But the next morning Flagg is found dead at the base of a cliff, a peasant girl has been beaten to death and Cass Kinsolving, a drunken American painter, is gone.Though the case has been written off as a murder followed by a suicide, Peter doesnt believe it. His search takes him through the Mediterranean and back to America.This is not a book for the squeamish.
