Alexander Wainwright is, in fact, a true creative genius. Jonathan Pryde, wealthy patron of the arts, offers him a commission to create stained glass windows at his residence at Vence in the south of France.
Alex hesitates. He’s a painter, not a glass cutter. Jonathan flatters and entices with promises of creative freedom and fame. Against his better instincts, Alex is lured into Pryde’s world and agrees to visit the home where the stained glass work is to be constructed.
His patron’s home is a luxurious, medieval castle. To Alex’s surprise, many elderly, but forgotten writers and philosophers live there, insisting they are free to leave, but never do.
Visions of the beyond have ravaged their minds and they are under Pryde’s care.
His patron’s great intelligence and aesthetic sensibility impress Alex so much that he believes he has found a kindred spirit. Yet, underneath, Alex senses Pryde is much more than he seems. As he wrestles with this question, his sense of possible betrayal deepens.
A bunker at the foot of the garden protects Pryde’s secrets. Struggling with his own creative visions, Alex is faced with the question—
How can the very best and worst of mankind thrive in one man’s breast?
