Acerca de


The Striped Lion is the story of a bold experiment in wildlife conservation gone horribly wrong. A world-renowned foundation dedicated to the preservation of big cats accidentally impregnates an African lioness with the semen of a man-eating Siberian tiger and releases her into Kenya's Masai Mara Game Preserve. Only one of her cubs, the Alpha Male, survives to maturitym but hybrid vigor has endowed him with monstrous size and his father's genes have given him a taste for human flesh.

Fatalities mount across the Masai Mara as the tourist season approaches, threatening the Game Preserve's survival. Soon a desperate race is joined by the foundation and the Kenyan government to find and destroy the elusive predator before he kills again. But the searchers discover the problem is far more serious than they had ever imagined: The huge crossbreed has been mating with the local lionesses, and his offspring are man-eaters too.

The search team is headed by ex-fighter pilot, Barney McPherson, whose fearless exploits mask a suffering penitent, crippled by guilt over the death of his child.

McPherson's only hope of redemption is Fiona San Miguel, the beautiful, headstrong 'Golden Girl' of wildlife photography. The power of their love is put to the final test in the crucible of the Alpha Male's savagery.
