Environmentalist Felix persuades his young granddaughter Bee to accompany him on holiday to Malaysia, where they journey to Pulau Tua, a vast and sacred island some distance off the Malaysian coast. There they witness the kidnapping of 10 year-old Tuan, sole survivor of an indigenous tribe wiped out by disease. With a unique genetic profile and astonishing appearance, Tuan is a ticket to definitive recognition for his abductor.
The Last Tiger follows Tuan and Bee as they grow up together in England under the harsh spotlight of celebrity. But while the world watches Tuan achieve acclaim and success, privately he is beginning to falter, eventually crumpling beneath a betrayal unimaginably cruel. Meanwhile, best friend Bee has her own terrible secret. Life for them both is steadily spiralling out of control.
This is a compelling story of love and friendship in all its guises, of difference and acceptance, of betrayal and forgiveness. But how will it end? For love of every kind is rarely destined to be straightforward.

original story and a page turner
I saw this book on Amazon, with great reviews. I had to buy it here, and was surprised to see there was not a single review! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great pace, surprising twists and a real sense of place. Looking forward to the next offering from this author. Alex.
