Merrilee is a most beleaguered movie star crossing the Atlantic on the same liner as the narrator. Seems somebody is trying to drive her crazy and their methods include murder. She has ESP and has always suspected she might be a trifle tetched. The narrator, and a good many of the men on board, would do anything to save that beautiful body, but with Brean's active plotting they also save her mind. And that's what this is -- undemanding commercial escape reading for people who need to.
