Overview

Tanna Patterson-Z's meticulously researched novel, a fictionalized account of the 1998 kidnapping of mining executive Edward Leonard by Colombian renegades, guides readers deep into the physical and political terrain of a beautiful but dangerous country that remains off-limits to the casual traveller. At once a suspense thriller and an engrossing work of journalism, The Butterfly Connection is a story of a man who gets caught in the collision between Western corporate imperatives and revolutionary politics -- and whose unlikely obsession with the beautiful blue Morpho butterfly proves the key to his survival.
