Payback is a Bitch
Stuart Andrews was a successful, although somewhat underhanded, financial adviser who took a Caribbean cruise with his wife to bring some harmony back into their marriage. Stuart is accompanied by his brother-in-law Howard and a friend Howard met on the cruise on a self-arranged fishing excursion while the cruise ship is docked in St. Nantes. However, Howard knocks Stuart out and throws his body into the Caribbean leaving him for dead. But Stuart manages to struggle to shore and, while he tries to lie low and figure out what Howard’s motive is for wanting him dead and plan his revenge.
Using finances and a passport he has not told his wife about, Stuart buys a boat to use as a base and goes after his “killers.” Skillfully he manages to get his wife and brother-in-law extradited to St. Nantes where they will stand trial for his murder. The trial is managed by a skillful judge Michel Villar who seems to be overly interested in the case. The outcome may seem obvious but the aftermath isn’t.
