An acclaimed mystery writer and respected journalist specializing in wildlife issues, author Jessica Speart tells an extraordinary but true tale of greed, obsession, and sexual temptation, masterfully chronicling the downfall of the “Indiana Jones of insects” through the determined efforts of a rookie Fish and Wildlife agent who put his life on the line to stop him.
