The award-winning Tigers in Red Weather is a book that simmers with tension, threat and an intoxicating cocktail of money, sex, heat, boredom and beauty. Utterly intriguing, it's the perfect summer read.

'Immensely gripping' Sunday Times

Liza Klaussmann's Tigers in Red Weather tells the story of Nick and her cousin Helena who have grown up together, sharing long hot summers at Tiger House. With husbands and children of their own, they keep returning. But against a background of parties, cocktails, moonlight and jazz, how long can perfection last?

There is always the summer that changes everything . . .
