Charles Todd is an English artist who is well known and respected for his renderings of sleek and athletic horses. What he now faces at his cousin Donald's house is also art - the art of a perfectly brutal murder. Donald's home has been burgled and his wife, Regina, is lying on her back dead, her face the colour of cream. Donald is shattered, shocked, and a prime suspect. And Todd suddenly finds himself involved in a dangerous manhunt as he searches, against all the odds, for an elusive killer and some murderous answers.
