Would You Morph into Someone You're Not......If it Meant Getting Everything You Want?Dare to Look Behind the Curtain
Within everyone's mind is a curtain. And you never really know someone until you've been behind it. So, how well do you really know your friends...your family...or your lover?
...Living in a Tangled Web of Questions... How much are you willing to change and reinvent yourself to get what you think you need to become better...richer...happier...or more powerful?
A group of seemingly ordinary folks must grapple with these burning questions when a string of bizarre serial killings besieges Larchmont, a rural town nestled in the sweltering heat of Texas.
These haunting questions become even more oppressive because small-town Texas folks know they're supposed conform to "fit in."
... A pedophile who preys on unsuspecting children with his camera ...A wealthy funeral director who takes advantage of his despondent clients in the most despicable ways...A wretched old women who steals and murders dogs for profit...And a heartless government swine who swindles money intended for safe school drinking water systems...
They all turn up dead. All viciously poisoned by nicotine liquid. All demented,tortured souls who cry out from the hereafter for justice. So, justice must be served - even as the "good" people of Larchmont cheer their deaths.
If feeling sympathy for a psychotic serial killer crosses a dark forbidden line,
the questions The Butterflies ask are...
Who gets to draw the line? And who gets to move it?
This book may sound vicious but I can assure you that there was little blood and gore. In fact this book is the perfect one for readers who like a good thriller but not the blood and gore. For a thriller fan like me, I was very happy with this book. The fact that the two main characters, Molly and Manny are damaged made them more personable. In fact, Molly said it best about the two of them "You and I are a team; you're the best partner I could hope for; we're not perfect, that's true; but who is". This could not have been said any better. Molly and Manny truly did make good partners. They complimented each other in the investigation.
Speaking of the murders. It was hard to feel any remorse for the victims. All of them were bad people. They things they did would make anyone want to kill them. In all the murder books I have read I can't quite recall coming across murder by nicotine poisoning. So, this was refreshing to come across a new way versus stabbing, mutilation, strangling, etc.
If you are looking for a good book to read, you should check this book out. Author, Kimberley Waldron serves up a thrilling, good read with complex characters, and a strong storyline in The Butterflies that is sure to be a fan among thriller fans!
