Free read Death of a Ghost ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB John Sebastian Lafcadio is one of the greatest painters of the Edwardian period and his ambition to be known as the greatest painter since Rembrandt was not to be thwarted by a matter as trifling as his own death Lafcadio was not only a brilliantly talented it appears a bit psychic Certain that his reputation would improve dramatically after his death he left aset of twelve sealed paintings with his agent along with the instruction that her widow should wait a suitable interval and then begin doling out the work to. This book is OK as far as it goes It is a thirties crime mystery based around a posh family and their connections and almost everyone is connected with the art world in some way The initial murder there are to come takes place early on during the first viewing of one of the paintings which has been left by a famous artist to be revealed at the rate of one per yearSome of the characters are so appalling that I woud have loved to have leapt into the pages of my book and killed them off myself When I say appalling I don t mean that they are badly written uite the contrary but they are just people that I wouldn t ever want anywhere near me So that is good writing is it notThe main policeman in the plot is just so straight and humourless and appears to lack the wit to outsmart a slug on the garden fence never mind a dangerous criminal Campion also lacks humour He is such a serious man who happens to be on the scene due to his long standing connection with the widow To me he seemed to be rather slow in picking up the clues and sorting out the motive and the killer but I suppose that prolongs the endingIt may seem a strange thing to say about a story which revolves around the art world but I got irritated by the amount of art talk and technicalities in this book Others may love that but it was not for meIn summary the book was OK I don t regret reading it but there are many other books out there that I should prefer to read ahead of another Campion mystery
