The painter John Lafcadio was brilliantly talented and, it appears, a bit psychic: Certain that his reputation would improve dramatically after his death, he left several paintings with his agent, along with the instruction that the widowed Mme.

Albert Campion, an old friend of the widow's, is among the guests at Lafcadio's eighth such posthumous vernissage. The event is a success for all but one of the attendees--a young artist who is brutally murdered while others are sipping champagne, later the wife of another painter is poisoned

"A tall thin man with overly large spectacles, he is deceptively unobtrusive when tracking down a killer and uncannily capable of predicting the deadly twists of a criminal's mind. He is unquestionably a gentleman, but even Lugg, his dauntless valet, and his friends at Scotland Yard don't know all the secrets in Campion's past-or the confidential cases he has covertly solved while in His Majesty's service. No one in the Faraday family particularly mourned the hanger-on called Uncle Andrew, but they all felt his murder was in such horrid taste. And when a mysterious symbol appeared on a mansion window and a preposterously large footprint popped up in the gardens, it became clear someone was trying to make monkeys of them all. Nothing is more unwelcome tot he proper Cambridge Faradays than a hint of scandal. But Campion shrewdly suspects that the killer plans to do more than just embarrass the Faradays to death. The idea is to really kill them ... one by one."--BOOK COVER

"After centuries as a Balkan backwater, the sleepy town of Averna has{u2013}-overnight{u2013}-become a stunningly valuable port, thanks to an earthquake that rejiggered the regional topography. But to whose coffers will that value accrue? Albert Campion, that interesting young man, has a hunch that the answer is to be found in a tiny Suffolk village, where a peculiar-{u2013}and dead-broke{u2013}-family may be able to lay claim to the Averna fortune, provided they can produce the requisite proof of lineage. The proof? Nothing terribly difficult. Just your average ancient riddle, stolen drum, long-lost bell, priceless crown, and, oh yes, a necklace of disappearing rubies"--Publisher description
