A Tiger in Eden

Flynn Chris

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 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.
