Young cello student Ariane Chavasse eavesdrops on a conversation between her father, Claude Chavasse, a widowed private detective who specialises in tracking unfaithful husbands and wives, and his client, Monsieur X.

After Claude gives his client proof of his wife's daily trysts with American business magnate Frank Flanagan in Room 14 at the Paris Ritz, Monsieur X announces he will shoot Flanagan later that evening. Claude is nonchalant, regretting only the business he will lose, since Flanagan is a well-known international playboy with a long history of casual affairs. When Ariane cannot get the Ritz to put her through to Flanagan on the phone, and the police decline to intervene until after a crime has been committed, she decides to warn him herself.
