9780060550295: Five red herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers paints a perfect picture of murder in this classic mystery—back in print and now available in trade paperback—in which Sir Peter Wimsey must ferret out a murderer in a Scottish artists' colony.

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 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 suspected painters, five are red herrings, innocent of the crime. But just which one is the ingenious artist with a talent for murder?
