About the Book

Marc Orlov is a down-to-earth wildlife biologist, working hand-in-hand with Russian biologists on Siberian Tiger research in the Russian Far East. International conflicts break out, and Marc and his crew are perceived as spies. What follows is a story of his escape from Russia, weaving accounts of deep friendships, deep loves, and harrowing adventures into an entirely believable yarn set in a land of intrigue and shadows. The twists and turns of this saga and the beautiful, wild country through which Marc travels will keep you turning the pages.

About the Author

Jack Whitman was born and raised in the Salmon River Mountains of central Idaho. In his mid-20s he migrated north to Alaska, where he worked for nearly three decades as a wildlife biologist and bush pilot, specializing in large predator research and management. He lived and worked in the Copper River Basin of southcentral Alaska, the vast western Interior, and amongst the mist-shrouded islands of Southeast. In 1993 and 1994, he took a sabbatical from his duties in Alaska and worked on Siberian Tigers and Amur Leopards in the Russian Far East. In 2008, he and his wife retired from Alaska, and completed their migration back to the mountains of Idaho, where he was employed as a wolf biologist. He has authored four books and many technical manuscripts on a variety of wildlife subjects, as well as popular articles in various outlets. He has been a passionate hunter, trapper, fisher, and outdoorsman his entire life.
