Guide Me, Butterfly
By Martta Kaukonen

An addictive psychological thriller in the spirit of Gillian Flynn! It’s a sensational debut that has a new take on suspense.

Ida, 20, a serial killer who was abducted as a child, starts therapy with celebrity therapist Clarissa. Only one of them knows that they share a mutual secret from the past. Will the other one realize it before she gets murdered?

Clarissa is a middle-aged psychotherapist, the best in her field. She is familiar to everyone from her TV appearances and from glossy magazines. For her, every patient is a princess. And someone only she can save. Or can she? Clarissa already has one suicide to answer for; a teenage boy’s death never seizes to haunt her.

When Ida becomes Clarissa’s patient, a cat-and-mouse game begins in which rules are followed by no one. The kind of game that never ends well.

“Martta Kaukonen has already been named as Finland´s own Gillian Flynn and undeniably there’s a truth behind the statement. This hooking thriller spins you masterfully! Guide Me, Butterfly is a dizzening work! While reading one presumes that everything is as presented in the beginning of the book, only to realize, on the final page, that nothing was as the reader imagined! The most baffling bit is that in her debut Martta Kaukonen succeeds in spinning a most intricate plot from one surprise to another, and on to the next one, yet keeping the story logical and —–credible.”-Kirsi’s Book Club
