A man-eating tiger is hunting villagers in the snowy forests of Far Eastern Russia.

A small team of men and their dogs must hunt the tiger in turn. As evidence mounts, it becomes clear that the tiger’s attacks aren’t random: it is seeking revenge. Injured, starving and extremely dangerous, the tiger must be found before it strikes again.

As he tracks the tiger’s deadly progress, John Vaillant draws an unforgettable portrait of a distant and brutal region, over 5,000 miles from Moscow. In the harsh depths of winter in Primorye, a gripping tale of man and nature unfolds.

‘Exciting, memorable – and perfectly, impeccably right . . . a tale of astonishing power and vigour’ Simon Winchester, author of The Surgeon of Crowthorne

‘Extraordinary . . . a brilliantly told tale of man and nature’ New York Review of Books
