Somewhere, he thinks, cherishing his last thought before sleep, somewhere, out there, the last tiger stands with her back to the rising wind and slowly shakes herself awake.

An unnamed man arrives at a remote house on the fringe of a vast wilderness and soon disappears into a world of silence and stillness. His one mission: to find the last thylacine, the fabled Tasmanian tiger. She is said to have passed into myth but a sighting has been reported . . .

Uncompromising and compelling, Julia Leigh's stunning first novel is a haunting tale of obsession that builds to an unforgettable conclusion.

'Leigh has completely mastered the craft of storytelling, and her evocation of place and time is stunning.' Guardian

'I was hooked from the first page.' Australian's Review of Books

'Julia Leigh has emerged with a writing voice of great purity and strength . . . her talent burns bright.' Frank Moorhouse
