About the Book

Veteran reporter Garrett Hartmann considers journalism a calling and despises the fact that he has become part of a media industry manic on infotainment, commercialism, spin, and hype. He's also gone through a bitter divorce and lost his dearest friend and mentor.

Something is missing, but Garrett isn't quite sure what-or how to find it. In many ways, his plight is typical of modern man: living in a "mediated" world and feeling detached from the environment, other living things, loved ones-and even himself. Garrett craves something real.

After hearing about the Tasmanian tiger, the strange animal that has officially been extinct for decades, Garrett travels to Tasmania in search of not only the tiger, but the unmediated truth. But the Tasmanian wilderness and corrupt men with their own agendas stand in his way. Will Garrett find his truth, or does fate have other plans for him?
