Description of Burning Tiger: When Honor Is Lost, Hope Remains by Tony Anthony
Tony Anthony's idyllic London childhood comes to an abrupt end when, at age four, he is sent to China to be raised under the heavy-handed discipline of his grandfather, a legendary Kung Fu Master with a cruel streak. Forever an outsider, the young Tony strives for supremacy in the way of his master and soon proves himself in world-class competitions. As he jets across the globe, he is groomed into the higher echelons of international society, working as an elite bodyguard for some of the world's most rich and powerful. But this life of privilege could not last.
Languishing amidst the depths of depravity in a Cyprus prison, Tony encounters an unlikely opponent, and his visits with a stranger present him with his greatest challenge. Soon, the tiger warrior is caught in a different kind of conflict with a new master. Through a dramatically moving encounter, Tony's world spins onto an unlikely trajectory of hope in a redemption story that is far from over.
Filled with tense drama, intrigue, suspense, and romance, "Burning Tiger" charts Tony Anthony's quest to bring honor to his family name, his rise to world championship heights, and his near-catastrophic, grief-driven spiral into self-destruction. A candid account of rejection and brokenness, it nonetheless reveals subtle threads of divine purpose woven through the broken heart of tragedy.
