Dillon’s War – The Weretiger of Kontum
Author: Richard A.M. Dixon
Publisher: Two Harbors Press
ISBN: 978-1-937293-30-7 (hc)
Pages: 297
Published: November 2011

Deep in the jungle a soldier encounters a tiger for what will become a life-changing experience for both tiger and man.

Fighting in Vietnam, Mike Dillon never Dreams a tiger’s bite would transform him into the wild creature that lies dormant within him. Neither does the tiger know that he will find a spiritual partner in the man he stalks as prey.

Here is the story of Mike Dillon, enigmatic anti-hero of Dillon’s War: The Weretiger of Kontum. From his birth Mike finds himself gradually drawn into the world of animals, but nothing can prepare him for the experience of his near-fatal encounter with the tiger.

Their wild adventures as a team hunting in the jungle are observed by primitive tribesmen who perceive the pair as a single entity, the mythical weretiger, an invincible beast able to shape-shift at will.

Woven from the sights and sounds of the author’s experiences during the Vietnam War, Richard A.M. Dixon’s compelling tale, Dillon’s War: The Weretiger of Vietnam explores the chilling consequences when the wild creature residing in one man surfaces.

With high school finished for the summer, Nick looks forward to visiting his aunt and uncle in New Jersey. What awaits him is a heat wave like no other – and the last two Greywings on the planet. Nick has an innate ability to train horses but will he be able to translate his amazing skill to these teenage dragons?

The steaming soup of mid-summer heats up tempers and tests resolve as Nick vies with fellow trainers, Keith and Maxie, for mastery over their new charges. The dragons, Nikita and Michael, typical teenagers themselves, have other ideas.

Nick treads a torturous path through a minefield of competing demands: the expectations of his aunt and uncle, recalcitrant horses, the Academy’s female students and the overwhelming egos of Nikita and Michael. One small mistake erupts into a conflagration that hurls everyone into a race against time and the overwhelming forces of nature.
