In the Zurich Museum Society reading room, a bedraggled man is sitting on one of the red leather armchairs, with a bloodstain on his chest and a letter opener in his heart. Six suspects are in the house, each of whom seems to have a dark point in their past. But no one owns up to the murder, they blame each other, and support from the police is not to be expected for some time to come. Will crime writer Cressida Kandel unmask the perpetrator before more murders happen?
