From the back cover:
"No picture ever came more beautiful than Raphael's Pandora. Discovered by a dashing young lieutenant, raymond Belvedon, in a Normandy Chateau in 1944, she had cast her spell over his family - all artists and dealers - for 50 years. Hanging in a turret of their lovely Cotswold house, Pandora witnessed Raymond's tempestuous wife Galena both entertaining a string of lovers, and giving birth to her 4 children...Then an exquisite stranger rolls up, claiming to be a long-lost daughter of the family, setting the 3 Belvedon brothers at each others throats. Accompanying her is her fatally glamorous boyfriend, whose very different agenda includes an unhealthy interest in the Raphael."
