Overview

A deceptive environmentalist in Queensland cost American environmental journalist Judith Theresa Bryan the job she loved. But in Tasmania, she gets a new chance, albeit one tainted by the fact that the same man will be involved in the story. Judith's plum assignment is to document the search for the elusive Tasmanian tiger, with unrestricted access to the expedition's leader, expert Bevan Keene. Problem: Keene dislikes and distrusts all journalists.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The elusive, possibly extinct Tasmanian tiger brings together an American environmental journalist and an Australian grazier in Victoria Gordon's predictable but enjoyable down-under romance (after The Horse Tamer's Challenge, written as G.K. Aalborg). Judith Bryan gets a plum assignment that requires working with Derek Innes, a backstabbing eco-journo rival who's bested her before, and Bevan Keene, a rugged Aussie stockman who's supposedly seen one of the rare Tassie tigers. Bevan leads the publisher-backed expedition to find the creature with Judith, Derek, a photographer, some conservationists and Bevan's rural friends Roberta Jardine and Ted Norton. Bevan is an appropriately macho romantic hero, a more aggressive Crocodile Dundee sans crocodile (“...don't you think I've got better things to do than bugger about in the scrub with a bunch of conservationist wankers...?”) and Judith is a too wide-eyed reporter (“What's a wanker?”). The group's problems in getting along (greenies vs. anti-greenies; steak vs. lentils and tofu) as they head into the Tarkine Wilderness, coupled with the prime duo's jittery chemistry, makes this a keeper, although the resolution might register as a giddy copout.
