Author(s): Justin D'Ath
Sam and his family are in New Delhi watching big brother Nathan make his international cricketing debut (he hits a six, of course) when a young pickpocket steals Sam's backpack. Sam gives chase and runs foul of the boss of a pickpocket gang, who's also involved in the illegal trade of exotic pets, including tiger cubs taken from the wild. When a pair of cubs is to be smuggled through Pakistan to Iran, Sam and the young pickpocket, now his ally, set out in the cause of wildlife conservation to rescue them. They pull it off, but find themselves miles from Delhi, with no money...and two tigers! Tiger Trouble is the most fearsome Extreme Adventure yet! Packed with the fast-paced action and animal adventures for which this series is known and loved, it is a fitting farewell to our hero Sam Fox - the final book in a popular and enduring series.
