Thanks to Goodreads for your giveaway program; in Canada, Ryan's work is not highly profiled.

This is my first exposure to Frank P. Ryan's protagonist, Detective Inspector Sandy Woodings. Tiger Tiger was first published in 1988, and there are now several Sandy Woodings mysteries in the series.

I have some mixed feelings about this book. If I'm honest, it was a bit difficult to read at times. At times, the writing came across as almost surreal... dreamlike, in a way.

The whole murder mystery itself was interesting, but by the end, I was left with more questions than answers. The case wasn't wrapped up in a very satisfactory way - at least in my opinion.

The tiger aspect, I felt,
I was close to figuring out whodunit, but not close enough. Overall it was a good read and I certainly wouldn't be against reading more of the Sandy Wooding series.
