Tiger Girl: A Love Story of
the Indian Jungle, Philip Allan, 1934
A deceiving one, this. It's actually a genuine, full-on
supernatural tale set in the jungles of India, complete with were-tigers and
siren-like women with back-facing feet who, when encountered, tear you to
shreds! Typical 1930's Allan fare and good fun in that pulpy way.
