I honestly didn't know what I was getting when I downloaded the free kindle version of this book, but my inner nature nut was taken in by the butterfly on the cover. I read a lot of genres, but crime thriller is not among them. However, this book held my interest. The Butterfly Forest has a great main character in retired cop Sean O'Brien, and plenty of action and mystery to keep the plot moving along. The author clearly knows his home state of Florida, and weaves a lovely side story of endangered butterflies into the murder mystery set in the Ocala Forest. I enjoyed this story very much, as I was both educated and entertained, and feel a bit guilty for the free read. ( )

"College graduate student Molly Monroe is about to release rare butterflies not far from where the FBI used 4,000 bullets in a shootout to kill Ma Barker and one of her gangster sons in 1936. Molly snaps a picture that will frame something she never sees coming. Sean O'Brien does see something - a predator. Between the sea of cars in a Walmart parking lot. Walking quickly. Stalking two women. As O'Brien tries to prevent the abduction, he opens the door to a new relationship. And he opens a dark door to a horror that is secluded within the forest. Bodies are discovered, and police think an old man is responsible. O'Brien believes it may be something else, something hidden deep in the forest. To prove it, he's forced to find it. He follows veiled tracks that lead him farther into the woods where an evil from the past intersects with a frightening presence to from a volatile trap with only one way out"--Amazon.com.… (more)
