Cover blurb:
'Doctor!' said Anji. This couldn't be happening, he couldn't just walk out on them! 'Look, give them a chance, they're frightened, they're only —'
'Human?' The Doctor took a deep breath, as though to stop himself from saying anything more. 'Now, stay!'

The weather is going to hell. The tigers are coming to town. And the Doctor has taken his violin and vanished.

The island world of Hitchemus is home to a colony of musicians and seemingly harmless alien animals. When the storms and the tigers break loose, the Doctor tries to protect the humans — but the humans don't want him. When he ventures into the wilderness in search of the tigers' secrets, Fitz and Anji find themselves on their own, trying to prevent a war.

With both sides eager for blood, and hurricanes on the horizon, the Doctor must decide whether this time he's on the side of the human race.

This is another in the series of original adventures for the Eighth Doctor.

Note:  This is a print-on-demand reprint — although the book is orderable in exactly the same way as a "regular" book via Amazon or other booksellers. 3 of Kate Orman/Jonathan Blum's other BBC novels are also receiving the same treatment: Seeing I, Unnatural History and Blue Box — as well as Lance Parkin's 4 BBC novels: The Infinity Doctors, Father Time, Trading Futures and The Gallifrey Chronicles.

Cover blurb:
Same as original edition.
