Mexico City is a vibrant, exciting and dangerous place, rife with drug cartel violence and political corruption. Yet, the city conceals another side just as treacherous, one that can be found in the elegant mansions, manicured compounds and seductive glamour of Mexico’s very rich.

When Lili Golden’s beautiful sister, owner of The Palace of the Blue Butterfly art gallery, disappears in Mexico’s enormous capital, Lili abandons her comfortable stateside life to search for her. Soon she finds herself swept into her sister’s glittering world . . .


Praise for the writing


It takes a skillful writer to get you hooked on a subject in which you had no prior interest. Jane Rosenthal did that for me. Now I want to eat good Mexican food - IN Mexico, go to Mexican art museums and pierce the shroud of smog hanging over Mexico City to see for myself what's inside. Mostly I want to find out what happens next. Will there be a sequel? It's too soon for the fun to end, and this was a fun summer read.
