Tigers in Red Weather
The epitome of East Coast glamour, Tiger House is where the beautiful and the damned have always come to play in summer, scene of martinis and moonlit conspiracies, and newly inherited by the sleek, beguiling Nick. The Second World War is just ending, Nick's cousin Helena has left her in search of married bliss in Hollywood, and Nick's husband is coming home. Everything is about to change. Their children will surprise them. A decade later, on the cusp of adolescence, Nick's daughter and Helena's son make a sinister discovery that plunges the island's bright heat into private shadow. Summer seemed to arrive at that moment, with its mysterious mixture of salt, cold flesh and fuel. Magnificently told by each of the five characters in turn, "Tigers in Red Weather" is a simmering novel of passion, betrayal and secret violence beneath a polished and fragile facade.
"With palpable tension and spot-on sensual detail, Liza Klaussmann shows us a family in the exacting wake of the Second World War. Marvelously plotted and deliciously sophisticated, this is a book I'll be raving about for a good long while!"--Paula McLain, author of "The Paris Wife"
Liza Klaussmann was born in New York but lives in London. Already sold in more than a dozen languages, Tigers in Red Weather is her first novel.
