As in the middle grade series debut "Island of Thieves," scrappy twelve-year-old Tom Trelawney and his swashbuckling Uncle Harvey are a dynamite combination in the dangerous, explosive sort of way. This time around, they impulsively fly from Ireland to India in hot pursuit of a small bejeweled tiger that yet another Trelawney, a British soldier, allegedly plundered in 1799. They re pretty sure they can get a couple milliondollars for it too, if they can make it past agun-happy Aussie and a pit of man-eating tigers.
