It's high summer in Oxford. The university vacation has just begun.
The eight governors of the Moneybuckle Endowment (an architectural
library) are assembling at All Saints College for the annual dinner
before their meeting under chairman Mark Treasure, merchant banker.
The talk at the table is of some pricey sketches said to be by
Constable, and an offer from a dealer in the town. But the talk
turns to shock when murder's done in Walton Street with the
sketches as the obvious motive. The police are quick to make an
arrest, but Treasure is sure they've got the wrong suspect-even
though all other likely culprits are Moneybuckle governors, or
Moneybuckle's custodian himself. 'As nifty a puzzle as clever
Williams has yet devised, redolent with the reddest of herrings.'
Sunday Times 'Elegant, literate, ingenious and a joy to read.'
