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 he faces retirement, his well-ordered life begins to unravel.

On the eve of the new millennium, Henry is the victim of a random act of violence which escalates into a prolonged persecution, with tragic consequences. Family secrets are revealed and, when his ex-wife Nessa summons him to Palm Beach, he realises that there is less time to redress the mistakes of the past.
