Painting can be a dangerous pastime.
When a famous artist is found dead, and a painting done in his style used to stage the death as accidental, Lord Peter Wimsey must solve a murder with exactly six suspects - six local artists talented enough to have painted the fake, and with motive to kill the painter. Five of them are Red Herrings, but one is a murderer.

Dorothy L Sayers was born in Oxford in 1893, and was both a classical scholar and a graduate in modern languages. As well as her popular Lord Peter Wimsey series, she wrote several religious plays, but considered her translations of Dante's Divina Commedia to be her best work. She died in 1957. www.sayers.org.uk
