Unnatural Selection... The butterfly collector's deathbed is a carpet of fresh bear grass and wildflowers. He is clutching a bunch of blue poppies, cultivated on the ecological preserve by the Avalon Parfumerie, makers of the exclusive Blue Poppy fragrance.
It doesn't take Fish and Wildlife Agent Venus Diamond long to discover that the area's fragile ecosystem has been exploited by more than murder. The neighboring village is home to the corporate offices of Avalon Industries, an elite celebrity health spa and a host of intrigues.
A species of butterfly saved from extinction, the excesses of the glamorous and powerful, and the simple motives that lure people to kill prove to Venus once again the ungovernable power of both humans and nature.
