This story starts from several angles. Molly and Mark are in the Ocala National Forest in Florida to release rare butterflies. While they are there, they get the creepy feeling that they are being watch so they leave. Former detective Sean O’Brien is in the parking lot of Wal-Mart when he stops the abduction of a mother and daughter but gets suspicious when the attacker has a strange tattoo of a woman with black wings. You also meet Luke Palmer. He was recently released from San Quentin. He has a map to the treasure left behind during Ma Barker’s time. Everything revolves around the Ocala National Forest. Molly and Mark have stumbled into the wrong corner on their hunt for the Coontie plants for the butterflies. Sean is called to investigate a murder in the forest. Luke’s treasure map takes him to the forest also. But there is more going on than just these three incidents. This is my first Sean O’Brien story. I thought it was well done. I loved the imagery. I felt like I was right in the forest with everyone else. I really liked the idea of the bad guys and why they were there. I really liked Sean. He has so many skills and so much knowledge but is very realistic. This is a good story. This is a good mystery that many will like. Now I need to get the first two books in the series and catch up. I was giving a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest opinion.

How to brew a mystery? Mix the toxic ingredients of a dense jungle, murder, drug dealing, and hidden loot. Season with an active bombing range, a marina full of unconventional characters, and a foiled abduction at the local Walmart parking lot. Garnish with pagan rituals performed by latter day hippies. Blend in Florida heat. What do you have? Tom Lowe’s The Butterfly Forest. Former cop Sean O’Brien wades through a sweaty Florida maelstrom to save the life of a newfound love. O’Brian, a Gulf War vet, must not only solve crime, but cross police lines to prevent further loss of life. His efforts put him in the crosshairs of a vicious international criminal. Mystery readers, have a taste of Tom Lowe’s The Butterfly Forest, but don’t be surprised if this mystery leaves you hungry for more of his work.
