manage to arrange an “exchange,” but something goes wrong and people start shooting. The story reaches its dramatic conclusion when Richard’s wife is freed, but Michelle is gravely wounded.
