This paranormal mystery book follows Lily Mossberg, an anthropology lecturer at a rural New England university. Lily can turn herself into a tiger due to a genetic mutation, a “psi plague,” of which shape-shifting is a rare and virtually unstudied variant. Lily is facing a difficult situation where she must confront her ex-husband, the CEO of a pharmaceutical company. He is determined to profit from the new psi “diseases.” The tension peaks at his secret pharmaceutical facility, where lives are at stake, including Lily’s and her daughter’s.
“Tiger Lily” is a brave book that handles abstract concepts and ideas such as shape shifting with grace and beauty and weaves them into a story line that is tight and well-paced and grounded with skill. The pace of the book is perfect and kept me engaged without even one lapse.
