9780060550295: Five red herrings

[A BBC Radio 4 Full-Cast Dramatization starring Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter Wimsey, with Peter Jones and Miriam Margolyes]

The elegant, intelligent amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey is one of detective literature's most popular creations. -- When the body of Sandy Campbell is found at the foot of a cliff near the small town of Kircdubright, members of the local constabulary are convinced that the argumentative painter is the victim of a tragic accident. But when Lord Peter Wimsey turns up, the hunt begins for an ingenious killer. Faced with six men, all of whom have a motive for murder, the aristocratic amateur sleuth must deduce which are the five red herrings and which has blood on his hands.

From the Back Cover:

Lord Peter Wimsey must ferret out a murderer in a Scottish art colony in this classic tale from Dorothy L. Sayers.

In the scenic Scottish village of Kirkcudbright, no one is disliked more than the painter Sandy Campbell. When he is found dead at the foot of a cliff, his easel standing above, no one is sorry to see him gone—especially six members of the close-knit Galloway artists' colony.

The inimitable Lord Peter Wimsey is on the scene to determine the truth about Campbell's death. Piecing together the evidence, the aristocratic sleuth discovers that of the six suspected painters, five are red herrings, innocent of the crime. But just which one is the ingenious artist with a talent for murder?
