Book 1
Dick, 34, is living on the French Riviera with his wife Nicole and his kids Topsy and Lanier. He meets Rosemary Hoyt on the beach and he draws her into his circle. He invites her to a big party at his house where he flirts with her, but tries to push off her advances. After the party he goes with Nicole, some of his friends, and Rosemary, to Paris. After hearing a story about her being with another man, he realizes that he does love her and goes to wait for her at the film studio. Somehow he misses her, so he goes and calls her, but they don’t hook up.

Book 3
Dick leaves the clinic when his drinking gets out of hand. Then he travels with Nicole before returning to their original home. He has a last meeting with Rosemary, but nothing comes of it. When Tommy and Nicole tell Dick that they are in love, Dick decides to leave peacefully. At the end of the novel, he has moved back to the US and has been struggling to live on.
Book 2
Dick is a younger man. After obtaining a degree at John Hopkins, he goes to Switzerland to finish up. In 1919 he goes to Dr. Dohmler’s clinic to see his friend Franz Gregarovius and a girl (Nicole) he met about a year before. Dick learns that Nicole was raped by her father, and that Dick’s association with her has really helped her. He visits her and they end up falling in love and getting married. The book is then shifted back to present day. He and Nicole are having problems, but things are calm. When they go to the Swiss Alps for Christmas vacation, he meets Franz and they decide to buy the clinic where Dick met Nicole. After they have been there awhile Nicole shows him a letter from a patient accusing him of seducing her daughter. He denies it, saying the woman is crazy. Later, Nicole flies into a violent madness and grabs the wheel while Dick is driving and tries to kill him and the kids. In Rome, horrible things happen
