The Compassionate Tiger By

“A tale of intrigue and violence…if you like a yarn of high adventure in exotic lands, tough and brawny heroes, and sex in heavy doses, this fills the bill.” Hackensack Record

An ancient, Vietnamese parable tells of a tigress who attacks her own cubs…and if the cubs don’t fight back, she kills them out of compassion. Because she knows a cub must learn to kill…or be killed.  Soldier-of-fortune Daniel King, also a former male escort, realizes the parable is the key to the cut-throat world of Vietnam in 1954. To survive, King must outwit Mossard, a rich plantation owner who has hired him as a bodyguard… and who constantly plays both sides of every conflict. But so do Mossard’s wife Charlotte and his beautiful mistress Thi-Tuyet, who both lure King into their beds. King must walk on the razor’s edge of death and betrayal in a world of non-stop greed and sudden violence…or die.
