'A navy frigate found the derelict boat.. Only a copy of Bernard Moitessier's book La Longue Route, open to chapter eighteen where the words puisque je suis allé trop loin were underlined, but scribbled in the margin nonparce que je suis allé trop loin, a tiny bloodstain on deck, a partially eaten loaf of stale bread, a half tin of moldy camembert cheese, and two empty bottles of expensive French Beaujolais testified to the presence of a living person having been aboard. Who is the mysterious Frenchman who has lost his soul really?. As the Frenchman shares the tale of the last days of his life, readers are taken on an adventure in the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands where he encounters island inhabitants struck with island fever engaging in activities that cause them all to question their lives. When the Frenchman finds himself to be a twisted saving grace for their misdeeds, the race is on to get away before it's too late resulting in an ending that will leave readers debating for days as to what really happened.
