Equal parts chilling, tragic and hopeful, Rene Denfeld's new novel combines her haunting, lyrical prose with a page-turning and harrowing mystery, putting The Butterfly Girl into a league of its own. Fans of The Child Finder will devour this.

There is a beautifully plangent, poetic quality to her depiction of a world that she knows all too well.

Reminds us that storytelling remains one of the most powerful means we have of confronting our darkest human impulses, and sometimes overcoming them

Denfeld lived on the streets herself as a child, and some of the most vivid passages are based on her memories. In an atmosphere of dread, the novel leads to a climax that exposes decades of murder and abuse
