9780062341648: The Five Red Herrings: A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery (Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries)

Lord Peter 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 members of the close-knit Galloway artists' colony do not regret Campbell's death.

  Five of them are red herrings.
