In this thrilling tale of greed and deception, Cornell Woolrich tells of middle-aged Louis Durand, whose fiancee has died fifteen years ago on the eve of their wedding. Now Louis decides to take one more chance at love by marrying Julia Russell, a woman he knows only by correspondence.

Louis soon comes to realize that Julia is not who she claims to be--and they both embark on a waltz into darkness.
