"[The Hunter] has a predatory air about it: its every move is calculated, its instincts are uncluttered by sentiment, and its aim, in the end, quite lethal." (Los Angeles Times)
With a narrative that "is as clear-eyed and cold-blooded as her hero" (The New Yorker), Julia Leigh depicts the hunt for the last known Tasmanian tiger by a man identified only as M, who wants to find the creature for a multinational biotech company. Tracking M''s fateful course, beginning at a remote house on the fringe of a vast wilderness and receding into the forest-a world of silence and stillness-The Hunter is a haunting tale of obsession and redemption. It is the story of a business proposition that takes on mythic aspects, as the quest for a nearly extinct animal becomes a search not for ultimate profit but for the essence of life that technology has all but crushed.
