Famous painter Diego Santana celebrates his sixtieth birthday on his Mediterranean island retreat with his second wife, ex, son Miguel, daughter, protégé and a few friends. He is nearly killed by a massive flower pot thrown down by a left-handed shadow, and asks Jessica, who arrives the next morning by helicopter with gallery keeper Sir John Landry, to investigate in secret, helped by first batch guest police inspector Henry Kyle, but Diego is soon killed on a walk with his own crossbow, the weapon son Miguel excels at, who took another guest, art collector in financial trouble Willard Kaufmann, to the mainland after a heart attack. Then arson destroys Diego's latest paintings, who were tripled in value by his death...
