Reprint. Originally published: 2010.

Henry Cage seemed to have it all. A successful business career, considerable wealth, and a reputation for being a just and principled man.

But public virtues can conceal private failings, and as Henry faces retirement, his well-ordered life begins to unravel.

On the eve of the new millennium he is the victim of a random act of violence which soon escalates into a prolonged persecution, with tragic consequences.

Family secrets are revealed, and when his ex-wife Nessa summons Henry to Palm Beach, he realises that there is little time to redress the mistakes of the past.

The Upright Piano Player explores with a tender, yet unflinching eye the small but devastating flaws in human nature that can shape our destinies.
