The old painting was done on glass, and found beneath the ruins of the ancient, decaying French mansion that Emily Hastings' sister, Irene, had inherited from the estate of the Marquis de Garac. The cold and distant Monsieur Philippe Gastion informed them that the painting was a forgotten masterpiece and should be given a place of honor.
Soon afterward, Irene became mysteriously ill, and other signs of imminent danger pointed directly toward Emily. There were rumors of the cruelty and unbridled sexuality of the long-deceased owners. A strange black cat haunted the house, and the crumbling mausoleum out back was never to be visited. And then the image on the glass painting began to change!

a good story
The story line was pretty lame. I would make a movie out of this book, all about the visuals. It would be deliciously mysterious and evil. Teenagers would love it.
