She offers to use her wealth to realize his fantasies of living "habited in art" on the condition that Arnoldo hand over every detail of his life to her. She marries him, moves him to Arizona, and installs him in a simulated eighteenth-century palace that surpasses everything he's ever dreamed of. But when the veil of fantasy slips, murder will result, and neither Irene nor Arnoldo will be able to hide in the past.… (more)
