The artist might have fallen from the cliff where he was painting, but there are too many suspicious elements – particularly the medical evidence that proves he’d been dead nearly half a day, though eyewitnesses had seen him alive only an hour earlier. And then there are the six prime suspects – all of them artists, all of whom wished him dead. Five are red herrings, but one has created a masterpiece of murder that baffles everyone, including Lord Peter Wimsey.

Still, it doesn’t do to murder people, no matter how offensive they may be.

In the scenic Scottish village of Kirkcudbright, no one is disliked more than Sandy Campbell. When the painter is found dead at the foot of a cliff, his easel standing above, no one is sorry to see him gone—especially six members of the close-knit Galloway artists’ colony.

The inimitable Lord Peter Wimsey is on the scene to determine the truth about Campbell’s death. Piecing together the evidence, the aristocratic sleuth discovers that of the six close-knit painters, five are red herrings, innocent of the crime. But just which one is the ingenious artist with a talent for murder?
