Greta van der Rolabout this book: Black Tiger is a book about... well, yes, tigers. The number of tigers in the wild is diminishing at an alarming rate, mainly due to poaching and habitat destruction. I wrote this book to try to do my little bit to help – all profits go to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation to help support tiger conservation.
It's not a sermon, though. The novel is a fast-paced action/adventure/romance between an Indian raja and an Australian doctor. The action moves from India to Hong Kong and to Melbourne in Australia, as the raja battles tiger poaching and the Australian doctor comes face to face with a past she didn't know she had.
The black tiger of the title is a were-tiger, a beast of legend that protects the forest and its inhabitants. Needless to say, it plays a vital role in proceedings. And yes, there is a legend of a were-tiger in India. It is unaffected by the full moon and is not susceptible to silver bullets.
So come along on a journey to exotic lands and learn a little about different cultures, where you'll encounter prejudice and evil in a multitude of forms. I'm sure you'll enjoy the ride – and you'll be doing your little bit to ensure tigers are not extinct in the wild within the decade.
