Jacques Cournot, a freelance skipper in Saint Domingo, is hired by Mr Hendrix to purchase a sailboat: the Dragoon. Jacques negotiates the sale with Mrs Osborne, the owner of the boat. Barely a couple of days later Cournot finds himself questioned by the police as the Dragoon has disappeared and so has Mr Hendrix.
