January, 1662. Rembrandt, bankrupt and drunk, stows away on a boat for Hull. To pay his passage, he must paint the captain's portrait. For himself, he paints the captain's beautiful wife, hoping to seduce her as he has many sitters before. But he has a rival - none other than the poet Andrew Marvell. Will it be a poem or a portrait that wins the favours of the captain's passionate - and scheming - wife? Hundreds of years later, the captain's derelict house on the banks of the River Humber is being restored. Within its walls Amy Dale, a painter, discovers the traces of Rembrandt and Marvell's artistic duel - and, crucially, the captain's wife's secret journal. As well as the story of the seduction, the journal gives a first-band account of Rembrandt at work in Hull - on two portraits that have never come to light! Amy keeps the journal secret - though she tells her lover. But that may have been a mistake. For now it seems she is being drawn into a new triangle of deceit and seduction, over which the presence of Rembrandt hangs like a ghost...
