Resumen:

Blood of the Tiger: A Story of Conspiracy, Greed, and the Battle to Save a Magnificent Species : Blood of the Tiger takes readers on a wild ride to save one of the world's rarest animals from a band of Chinese billionaires.

Many people think wild tigers are on the road to recovery, but they are in greater danger than ever - from a menace few experts saw coming.

There may be only three thousand wild tigers left in the entire world. More shocking is the fact that twice that many - some six thousand - have been bred on farms, not for traditional medicine but to supply a luxury-goods industry that secretly sells tiger-bone wine, tiger-skin décor, and exotic cuisine enjoyed by China's elite.

Two decades ago, international wildlife investigator J. A. Mills went undercover to expose bear farming in China and discovered the plot to turn tigers into nothing more than livestock. Thus begins the story of a personal crusade in which Mills mobilizes international forces to awaken the world to a conspiracy so pervasive that it threatens every last tiger in the wild.
