Free sample

Years after the town drunk woke up in a bus shelter and saw an extinct Tasmanian tiger breathing down on him, the laughs keep coming in Windy Mountain.

Australian writer John Martin has packaged the first five novels of the funny series together in one bingeworthy bundle.

1 — LIE OF THE TIGER
How could secret doggy business possibly solve the mystery of the Tasmanian Tiger?
Find out in this funny but touching story about two old men and an Irishman who are trying to save a failing Tasmanian Tiger museum. 
<I>Lie of the Tiger </I>will take you on an emotional rollercoaster but leave you feeling good.

2 — BLOKES ON A PLANE
The Mayor is missing ... someone is stealing important landmarks ... and the Tasmanian Tiger starts being elusive once again.
Two old men go from being unlikely tourists to becoming unlikely sleuths in this funny novel.
Octogenarians Oodles and Wish-Wash had been planning to go to Ireland to retrace family history.
But they are forced to reassess their priorities when they realise no one else seems to share their concerns about the strange things happening in the normally sleepy little town.

3 — WHITEY AND THE SIX DWARFS
When a garden ornament goes missing, the new once-shady owners of the Tasmanian Tiger Museum get sucked into a funny whodunnit.
The clues include a skeleton, a chess set, and a concrete marsupial with a secret pouch.
Who better than two ex-cons to catch a criminal? It would be easier though if they knew who the bad guy really was!

4 — BLOKES IN DONEGAL
The old men think they’re flying to Ireland to trace family history and to inherit a castle. The reality is very different.
It seems St Patrick was so busy chasing the snakes out of Ireland, he overlooked ridding the country of Tasmanian Tigers. Or did he?

THE PREQUEL — 30 YEARS BEFORE THE START
WHO KNEW TASMANIAN TIGERS EAT APPLES
This novel has revenge like you have probably never seen, dealt up by a Tasmanian Tiger hunter who doesn't really want to deal it.
The Tasmanian Tiger hunter tangles with a greedy mayor who believes no one can tell him what to do with an apple orchard that was handed down from his great, great, great grandfather, who was a tyrant who struck fear into the hearts of Irish convicts under his command.
This book is set in the early 1990s and takes a satirical dig at a small town and some small-minded officials. 
When claims are made Tasmanian Tigers have been spotted in the orchard, the mayor doesn't believe a word of it. Why would he? The last-known Tasmanian Tiger died in 1936, and the species was later declared extinct.The Tasmanian Tiger hunter doesn't believe the claims either, so why he does what he does is a mystery to the Mayor and his cronies — and a boon for a visiting American millionaire.

THEY'RE LISTENING TO THE TOWN DRUNK NOW IN THIS FUNNY NOVEL!

No one believed him when he claimed to have been woken up by an extinct animal in a bus shelter in the middle of the night.

His new following is a problem for The Mayor who believes no one can tell him what he can or can't do with his apple orchard, even if some wacko claims Tasmanian Tigers have been seen there.

Comedy meets mystery in this quirky novel.

Who Knew The Tasmanian Tiger Eats Apples! is the first novel in the Windy Mountain Tasmanian Tiger series but it has a story all of its own and a satisfying ending.

The book is set in the early 1990s and takes a satirical dig at a small town and some small-minded officials.

The plot takes some quirky detours and you'll meet some quirky folk.

If you enjoy a dash of mystery with your laughs, you might just love this book.

READ WHAT OTHER READERS SAY

I ENJOYED THE book for its quirky, exaggerated characters and its satirical, tongue in cheek look at life in a small town.

WHAT MORE can you ask in a cast of characters? The story itself, a quick read, is light-hearted and humorous, and a good start to a series.

DIDN'T WANT to put it down ... the characters were colorful and fun! This is a quick read and enjoyable!

THERE ARE several stories going on in this book, all with humorous moments, and well developed characters. I gave it 4 stars only because I never read 5 star reviews.

I'M OFF TO read the second Windy Mountain book, Lie of the Tiger. The Thylacine lives!

IF YOU like your humour with a touch of mystery and quirky townsfolk, then you may also enjoy this story.

SOME OF the Australian slang was a little difficult to understand at first, but added to the flavor of the book.

THIS WAS a goofy, enjoyable book, a real change of pace from most books out there.

IT WASN'T until I got over halfway through that I started to appreciate that the author's humour was much subtler than I had initially given him credit for. And the ending was perfect. This is a book that rewards perseverance.

THIS WAS a really fun, easy, breezy read. The pacing moves along at a good clip. No meandering, dull exposition.
