“There are, fortunately, very few people who can say that they have actually attended a murder.”   Margery Allingham, Death of a Ghost

John Sebastian Lafcadio’s ambition to be known as the greatest painter since Rembrandt was not to be thwarted by a matter as trifling as his own death. A set of twelve sealed paintings is the bequest he leaves to his widow – together with the instruction that she unveil one canvas each year before a carefully selected audience.  However, at the unveiling of the eighth painting a murder occurs – coincidentally at the unveiling to which Albert Campion had been invited.

Campion joins the cast of gadabouts, muses and socialites gathered for the latest ceremony – and the art world is observed cleverly along with the novel being a compelling mystery.
