Two old men will need to do turn to some secret doggy business in order to "prove" the existence of the Tasmanian Tiger. They want to help a reluctant Irishman who has been set an impossible task.
Paddy – if that is indeed his real name – has taken the reins of the Windy Mountain Tasmanian Tiger Museum, only to discover the previous manager left the building in a coffin.
Then he finds out that the devious owners don't actually want him to succeed anyway.
The old men's dogged determination isn't good news for a third octogenarian who has the only legal dog in town, but stuff him.
Oodles and Wish-Wash have good reason not to like The Mayor anyway and if he won't help, they are prepared to break the law.
This is a funny, sometimes touching story with a quirky character around almost every corner.
Lie of the Tiger is book 1 of the Windy Mountain series. Each book has its own story.
But if you enjoy this one, Blokes on a Plane (book 2), Whitey and the Six Dwarfs (book 3), Blokes in Donegal (book 4), and Blokes in the House (book 5, inspired by the events of 2020), await with many of the same endearing characters.
