When you think of jobs that would really suck to have, Bonnie’s has to be at the top. She cleans up trauma scenes. But, with a husband who won’t get a job and a son who is troubled, she really has no choice. As Bonnie’s life builds in frustration, she notices a strange caterpillar at many of her crime scene job locations. It turns out that this caterpillar is a rare butterfly that shouldn’ even be in the United States. Bonnie is thrown into a series of events that may be caused by an ancient Aztec goddess or ultimately may be committed by Bonnie herself. Quick, suspensful read with a supernatural, folk tale feel. An extremely gory psychological thriller. 2002, 218 pages.
