The body was on the pointed rocks alongside the stream. The artist might have fallen from the cliff where he was painting, but there are too many suspicious elements -- particularly the medical evidence that proves he'd been dead nearly half a day, though eyewitnesses had seen him alive a scant hour earlier. And then there are the six prime suspects -- all of them artists, all of whom wished him dead. Five are red herrings, but one has created a masterpiece of murder that baffles everyone, including Lord Peter Wimsey.

Nobody is sorry when Sandy Campbell falls to his death, especially his six fellow artists in the little town of Kirkcudbright. However, it is soon discovered that his fall was not an accident, and all six of the artists are suspected. Are all six of them innocent, or is one of them a murderer?
