Publisher's Summary

A new addition to the Kildar military adventure series created by John Ringo. Sequel to Ghost, Kildar, Choosers of the Slain and Unto the Breach.
After saving America from Middle Eastern terrorists, even Mike Harmon and the Keldara could use a vacation. Of course, the Kildar's idea of a vacation includes taking down pirates in the Singapore Straits. But when he finds computer chips designed to run nuclear reactors in the pirate booty, Harmon has a new mission thrust upon him - discover how bottom-feeding thieves got their hands on top-secret technology.
The chips are headed for newly democratic Myanmar, a country vital to American interests in the region. Now Harmon finds himself in a desperate race to learn who stole the chips and why.
From glittering Hong Kong to the slums of Thailand to the swamps of Myanmar, Harmon and his Keldara team follow a trail of death and deceit across the glittering underbelly of Southeast Asia. And as the path winds through dark jungle and slave labor camps to the heart of newborn democracy, Harmon must devise a way to prevent the nasty overthrow of a nation's capital by totalitarian tyrants. But if there's one thing Mike and the Keldara specialize in, it's doing what it takes to give freedom a chance.

Most Helpful

great story line and believable characters, I laug

Would you listen to Tiger by the Tail again? Why?

like I said above, it is such a great story line, I cried, and laughed, and wished I had such a talent.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tiger by the Tail?

The battles, and the way in which they were described, by a very realistic orator? If I spelt that correctly.

Which character – as performed by Jeremy Arthur – was your favourite?

A very difficult question, as I became so involved in the book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes the death of certain characters, who I had wanted to live, but then that is true to life.

Any additional comments?

keep writing, you have changed the quality of my life, I suffered an industrial injury in 1975, 9 days after I married, I lost my wife, my job and my home,and then in 1999 a drunk drove his car into me, so my life was a bit of a mess, incredibly you lifted that, and brought laughter and tears back into my life, and in simple truth, Life is a gift, to be enjoyed, keep writing.

Just as good as the earlier books in the series

If you could sum up Tiger by the Tail in three words, what would they be?

Continues on from the previous 5 books in the series, so if you enjoyed those then you will like this one also.

But start at the beginning as Paladin of Shadows is a fantastic series and the books and characters do follow on, a must read for any John Ringo fans.

While not hard Science fiction when compared to his other books, this series introduces many of the themes and big ideas that he develops in other books like the Troy Rising series, Legacy of the Aldenata and in The Last Centurion.
