Morf is a critically acclaimed art critic who can with a secure review destroy an artist’s career or propel it immediately. He works very well with an agent named Rhodora and her nurse, Josephina. When Josephina discovers the body of a painter and observes his special works, she steals them and shows them to the two for evaluation. Morf and Rhodora are fascinated by the paintings and decide to use them at art exhibitions and then sell them for fabulous sums. Only the deceased painter has a troubled past, and the paintings contain some curses that can blame the three merchants.
