Summary
Set in 17th-century England, an aristocratic wife commissions a young, cocksure draughtsman to sketch her husband's property while he is away-- in exchange for a fee, room and board, and one sexual favor for each of the twelve drawings. As the draughtsman becomes more entrenched in the devious schemings in this seemingly idyllic country home, curious details emerge in his drawings that may reveal a murder
