The butterfly garden / Dot Hutchison.
Förlag: Thomas & Mercer
"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 would 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 -- back cover.

Such a snore. This was nothing of what I thought it would be. Characters were (more or less) stereotypical. You never really got any firmer connection to any of them. The good cop, the loud-ass cop, the strong but not very fleshed out main protagonist and the lack of details (especially having the sickly good horror "Färjan" freshly in my memorybank). I'd probably recommend this to middle-aged personas who emjoy a kinda not-so-well-writen crime story. It had it's moment with the Garden in itself. But the pacing was just to slow. Attention to details is by far (in my opinion) muy importante to not just speed-read ones way through the book to find interesting parts. 4 previliged men with hoarding tendencies and small pricks out of 10
