Rivett died and has not been seen since.
Henry Kennedy lives on a mountain on the other side of the world. He is not who he says he is. Is he a murderer, or a man who can never clear his name? And is he the only one with something to hide?
Set in Tasmania, Africa and London's Belgravia, The Butterfly Man is an absorbing novel about transformation and deception.
"Rose's lyrical melding...is masterful. Intriguing as the real-life events of the Lucan story are, Rose transforms it into something far more substantial." (The Australian)
"The success of this exquisitely crafted novel is that it is difficult to remind oneself that it is a work of imagination." (The Sunday Tasmanian)

Loved everything about this story
I absolutely loved this story. I loved the writing, how it was so melodic. It makes you completely absorbed with what happens to Henry. I could listen to this book once a month. It's deep, it's stimulating, whole paragraphs are put together so well, they just roll off the tongue. Humphrey Bowers does each accent perfectly. I love his Scottish brouge. I would love to see more from this author. I highly recommend this listen.

Just about anything Humphrey Bower reads is worth listening to. Coupled with the authors that he chooses to read for, one has a perfect match.
This particular story is both heart-warming and heart-wrenching. Although I knew all about the Cray Brothers, I was not familiar with the other historical facts in this novel. I enjoyed that fact that it leaves you guessing (especially if you listen to the credits at the end!)
If you enjoy this, you will also like Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
