Product Description


by Peter G. Addison

"An order to mount some butterflies hardly holds out promise of danger, adventure and romance. Yet it is the figurative wings of a butterfly that waft Robert Adams into a series of adventures that carry him far from his little art shoppe in peaceful Scotland. Over oceans and across continents the chase leads him with never a let-up until he alights in South Africa, there to solve the mystery of 'The Butterfly Girl.'"

256 pages. 5.5" by 8 inches.
