At the end of the 1990s, swanky entrepreneur Reba Farwell made a killing at Christie's in New York City, selling a portion of her extraordinary art collection for a rumored 900 percent profit. But in the small town of Pierson, Illinois, Miss Farwell is someone else entirely—a quiet woman known as Becky who still lives in her family's farmhouse, working as the town's treasurer and controller. What the town doesn't see is that much of its money is "borrowed" by Becky to finance her art habit. But as Reba Farwell's deals get bigger and bigger, Becky Farwell's debt to Pierson spirals out of control. How long can she continue to pull off her double life?
