Vadassy, the Hungarian teacher on his Riviera holiday at St. Gatien in the summer of 1937, has had to comply with the French authorities' request that he find out which of his fellow-guests at the Hotel de la Reserve owns a camera which has been inadvertently substituted for his own. In his attempts to identify the owner Vadassy has managed to lose the duplicate camera entrusted to him by the police, has been knocked out and searched, and has been induced by the police to fake a robbery of his own room. All he has gained in the process is the return of his own camera, which he dare not report to the police since he had never admitted his loss of the duplicate. In the meantime his suspicions of the other guests have not been lessened by their odd behaviour.
