How to Steal a Mountain

The forest had been dangerous once. But not any more.

Samti’s life is happy, peaceful and illegal. The forest guards threaten her poaching trips, but she can outrun them. And then Samti’s world is turned upside down by a conservation project that wants to save the forest. But at the heart of the project’s plans is a mysterious animal that no one really understands. Worlds that have been safely separated for centuries are colliding. Lethal criminal networks are growing in influence and power. Treachery abounds. When things begin to go wrong, and go wrong badly, Samti faces a deadly choice that could ruin all she cherishes.
