After all, Benny only heard of Picasso last year and now he's hot on the tail of some missing paintings by Wallace Lamb,who has all the eccentricities of the Group of Seven rolled into one. As B enny finds himself mixing with the people who buy, trade and sometimes steal pictures in the bosom of Grantham's elite, his trail runs across Mary MacCulloch, who believes she has charm enough to get the truth from Benny about why she found him in her husband's office; Pambos Kiriakis, whose missinglist of paintings starts the paint smearing down this bright, blood-red ca nvas; Jonah Abraham, the multi-millionaire distiller, and Anna, his daughter with the salamandrine eyes.
