Penguin Random House author, Richard Peirce, leads the dramatic adventure from lion farms in South Africa to wildlife traffickers in Laos and Vietnam. He makes a shocking discovery that wildlife ranchers in South Africa are farming lions in their thousands to export their bones to Asia for traditional medicine. Richard battles to uncover the elaborate wildlife fraud of processing lion bones into food products which could contain the 'world's deadliest infectious disease.' The heart-warming tale of two lion cubs given a new life, along with positive approaches to wild lion conservation resolves the film with positivity.
