Campion is invited by Belle, respected widow of late painter John Lafcadio,to attend an unusual ceremony. It is an annual event at which one painting at a time, left unseen at the time of the artist's death, is unveiled. Ill-mannered painter Tommy Dacre upsets the event, insulting dotty old Donna Beatrice, as former Lafcadio model and revealing he has brought a new fiancee home, to the chagrin of his old girl-friend,Lafcadio's grand-daughter Linda. The lights go out and when they are turned on again Dacre is dead, Max Fustian, a supercilious art dealer, admits to the killing but no arrests are made for lack of proof.After Dacre's art works gradually disappear, there is a second murder, of alcoholic picture restorer Claire Potter, in her studio in Belle's garden.
