A 40-year-old widow, she thought she was simply substituting for a colleague as hostess on an alumni cruise. She unwittingly carries on board some kind of message, without knowing who receives it. Uneasy, she confides in a retired army colonel, who takes her to the very stern and businesslike captain. Suspecting smuggling on his ship, he asks Carolyn to find the person who switched sacks with her.Other characters have their special concerns: The colonel is trying to understand the restlessness his wife has felt since his retirement. The piano player makes a play for Carolyn and warns her that the captain has a scandal in his past. The assistant cruise director is jealous of his randy boss, while the cruise director is being harassed by his wife in Miami because he gambles and is low on funds, all leading to suspicious behavior by members of the cruise staff.Carolyn finds the photographers assistant who received the message, and then is the target of a kidnap attempt in Tobago. The captain has by this time convinced Carolyn of his integrity- they spend a heart-stopping afternoon alone together in St. Lucia. The next day in Martinique the smuggler reveals himself and Carolyn is tricked onto a fishing boat. Will she escape unharmed?
