At a religious ceremony, the peaceful and lawful village in Bali is stunned when the six-year old daughter of their leader is kidnapped in front of the whole village. The three men sped away on motorbikes, one clutching Ayu. They were followed closely by Ayu’s uncles Ketut and Putu and the hero of our story, Hiram Kane. Kane was in the beautiful village relaxing after leading a trying expedition and had become fast friends with Ketut and Putu.
The kidnappers got away – with the frightened Ayu in tow. When returning to the village, Putu tearfully confesses that he got in trouble with a local gang leader over a shipment of drugs that had gone awry.
Simultaneously, the nearby Mount Agung was starting to shake the ground in preparation for an eruption as Kane, Putu and Ketut set out to find and rescue Ayu. The volcanologists predict that the mountain is ready to erupt at any moment.
An exciting and daring rescue and escape plan is the highlight of the novel.
This book is well written (if a little simplistic), and plotted. I enjoyed it. It is a hero beats all odds novel with a few twists thrown in for good measure. It is reminiscent of action/thriller-writers like James Rollins, or the old Clive Cussler books. It does not, however, have the science on which Rollins bases his books. If you like an action book and don’t mind suspending your belief system for a bit, this is a pretty good escapist read.
As a traveling adventurer, Kane always seems to find himself in the wrong place at the right time. In this book, the kidnapping of a child in a tiny Bali village sets off a chain of events that reveals corruption and darkness in the heart of Indonesia. Mr. Moore has traveled extensively, and breathes life, authenticity, and mystery into his locations. One of my favorite action scenes was a hi-seed motorbike chase though the winding streets of the Monkey Forest tourist attraction. Having recently visited the area myself, it really came alive in my minds eye.
Tiger Temple is a quick, fun read, that is more than worth your time and money. Give it a go, and I suspect you'll be following more of Kane's adventures in the near future...
I purchased a copy of this e-book but was gifted a copy of the audiobook from the author and the above is my voluntary and unbiased review.
I received this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review.
Steve Moore has created a character that is parts Bond, parts Dirk Pitt, with the rest totally original. Aside from a few words that seemed to be odd to me - but that could be that the author uses English English and I read/write American English, almost two different languages at times LOL.
I have the Condor Prophecy on my kindle now -- that's going to be read very soon . . .

I’ve visited Bali several times and know several of the locations really well, so I was immediately immersed into the story like I was there, which made it all the more of a rollercoaster ride.
Can’t wait to read the next book to see what happens next to Mr Kane and what I’m also going to learn.
This novella is well written, if not in places a little over told. But there are few errors and the authors obvious knowledge of the local landscape is plain to see.
