Jessica Speart continues to entertain with the latest installment in her extremely enjoyable and informative Rachel Porter series, BLUE TWILIGHT. Having annoyed her superiors pretty much everywhere she¿s been stationed as a Fish and Wildlife Service agent, she¿s now in San Francisco investigating¿butterfly poaching? However, when a biologist goes missing and her friend Terri¿s boyfriend¿s daughter also disappears Rachel begins to fear that there¿s a lot more than the obvious going on. And although her boyfriend Jake Santou is back after surviving a brutal plane crash, his addiction to painkillers and alcohol is tormenting both of them. Plus, Terri is having a difficult time finding work as a female impersonator ¿ everyone wants Britney, not Madonna ¿ and Rachel¿s landlady is determined to teach Rachel how to cook. Yikes. More missing women, a mysterious cult-like figure who is engineering the butterfly poaching, and a bunch of obsessive butterfly collectors round out Rachel¿s list of problems that will keep her running to the book¿s exciting conclusion. Fans who have become disappointed with Nevada Barr should look to this wonderful series that continues to keep up the high level of quality Speart started with in the first Rachel Porter mystery, GATOR AIDE. Rachel is likeable for her humor, her determination, her love of wildlife, and her attitude that really annoys her bosses. The descriptions of San Francisco are also beautifully rendered as Rachel explores Chinatown and the city¿s wildlife. BLUE TWILIGHT concludes with one of the creepiest scenes written, and I can¿t encourage readers enough to follow this series. Don¿t miss it.
The rare Lotis Mission Blue butterfly, is every collectors' dream piece. Very few have the Lotis Blue. When the biologist originally sent to investigate an illegal butterfly trade goes missing, Rachel Porter is put on the case. ...................... Rachel Porter is an agent for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. She believes the previous person was murdered. While looking into the disappearance, a little girl also goes missing and witnesses start dying. Rachel must quickly learn what makes this butterfly so valued and why collectors are so interested in such a delicate creature. More importantly, why would someone become a cold blooded killer to get one. ........................... **** Definitely a good read! The last thirty pages kept 'butterflies' in my stomach. Author Jessica Speart spins a tale that is guaranteed to keep her readers on the edge of their seats and up well into the night. ****
