Chris Honeysett uncovers strange goings-on at the Bath Arts Academy in this intriguing new mystery

Against his better judgement, laidback painter and private investigator Chris Honeysett has accepted a role as tutor at the Bath Arts Academy and agreed to take part in an anniversary exhibition. But preparations are disrupted by a series of peculiar events: a naked, wild-haired figure is glimpsed running through the woods; strange symbols are carved onto trees and gateposts; a metal sculpture takes on a mysterious life of its own.

The incidents, which are initially assumed to be student pranks, escalate in menace and intensity, until one of Honeysett’s fellow exhibitors lies dead – and Honeysett finds himself the prime suspect in the ensuing murder investigation. It’s clear that someone is trying to frame him. But who? And why?


“Helton once again takes the traditional British cozy off the beaten track, leading readers on a fun-filled romp through the art-strewn countryside.”


“The mystery itself is nothing more than a curlicue in a jam-packed Hieronymus Bosch canvas filled with the good, the bad and the just plain wacky.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Helton’s suspenseful, well-plotted sixth Chris Honeysett mystery”
