A Tiger in Eden
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A heady ride of sex, drugs and bar-room brawls, A Tiger in Eden is a raucous debut novel in the anti-tradition of Trainspotting and The Beach.
Beautiful beaches, sexy young backpackers, cheap drinks: southern Thailand in the mid- 1990s is the perfect place for a holiday. It’s also the perfect place for Billy—Loyalist hard man, NO SURRENDER chest tattoo, on the run from the Belfast police—to lie low.
He’s turning away from a life of crime, but isn’t sure where to go. A series of fights and one-night stands helps put his troubles out of mind for a while. But when Billy ends up in a Buddhist retreat he learns that no matter how far you travel, your past will always catch up with you.
'A brilliant mix of hilarious and confronting that keeps refusing to be like any other book you've ever read. Dropping a Belfast hard man in paradise is an act of storytelling genius, and every word of the writing backs it to the hilt.' Nick Earls
