Overview

Before you look at another Internet website offering quick romances with easy girls, hear the sad tale of Louis Durand who, like you, was a lonely man looking for love. He found it, that is true, through a mail order bride service, not unlike the Internet services available today, and it did provide him with quick and easy love plus great sex, but it also led him down the primrose path to destruction, murder and death.
Waltz into Darkness enjoys the rare distinction of having been made into two different movies. More than that, the plot is so timely in today's times that the plot could easily be made into several more movies now.
This is because the plot involves two people who met in 1880 through a mail order bride agency. They knew nothing about each other when they first met and yet were married to each other on the same day. They fall in love and have a passionate but ill fated romance filled with murder and intrigue.

Middle-aged Louis Durand, whose fiance died 15 years ago on the eve of their wedding, decides to take one more chance on love and marry a woman he knows only through correspondence. When she arrives, she's younger and more beautiful that he had expected--and far more deadly.
