Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 006104363X, Mass Market Paperback)The body was on the pointed rocks alongside the stream. 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 a scant 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.

Lord Wimsey could imagine the artist stepping back, the stagger, the fall down to where the pointed rocks grinned like teeth. But was it an accident, or murder? Six people did not regret Campbell's death - five were red herrings.
