The Big Issue calls The Last Tiger 'poignant and moving'

Great review for The Last Tiger in The Big Issue:
"Black is best known for a string of brutal, urban crime thrillers, so this change of pace into historical fiction is unexpected but very well executed. Set in Tasmania in 1910, the story is told by 12-year-old Myko, a newly arrived Lithuanian immigrant. Myko is entranced by the legendary status of the local Tasmanian tigers but is set along a path of conflict when his father has to take a job trapping the majestic animals. Delivered with insight, this tale of 
society’s outsiders is poignant and moving."   -The Big Issue
