It’s on the prowl and it’s no pussycat. Nobody is safe. A deadly black panther roams leafy England in a fast-paced action-thriller laced with dark humour. The wooded hills of London’s Stockbroker Belt are home to those who make a killing on the financial markets, but a predator of a different kind is on the loose. When a vodka-sodden shooting party of property developers and their Russian oligarch host unwittingly wound an escaped big cat, it strikes back with apparent supernatural ease. Rosie Flynn is fed up with people looking down on her because she's ‘just a dog warden'. She is on a mission to prove them wrong, one that will change her life. West African gardener Henry Olembe and his sister Faith, a housemaid, believe the panther is a spirit of the forest incarnate, sent to destroy those who desecrate ancient woodland. Bob Coulston, police detective and big cat enthusiast, thinks nothing of the sort. Mocked for years in the press, he now possesses irrefutable evidence of big cats living in the wilds of Britain. After the panther kills one of its tormentors live on national radio, this unlikely foursome attempt to achieve what the British Army, the police, and hundreds of beer-swilling bounty hunters cannot do: stop the man-eater before it slays again. The hunt leads them through England’s secret corners: from a primeval druids’ grove to arcane tales of the Hound of the Baskervilles, and encounters with the exotic wildlife that flourishes hidden from view. Rosie and her new friends corner the beast at night in an empty shopping mall, but who is the hunter and who is the hunted? Before their ordeal is over, they have to find answers to their questions and to one more. Does the big cat hunt alone?
