Perry wakes up in an arroyo, hungover and unsure how he got there. His wallet and cell phone missing, he walks back to the last place he remembers being before he blacked out—the bar. Fueled by alcohol and a touch of companionship, Perry is determined to find out who rolled him, but standing in his way is an accident that happened six months earlier and the struggle his life has become since. In his search for the material things taken from him, he risks walking right past something far more precious: A new beginning. This new novella by Zelazny is dark, gripping, emotional noir at its best!

“Butterfly Potion is both a disturbing and touching tale. If you’ve ever been in the gutter (literally or figuratively) you know this book speaks the truth. Like a mixture of Charles Bukowski and Dashiell Hammett, Trent Zelazny takes us down a road filled with mystery, danger, a gorgeous redhead, and booze… lots of booze.”
—Sarah L. Covert, Editor of She Never Slept
