A man. A tiger. A tornado.
Jared Montaine owns a big cat rescue in Florida and faces financial pressures, getting over his ex-wife, and the challenge of suburbia creeping ever closer to his enclave for the animals. But when a tornado wrecks part of the refuge, Jared’s worst fear comes to life: his Siberian tiger, Sultan, escapes.
It’s a big cat handler’s nightmare: a tiger on the loose, confused, lost — and hungry.
Jared races against the police, the media, and the hysterical public, all of whom are clamoring for the tiger’s hide. He must re-capture Sultan before the cat is killed — by traffic, by SWAT, or by a civilian who just wants to shoot a tiger. With fellow wildlife handlers at his side, Jared fights desperately to find and capture Sultan before the tiger injures or kills a human. Because that would lead to his worst nightmare — having to kill the tiger he hand-raised from a cub. Jared’s commitment is tested — to his animals, his refuge, and his belief that saving the life of even one tiger is worth losing everything.
