Lie of the Tiger

Windy Mountain Tasmanian Tiger

Book 1
John Martin
5

FIRST IN A FUNNY SERIES

The former mayor thinks he owns the only dog in town because of a law he pushed through back in the day — but he hasn't counted on the arrival of a mysterious Irishman in Windy Mountain!

Paddy—if indeed that is his real name—is replacing the manager of the Tasmanian Tiger Museum, who left the building unexpectedly in a coffin.

The newcomer is befriended by two old men who are no longer on speaking terms with the former mayor because they think he tried to swindle them out of money.

They have no qualms breaking the no-dogs-for-commoners law on the Irishman's behalf in order to save the museum.

The old men also introduce Paddy to some of the other strange things going on in the town, such as the bushrangers’ whiskers fraud. He has a big red beard, so how could they not?

This is a funny, sometimes touching story with a quirky character around almost every corner.

Some of the language is salty, with a liberal use of the Australian vernacular.

Lie of the Tiger is book 1 of the Windy Mountain series.

If you enjoy it, Blokes on a Plane (book 2), Whitey and the Six Dwarfs (book 3), Blokes in Donegal (book 4), and Blokes in the House (book 5, inspired by the events of 2020) await with many of the same endearing characters.
