A Brush with Death, by Malcolm Parnell
Harry Chase, a semi-professional artist and full time nobody has recently been dumped by his girlfriend. Bewildered by the end of this relationship he withdraws into his paintings.
An attempt is then made on his life. Dismissing it as a freak accident he organises a week’s painting holiday with a group of amateur painters. During the holiday several members of the group also have close encounters with death and further attempts are made on Harry.
He has no idea why anyone should wish him harm but as the holiday progresses he begins to take a closer look at his fellow artists and wonders if they are all that they seem.
Maybe one of them is a killer.
