He’s the product of a wealthy family, but opts for a life of secrecy and a bohemian lifestyle. He’s the father of twin daughters who’s quite a lady’s man and scholar. He’s frequently shadowed by fellow teacher Harry Schroeder who lives vicariously through his love conquests. After years of philandering, Frank falls in love with vivacious Janelle Richard a gifted artist and teacher. She’s unhappily married to Adam Stone, a powerful New Orleans Attorney. Frank makes an error in judgment when he sleeps with Marilyn Fontenot. Her boyfriend is crazy, jealous and capable of aggressive acts. Janelle is devastated when she discovers the betrayal. Also, her husband becomes aware of the affair and offers her an ultimatum. Thereafter, strange and horrible things began occurring in Frank’s life. Frank decides, because of his problems, that his daughters should receive his fortune in the event of his demise. He removes a set of George Washington saddle pistols from his safety deposit box to have appraised. Afterwards, more troubles arose and he disappeared from the face of the earth. Drake Landry, a lifelong friend, hires private detective Ralph “Semi” Simeon to find him. He’s a colorful character who is originally from Mamou, Louisiana.
