Von seinem Intimfeind Langhammer überredet, fährt Kluftinger mitten in der Nacht zum Schloss in Bad Grönenbach, um nach dem Rechten zu sehen. Dort findet er die Frau des Barons ermordet vor: In grotesker Pose drapiert wie auf einem uralten Gemälde des Schlosses. Liegt die Lösung des Falls in der Familiengeschichte?
