Stodgy British archivist Henry Percival-Smythe slaves away in the dusty basement of Ealing College in 1934, the only bright spot in his life his obsession with a strange Australian mammal, the thylacine. It has been hunted to the edge of extinction, and Henry would love nothing more than to help the rare creature survive.
Then a human whirlwind spins through his door. Jack "Dingo" Chambers is also on the hunt for the so-called "Tasmanian Tiger," although his reasons are far more altruistic. Banding together, Dingo and the newly nicknamed Dash travel halfwaytd around the globe in their quest to save the thylacine from becoming a footnote in the pages of biological history.
While they search high and low, traverse the wilds, and fight the deadliest of all creatures-man-Dash and Dingo will face danger and discover another fierce passion within themselves: a desire for each other.

I really enjoyed Dash & Dingo! Lots of fun and adventure!
How should I put into words how I felt about this book. It's a very interesting book that will have you, by the end, thinking about such things as Tasmanian tigers and Tasmania. I know it had me hoping that the Tasmanian tiger still existed in some corner of Tasmania. The book in general was well written, well researched, and had a sort of Crocodile Dundee feel to it. And the budding romance between Henry (a.k.a Dash) and Dingo had me turning page after page just to find out what happened next. One of my favorite parts of the book was when Henry was confronted by Hodges (The book's main villian) on the boat to Tasmania and Henry made the comment of Hodges sounding jealous that he was with Dingo instead of him, which caused Hodges to react violently. Needless to say, I saw a love triangle forming.
