Publication: The Viking Press, 1983, New York
First U. S. edition. Long inked inscription on the front free fly leaf by the author and signed Julian. Review copy with the slip laid-in. Very fine, unread copy in dust jacket. Eleven shocking stories that make it clear that while the tigers of the title are metaphoric as they stand for mindless violence that can erupt even in the calmest suburbia --- the terror they induce is no less real than that of the jungle. All of the stories have twists in the tail, especially when marriages turn from love to loathing and infidelity. How to get rid of an unwanted wife, a grave is found in a flower garden, a man's infatuation with a beautiful girl leads him into a deadly double-cross are some of the themes of the stories in this book. Chilling stories from the 1982 Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America.
