Read this book as a book club selection. Interesting. It showed me a whole sub culture I never knew existed. Howeve, it was hard to get too excited about beetles and butterflies. Author could have fleshed out the story a bit with more characted information (i.e, wife). Worth reading.

When it comes to thinking about dangerous criminals, butterfly smugglers do not leap first to mind. But, as I learned in this book, insect smuggling is a very lucrative illegal business that threatens to render many butterflies extinct around the world as they are treated like trophies rather than living creatures. The author did a great job keeping my interest up while describing an undercover cat-and-mouse game that went on for years. I'll never look at butterflies--or especially, butterfly collectors--the same way again.
