"El Tigre" is, most importantly, a great read! Well-paced and well-written, it's a book that you'll want to settle in with and won't put down until you're finished. The storyline of the title character's adventures and success is set against a vivid background of 19th century European wars and America's frontiers. I was particularly impressed by the scope of historical research, from Indian tribal differences to gold mining, included seamlessly into the narrative. As the legend of "El Tigre" grows with each page, you'll find yourself admiring this multi-faceted hero and will be pleased at the promise of a sequel. My wife enjoyed the book as much as I did, and it would be suitable for teen-age readers as well. For suspense & mystery, layered with today's global political intrigue, try the author's new thriller "The Elymais Coin"! This new novel demonstrates Manhold's amazingly versatile writing style with his same hallmark attention to detailed research...an excellent holiday gift for all current event buffs!
