Beginning with the present time, then moving back and forth through the complicated history of three families--the venerable Smiths of Smithtown, the Chanlers (the "Astor Orphans") of Rokeby, and the Stanford Whites of Box Hill--Lessard traces how the themes of genius, creativty, and sexual compulsion come together through the scandalous story of the murder of her great-grandfather, notorious architect Stanford White.
