#BookReview :: Tiger by the Tail by Venita Coelho

MISSION BRIEF: Tigers are being reported missing from wildlife reserves across India, Bangladesh and Nepal. Several hundred tigers have vanished. Something, or someone, is taking them. And if they are not stopped, this could mean the end of the species. It is time the Animal Intelligence Agency got involved.
NOTE: The Animal Intelligence Agency is a multi-species nongovernmental agency. Specially trained Animal and Human agents work undercover to save animals and save the world. Some of them have the licence to kill.
Agents have been instructed that this is an Alpha mission. Highest
degree of difficulty and danger. The leads they have to follow lie in
Kathmandu, the Sera monastery in Tibet and the Forbidden City in
China. They will face danger, destruction, and possible death. The
fate of the tiger species is in their hands.

This is such an awesome book! The blurb of the story, while eye-catching, doesn’t really do justice to the story!

Tigers are being reported missing from wildlife reserves across India, Bangladesh and Nepal. No one knows what exactly is happening and has any idea about how to stop it. So the Animal Intelligence Agency steps up and gets involved in the case. Bagha, Kela and Rana are the three agents who are assigned to this very dangerous case that takes them on a journey of a lifetime. As these mismatched yet highly competent agents takes on the path of detection, the readers are taken on a journey of a lifetime.

It is just awesome… yes, I am repeating myself – but who could have thought of Animal Intelligence Agency? So, the characters in this story does not fit into any ‘obvious’ category and as such it was so refreshing. The plot is well fleshed out while being different and intriguing. There are a lot of twists and turns and because I had thrown any expectations out of the window the moment I read about AIA, these twists still caught me by surprise. The action and adventures described in the pages are engaging.

An awesome page turner that will engage readers of any age! Pick this one up for a fun time!
