Deep inside China's famous Wolong Nature Reserve, an endangered Giant Panda named Ling has disappeared, and for his seventh mission, Jack is paired with a surly, sixteen-year-old park assistant named Fong to help track the panda down. As a member of the evil Scorpion Gang, Fong and a partner Wong have been posing as assistants to steal Ling, and several other rare creatures from the reserve to sell on the black market. Now Jack must infiltrate the ruthless gang's Beijing headquarters, overrun with menacing teenage thieves, and rescue Ling and the other animals before they, and maybe Jack, disappear forever.
Jack finally receives a coded message from his missing brother Max. However, Jack is whisked away to Kenya to investigate a series of elephant killings where the corpses have been robbed of their tusks. Jack must find the poachers responsible before more of these endangered species are destroyed.
The adventures of young secret agent Jack Stalwart continue in this seventh installment of Hunt's bestselling series.
