Tiger, Tiger Book Description:

Malaya in the late 1960s was at last casting off the yoke of British colonial rule. But Harry "Tiger" Sullivan, a retired military officer who had made is career in Malaya for almost two decades, had nowhere else to go. Well respected for his distinguished military service, and even more so for his legendary skill in tracking and killing man-eating tigers, Sullivan's life was a comfortable and well ordered one--until the arrival of Bob Beresford, a brash and very handsome Australian. Melissa Tremayne, a lovely eighteen-year-old British expatriate bored with the slow pace of life in Malaya, had always been like the daughter Sullivan never had, but one look at Bob Beresford makes Melissa determined to win his not-so-fatherly affection. The rivalry between the two men intensifies with the sudden appearance of a man-eating tiger, emerging from the jungle at unpredictable intervals to attack and terrorize Malayan villagers, Bob wants the glory of killing the beast, while Melissa is pursuing a different kind of trophy--Bob himself. Sullivan finds himself drawn into a trial of manhood that he is unwilling to undertake. The tension builds steadily toward a thrilling climax deep in the Malayan jungle. With rare skill, Caveney combines his themes--the dilemma of aging, the blind pursuit of romance, a tiger's desperate struggle for survival--into a thrilling and compelling tale; the fascinating characters spring to life against the exotic background of Maya. In Tiger, Tiger, Caveney spins a brilliant and touching story that will not soon be forgotten.
