Summary note
"Trying to sidetrack J.A. Mills from her investigation of China's bear farms, her Communist Party minders take her to a rural mink farm to see a handful of tigers behind bars. That detour leads her to discover a conspiracy so pervasive that it threatens to take out every last tiger in the wild. In this memoir of geopolitical intrigue, the author tries to thwart a Chinese cadre's plan to make The King of the Jungle into a farm animal, to drive a billion-dollar luxury-goods industry. Her efforts take her across Asia and Europe, by every means from elephant back to presidential motorcade, and into the company of man-eaters, movie stars and world leaders. Every time victory seems at hand, powerful forces banking on the tiger's extinction intervene. Blood of the Tiger is a startling tale of human tenacity and greed, set against the backdrop of China's reawakening and ascendency toward world dominance"-- Provided by publisher.
