Local airline boss Aaron McCormack's wife Vanessa is fatally stabbed in their villa by a man in a traditional devil mask during the Caribbean New Year's Eve masquerade, leaving the message 'La vengeance ...' in her lipstick. The second part 'est complète' is found at the home of Aaron's estranged brother Donald, who inherit the family rum firm but ran it into debt and survives a superficial stabbing by the same devil thanks to the arrival of Aaron's gambler accountant Charles Crabtree, who stole the cash he was to invest for Vanesa, who realized Aaron's affair with PA Tabitha Brown is serious. Lush prime suspect Oscar Samuel, whom both brothers recently fired, is cleared by observant Jack, who develops a mutual romantic interest in tourist witness Anna Masani and links the cases in a diabolically misleading way.
