Mystery, scandal, intrigue, adventure, heart stopping romance. This is The Spring Of The Tiger. Set in both 18th century England and Ceylon (a tropical island) there is never a dull moment. The characters are unforgettable. Clinton Shaw, the sinister and yet romantic leading man, Sarah Ashington, the brave and determined heroine, and Clytie, Sarah's loving half sister. Spring Of The Tiger will not fail to impress.
