Summary:

Near an isolated mansion lies a beautiful garden.

In this garden grow luscious flowers, shady trees...and a collection of precious "butterflies"-young women who have been kidnapped and intricately tattooed to resemble their namesakes. Overseeing it all is the Gardener, a brutal, twisted man obsessed with capturing and preserving his lovely specimens.

When the garden is discovered, a survivor is brought in for questioning. FBI agents Victor Hanoverian and Brandon Eddison are tasked with piecing together one of the most stomach-churning cases of their careers. But the girl, known only as Maya, proves to be a puzzle herself.

As her story twists and turns, slowly shedding light on life in the Butterfly Garden, Maya reveals old grudges, new saviors, and horrific tales of a man who'd go to any length to hold beauty captive. But the more she shares, the more the agents have to wonder what she's still hiding....

  • Donna Chambers

    I listened to it twice. Scary and I loved the main character. ..

  • Kim schlegel

    I loved both narrators. I really enjoyed this books great plot and good characters but it's just missing something. I wish there had been more character development with some characters. The ending was a little underwhelming.

  • Brandy Stracener

    I honestly could not stop listening to this and finished it in one day. The story takes place in the present with two FBI agents interviewing a survivor from the 'Butterfly Garden'. The survivor Maya recounts her life and experiences leading up to and while in the garden. I liked how the author developed the relationships between the characters including those held captive in the garden. It is definitely a horrifying and fast paced thriller, worth checking out.

  • Nancy Dobosiewicz

    I loved this book. Dark and twisted with just the right amount of suspense for me. Not an edge of your seat nail biter but certainly not rubbish as others have stated in their review. I enjoyed the narration and the characters. Initially the transition from female to male narrator had me startled and even a bit confused but that was quickly overcome. I'm looking forward to more books from this author.

  • Anastasiya Johnson

    Absolutely rubbish! This book is from the "Mystery & Thriller" category. It should be transferred to "Fantasy". It's doesn't have realistic scenery, characters, or dialog. I am very sorry I wasted my money on this book.

  • Sarah Merriman

    A pretty good book all together. It definitely kept me interested. The narrators were fine but their voices and style didn't mesh well. Each time the narrator transitioned to the male it was a bit startling and took away from the story for a minute.
