Somehow I had a negative memory of this, but I think I was confusing it with a different story. This one involves a nice old lady who reports to Gamadge a strange alteration in an old aquatint; soon after, she is murdered and an attempt is made to kill him. A young woman who was once a child medium turns out to be a red herring; the real guilty party comes rather close to the butler did it,. but not quite. ( )
