Renata knew not what to expect when her beautiful and enigmatic half-sister Fiammeta invited her to attend the festivities at the Pala zo of Monfalcone. The cast of characters was strange indeed: Count Enzo, the severe nobleman who presided over the estate; Cesare, the bold and reckless lover of Fiammeta; and Craig Stevens, the mysterious American to whom Renata felt herself irresistibly attracted.
