**The thrilling new novel by the prize-winning author of Larchfield**

'Passionate, remarkable and uplifting novel' Guardian 'Grabbed me by the imagination and carried me into the wild' Laline Paull

Set across two continents, Tiger is a sweeping story of survival and redeeming love that plunges the reader into one of the world's last wildernesses with blistering authenticity.

Frieda is a primatologist, sensitive and solitary, until a violent attack shatters her ordered world. In her new role as a zookeeper, she confronts a very different ward: an injured wild tiger.

Deep in the Siberian taiga, Tomas, a Russian conservationist, fears that the natural order has toppled. The king tiger has been killed by poachers and a spectacular tigress now patrols his vast territory as her own.

In a winter of treacherous competition, the path of the tigress and her cub crosses with an Udeghe huntress and her daughter. Vengeance must follow, and the fates of both tigers and people are transformed.

Learning of her tiger's past offers Frieda the chance of freedom. Faced with the savage forces of nature, she must trust to her instinct and, like the tiger, find a way to live in the world.

Fierce, elegant and compelling as the tiger itself, this is less a novel than the very force of nature caught in fiction. Grabbed me by the imagination and carried me into the wilds of animal and human nature., Laline Paull, author of The Bees

Visceral . . . exotic . . . An impassioned celebration of second chances -- Stephanie Cross, Daily Mail

Unsettling, immersive . . . A startling, gore-splattered, nerve-racking exploration of how human and animal territories - both physical and psychic - collide . . . Combining the propulsiveness of a thriller with the raw yet meditative tone of a memoir, Clark writes with a poet's ear and a naturalist's eye, and has a deep grasp of the profound contract between indigenous peoples and the beasts they revere. She never loses sight of the endangered creature that forms the beating heart of a passionate, remarkable and uplifting novel. -- Liz Jensen, Guardian

Electrifying - one to watch -- Nick Barley, Bookseller

Lyrical and richly imagined, immersing the reader in the Siberian wilderness. Tackling themes of grief, motherhood and empowerment, it questions the price we pay for freedom and for love. -- Hannah Beckerman, Guardian

A gorgeously written and unique novel that plunges the reader right into a vividly described natural world -- Joanne Finney, Good Housekeeping

A captivating walk on the wild side -- Lisa Howells, Heat

Polly Clark's new novel, which is largely set in the vast Siberian taiga, or frozen forest, has some utterly convincing depictions of life there - the privations, the isolation, the magnificent Siberian tigers, the astounding cold. And the reason they convince is that, in late 2017, the poet and author, realising that only first-hand experience would suffice, went out there and saw it all for herself . . . Striking -- Russell Leadbetter, Herald

The pages of in-cage interaction and silent tracking through the snowy taiga really should carry a reminder to breathe. At curtain call, though, the most thunderous ovation would go to the tigers, serene and relentless at nature's extremes, superbly rendered by the author, who to be sure of her material learnt how to track them in the depths of a Siberian winter . . . Don't be surprised if you also find yourself hooked., Strong Words

Readers with a passion for wildlife conservation will lap up this lovely novel, which moves easily between a zoo in Devon and the frozen wastes of Siberia . . . Clark has based her novel on personal experience and is as adept at looking at the world through the eyes of a tiger as she is at capturing the animal's incomparable physical grace. -- Max Davidson, Mail on Sunday
