Templar is on the terrace of a tourist hotel in Baden-Baden when he can thwart a murder attempt on Julia Harrison. She is looking for Voyson, the business partner of her late father, who took 250.000 pounds from the company and then disappeared. Voyson is indeed staying in this hotel but shortly after Julia takes him to task, he suffers a heart attack and dies in the hospital of Dr. Schreiber.
But Templar thinks that there's something fishy with the whole story and investigates.
