Tigerman
by Nick Harkaway




Overview -

A KIRKUS REVIEWS and NPR BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR
A WASHINGTON POST AND ALA NOTABLE BOOK

From the award-winning author of Angelmaker, Tigerman is a novel at once heartfelt and thrilling--about parenthood, friendship and secret identities, about heroes of both the super and the everyday kind.

Sergeant Lester Ferris is a good man in need of a rest. After a long career of being shot at, he's about to retire. The mildly larcenous, backwater island of Mancreu, a former British colony in legal limbo, belching toxic clouds of waste and facing imminent destruction by an international community afraid for their own safety, is the ideal place to serve out his time. There is an illicit Black Fleet lurking in the bay: spy stations, arms dealers, offshore hospitals, drug factories and torture centers. Lester's brief, however, is to sit tight and turn a blind eye, so he drinks tea and befriends a brilliant, Internet-addled street kid with a comic-book fixation. When Mancreu's fragile society erupts in violence, Lester must be more than just an observer: he has no choice but to rediscover the man of action he once was, and find out what kind of hero the island--and the boy--will need.
