The Devil in Butterfly Wings is the 3rd book that I have read by Wes Bundy.
Quite the interesting read! It's one of those books that you start to read and you don't want to put it down. You have to know just what is going to happen next. In fact, I do my reading in bed at night, and a couple of nights I stayed up way too late reading. Finishing it, I was up most of the night!
Kathy and Steve are a well to do couple living in the burbs. Their life seems pretty routine, and they haven't done anything but try to get along for many years. Steve off work due to an accident so home all day, and Kathy off to work each day as the owner of her own company.
The sexy Tracy moves in across the street which piques Steve's interest because she loves to come out to get her newspaper early in the morning, most mornings completely nude. Steve finds himself just watching her every morning. She finally comes across the street and invites Steve and Kathy over for a get to know us BBQ.
Well, before the BBQ night Steve gets a call. He finds that his wife has been brutally attacked and left in a liquor store parking lot. She dies shortly after getting to the hospital.
The investigation of her homicide begins. Things are found out about Kathy and her secret life that she's led for years.
This is a good mystery. I normally do not read books, however, that are this sexually explicit along the way. Tracy comes on to Steve, but also the life that Kathy had been leading. Interesting, very interesting.
I don't want to give away the whole book! I will say that I found myself disappointed by the way Mr. Bundy chose to end the book. So much so that I laid awake in bed at least another hour asking myself why?? That's all I will say about it though, as I still sit and wonder as I write this.
If you enjoy an edge of your seat book, I highly recommend that you read this one. I know several of my readers who do enjoy books just like this one.
I have reviewed Mr Bundy's other 2 books as well if you missed them:
