Beautiful beaches, sexy young backpackers, cheap drinks: southern Thailand in the mid-1990s is the perfect place for a holiday.
It's also the perfect place for Billy - Loyalist hard man, NO SURRENDER chest tattoo, on the run from the Belfast police - to lie low. He's turning away from a life of crime, but isn't sure where to go.
A series of fights and one-night stands helps put his troubles out of mind for a while. But when Billy ends up in a Buddhist retreat he learns that no matter how far you travel, your past will always catch up with you.
A heady ride of sex, drugs and bar-room brawls, A Tiger in Eden
There is no denying Flynn’s ability to write well and enter the psyche of such a character. But overall there was little here to make me care about this narrator, no matter how strong his convictions.
