But what if – over the course of one long, hot summer – those rules supplanted the laws of society?
What if our overburdened legal system finally ground to a halt? What would replace “justice?”
Would it be – as in this satirical work of fiction: THE TRIBE OF THE TIGER?
Told in a series of intricately woven vignettes, this dark comedy tracks the days of one summer in a large American city. It tells of the rise of Clarence William Tieg, aka, the Tiger, a street-wise gang leader who acquires power by guile… and by default.
Through surreal “philosophy” and biting humor, the story entertains the reader by disturbing one of his deepest fears: the terror of uncertainty, of disorder, of chaos.
Given the choice, the novel asks, would you fall under the power of the Tiger if it meant security, survival?
A debt-ridden city mayor, an aging judge, an embattled police detective, a money-grubbing lawyer, a frightened shopkeeper, a disillusioned suburbanite, even a prehistoric cave-dweller, must all make that crucial decision.
TRIBE OF THE TIGER explores a surreal, summer-long odyssey: twisted, contorted, ironic. And now, closer to the truth than ever before. — Joe Dacy II
