Coda, Fantaisie and an Intermezzo

Grahame C.W. Howard

Wife wanted to avoid inheritance tax - financial incentive available
This ad in the local paper-placed by Edward, who has a terminal illness-catches the eye of Kelly, who wonders if this could be her way out of an abusive relationship.
A young boy runs away from home and finds a job which introduces him to a whole new world of classical music and he is determined to become a concert pianist. Years later, after his first piano recital, he realises he is just not good enough, but he has one fan and there are other ways to live out one's dream.
An evening at the opera isn't exactly Charles Bishop's idea of a great night out, so when his friend Julian invites him to a performance at the Royal Opera House he reluctantly agrees.
By the end of the evening, Charles finds himself enthralled by both the music and the star performer, the mezzo-soprano Daisy Cartwright.

Grahame Howard was born in London in 1953. His childhood was spent in Norfolk, following which he returned to London to study medicine at St Thomas' Hospital Medical School.
After junior posts in London and Cambridge he was appointed consultant oncologist in Edinburgh. This is his fifth book, previous ones being based on his childhood, his time as a student and as a junior doctor in the '70s and '80s. His experience of working for the NHS informed many of the opinions expressed in The Euthanasia Protocol.
The inspiration for these stories is his life-long love of music.
