Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A semi-retired mercenary now lives on a remote island off the coast of Mexico, an island threatened in its ancient ways by the possible sell off to oil interests. Through his business partner undertaking an operation to recover control of an emerald mine, he hopes to be able to buy the island. So we have a slow start that suddenly turns with a bang and takes off at a hell of a pace, lots of action, cruelty, mixed-up psychotic characters and twists aplenty. Excellent gung-ho adventure.

Synopsis

Butterfly Man by Jeffrey Lee

On an island off the coast of Mexico, former soldier of fortune Burr Whitman lives alone, studying butterflies. He hopes he has left behind a violent past, but the mysterious disappearance of a friend, and a lucrative new mission combine to lure him back into a world of intrigue and bloodshed.


Burr's mercenary company is hired to recapture an emerald mine from rebels, deep in the Colombian Amazon. It should be a straightforward operation, but in the jungle shadows, nothing is as it seems. Burr must contend with shifting alliances, betrayal in his own camp and the distractions presented by Leila Walcott, a doctor who is searching the jungle for medicinal plants.


As emerald fever grips the region, swept by rumours of the fabled lost city of El Verde, Marxist guerrillas, right-wing death squads and Indian tribes become locked in an increasingly bitter struggle for the forestâs wealth. The carnage mounts until the very survival of the rainforest is at stake, and Burr Whitman finds himself fighting for much more than just a paycheque...
