"It's August 1969 in the sleepy college town of Holloman, Connecticut, and police Captain Carmine Delmonico is away on vacation. Back at home, first one, then two anonymous male corpses turn up--emaciated and emasculated. Sergeant Delia Carstairs and Lieutenant Abe Goldberg connect the victims to four other bodies, and suddenly they realize Holloman has a psychopathetic killer on the loose. Luckily Carmine decides to come back from vacation early. Carmine's team begins to circle a trio of eccentrics living on a beautiful estate; they readily admit to knowing all the victims, but their stories keep changing. They share a dark past, family ties, and painful memories. One of them is a woman who has recently become a friend of Delia's, along with another woman who is the respected head of the insane asylum. She has done groundbreaking work rehabilitating one very difficult patient who is now her most trusted assistant. The three women met while rescuing a cat from a tree, and now they find they share a love of intelligent conversation and their enjoyment of living the single life. When a gas station attendant is viciously murdered, and then Carmine barely escapes being next in the body count, it becomes apparent that Holloman has two killers at large with two completely different modus operandi. Suddenly the summer isn't so sleepy any more"--Provided by publisher.

Is it true that the picture brings misfortune to all its owners, and why? Investigator Egor Surzhikova has not come across such a complex and complicated case... an elusive maniac kills beauties and artists who painted their portraits, and bodies are "decorated" with black roses. And it turns out that all the murders are connected with a scandalous robbery of the Tretyakov Gallery, where a mysterious painting recently disappeared. But instead of being engaged in the search for the masterpiece, Surzhikov is forced to look for a girl who is depicted in this picture. It does not matter that the painting is amost two hundred years old... She is very real, and she was in mortal danger..." -- cataloger's translation of cover.
