"Peopled with believable characters and written in an engagingly literary tone. The Butterfly Man is an impressive novel."
Australian Bookseller+Publisher

"An intriguing take on the Lord Lucan mystery and the theme of deception."
The Australian Women's Weekly

If you escape your past, how will you face your future?

On 7th November, 1974 a young English nanny named Sandra Rivett was murdered in London's West End. Her employer, Lord Lucan, was named as her attacker. It was widely assumed he had mistaken her for his wife. Lord Lucan disappeared the night Sandra Rivett died and has never been seen since. Henry Kennedy lives on a mountain on the other side of the world. He is not who he says he is. Is he a murderer or a man who can never clear his name? Set in Tasmania, Africa and London's Belgravia, The Butterfly Man is an absorbing new novel about transformation and deception.

"In this seamless marriage of author and narrator, we consider the nature of love and forgiveness and how much a person can change. That person is Lord Lucan, the real-life British peer who vanished in 1974 after the murder of his childrens' nanny. His disappearance and presumed guilt have inspired many writers but few as subtly as Heather Rose, who explores responsibility and redemption in this riveting novel. The book is set in England, Kenya, and finally Tasmania, to which a changed Lucan removes himself. So adept is Humphrey Bower at creating individual characterizations that this bravura one-man performance masquerades as a fine full-cast recording. Part love story, part morality play, this is altogether fascinating."
AudioFile Magazine

"The novel is as much about trust and honesty as it is about lies and deception. Intriguing as the real-life events of the Lucan story are, Rose transforms it into something far more substantial."
The Australian

"The success of this exquisitely crafted novel is that it is difficult to remind oneself that it is a work of imagination."
The West Australian
