A mystery trapped in time In 1921, infamous Italian poet Galeazzo D'Ascanio wrote his last and greatest play, inspired by his muse and mistress, actress Celia Sands. On the eve of opening night, Celia vanished, and the play was never performed.

When Celia arrives at D'Ascanio's magnificent, isolated Italian villa, she is drawn to the mystery of her namesake's disappearance-and to the compelling, enigmatic Alessandro.

Can I recall everyone's nam...

I really like this author's books so have been reading her books semi-backwards in publication. This is one of her earlier books, which I didn't read the blurb first before requesting it.
