The Piano Tuner

The Piano Tuner
Title: The Piano Tuner
Author:
Annotation:In October 1886, Edgar Drake receives a strange request from the British War Office: he must leave his wife and his quiet life in London to travel to the jungles of Burma, where a rare Erard grand piano is in need of repair. The piano belongs to an army surgeon-major whose unorthodox peacemaking methods poetry, medicine, and now music have brought a tentative quiet to the southern Shan States but have elicited questions from his superiors.

On his journey through Europe, the Red Sea, India, and into Burma, Edgar meets soldiers, mystics, bandits, and talespinners, as well as an enchanting woman as elusive as the surgeon-major. And at the doctor s fort on a remote Burmese river, Edgar encounters a world more mysterious and dangerous than he ever could have imagined.
