Tigers in Red Weather

Liza Klaussmann

An unusual American family saga of rich and beautiful people who appear to have it all. But murder and madness can stalk even the fortunate. The novel, spanning the years from 1944 to 1969, is told from the different viewpoints of five well-drawn and unconventional main characters – their love/hate relationships are intriguing. Set in the millionaire's paradise of Martha's Vineyard, this is an extremely atmospheric read.

1959: June

Daisy would always remember that summer as the summer they found the body. It was also the summer she turned twelve and had first been kissed, near the old ice cellar, where they now kept all the rusting bicycles. But that first flutter of skin on skin had paled in comparison to the excitement of death.
