Publisher's Summary

Nick and her cousin, Helena, have grown up sharing sultry summers at Tiger House, the glorious old family estate on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. As World War II ends they are on the cusp of adulthood, the world seeming to offer itself up to them. Helena is leaving for Hollywood and a new marriage, while Nick is to be reunited with her young husband Hughes, due to return from London and the war. Everything is about to change. Neither quite finds the life she had imagined, and as the years pass, the trips to Tiger House take on a new complexity.
Then, on the brink of the 1960s, Nick’s daughter Daisy and Helena’s son Ed make a sinister discovery. It plunges the island’s bright heat into private shadow and sends a depth-charge to the heart of the family. Summer seemed to arrive at that moment, with its mysterious mixture of salt, cold flesh and fuel.
Magnificently told from five perspectives, Tigers in Red Weather is an unforgettable debut: a simmering novel of passion, betrayal and secret violence beneath a polished and fragile facade.

A great summer listen

I had high hopes for this book after hearing an interview with Liza Klaussman on Woman's Hour and reading excellent reviews in the broadsheets. I guess I was a little disappointed but would still highly recommend it. There are many comparisons you can put forward for this; Gatsby is the most obvious and although this book is set primarily in the 1940s and 1950s it definitely conjures up that same moneyed lifestyle, the languid summer atmosphere. The atmosphere and the narration are mesmerising and definitely the best part of this audiobook. There is a dark tension running through it that is compelling and certainly kept me listening. However, I cared very little for any of the characters and felt that the ending did not quite live up to the initial promise of the book. Definitely worth a listen though and a book to think about long after you've finished listening.

Disappointed

Bought this on a whim - as the synopsis boded well for a good summer read.
Really disappointed - struggled to finish it - just did not engage with the characters or the plot line. Did not work for me at all but it's good to try new books, I guess.

Like listening to a movie!

The production and narration of this book was fantastic. The accents and voices of each character were so well done abd specific, I immediately knew who was speaking before their name was even mentioned.Best audio book I've ever listened to and if course a great story.
