Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday.  If you’re a newbie, here’s the scoop so you understand what follows.  Please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme.  This is the shortened, abridged version:

Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.

Below is this week’s “book cover,” offered for our creative blurbs by the talented Scott Liddell.

Tail of the Tiger
(150 words)

Computer whiz kid John Bonner grew up watching the world famous team of Stromheim and Ayo wow tourists around the world. John didn’t mind not sharing the spotlight; his passion is computers, not performing with the big cats as does John’s Uncle Strom.

An electrical storm blows the power at the Stromheim compound and the back-up generators are suspiciously inoperative, plunging the facility into darkness. When power returns, the compound is empty of every living creature . . . except John.

While the police explore physical leads, John hacks into his uncle’s computer for clues, only to discover that Stromheim is not just a stage performer, and Ayo isn’t just any tiger. And when Ayo turns up bloody and pacing outside the compound, John knows he must find a way to rescue his uncle and protect the big cat from those who would use him for their own evil ends.
