Eyes of the Tiger by Manfred Jurgensen
Book DescriptionThis is a novel of friendship, love and corruption. Set in Brisbane during the disastrous 1974 flood, two very different men, the immunologist Mark and the charismatic 'Prince of Spice' Sannes, struggle for the affection of the feisty, fiercely independent lawyer Jessica. In a highly charged, profoundly disturbing relationship, betrayal of friendship and violation of love interact and collide with the ever-increasing moral deterioration of the 'Moonlight State'. Jurgensen's novel depicts evil as a seductively demonic power of rampant decomposition, generating from the realm of personal intimacy to the corruption of civilised society. Its narrative of power and passion takes the reader on a frightening journey, culminating in the apparition of a predatory God. Residing in the eyes of the tiger are the violent beauty and terrible knowledge of an irredeemable love.
