Description
In this gripping real-life thriller, mystery writer and wildlife journalist Jessica Speart exposes the cutthroat underworld of illegal butterfly trading, a $200-million business that threatens numerous endangered species. She traces the pursuit of Yoshi Kojima, the "king of the butterfly smugglers," by rookie U.S. Fish and Wildlife Agent Ed Newcomer, who posed as a young apprentice eager to learn the smuggling trade. And like Susan Orlean in The Orchid Thief, Speart gets a little too close to her subject. Working undercover to research her book, she befriended Kojima as well, little knowing that the cagey smuggler intended to use her as a patsy for continuing his butterfly trade even after he had been caught.

"Meet the Hannibal Lecter of the conservation world.... This exposé reads like a thriller and proves once again that truth is stranger than fiction."—Lee Child
