(From the publisher):
John Jericho. He is a painter, a good one. He's about the biggest man around, and with his striking red beard, difficult to miss.
Even in the dark. So when the bullets began to pepper the area where he was talking to the beautiful and unhappy Louise Stevens, he knew he was being warned. To go away, to stop his investigation into the death, ten years earlier, of her father, the respected headmaster of the prestigious private school named after him, Pelham Hall.
On the night Dr. Pelham was murdered by a sniper there were eight people at Pelham Hall who could handle a rifle with skill. They were all members of his family: his wife, his two daughters and their husbands, his son, his grandson, and his devoted manservant. None of the eight had an alibi for the fatal night; since then their lives had been warped by fear.
Fear of being killed and fear that a terrible secret would finally be exposed. Somewhere there had to be a clue, but before big John Jericho could find it, there was another murder. And one less famly member to suspect. The big painter knew that he must work quickly.
