Product Description

Dr. Nick Polchak is called to a farm community in eastern North Carolina to investigate a murder. The victim is the owner of a failing organic farm who had developed a drug problem, and the police think his murder is drug-related.

Nick finds the remains of a bale of marijuana scattered in the tomato fields--but the South American marijuana seems to be strangely infested with a common North Carolina insect: the tobacco hornworm. To further confound the mystery, the bugs are infected with a fungus from Asia. Nick suspects the man wasn't killed because of the marijuana, but because of the insects it contained. He then discovers that a vicious agricultural scheme is underway to cripple the U.S.'s corn and ethanol production. But just how far will these terrorists go in their quest?

Publisher's Description

Nick Polchak must stop a terrorist from causing a global ecological nightmare.

Two beautiful women from Nick's past are competing for his heart.

He's not sure which impending disaster makes him more nervous.

When forensic entomologist Nick Polchak is called to the scene of a murder on a small organic farm in North Carolina he is astonished to find that the victim's estranged wife is an old friend, a woman he once worked with—a woman he once had feelings for. When she asks Nick to investigate her husband's drug-related murder, Nick seeks the assistance of Alena Savard, the reclusive dog trainer known to the people of northern Virginia as the Witch of Endor.

Alena jumps at the chance to renew her relationship with Nick—but when she arrives in North Carolina she discovers that she's not the only woman who has her eye on the Bug Man. Soon Nick finds his usually analytical mind clouded by thoughts of a strangely human nature. These two women have stirred feelings that he can't quite fathom, feelings of lost opportunities and future possibilities . . .

Now Nick must navigate the unexplored territory of his own heart while he solves an agroterrorist's plot to ignite an environmental holocaust that could spread to the ends of the earth.

    I am still reading this book, but as the other 4 books, it is awesome. I feel like I kow Nick Polchak and his characters. I am going to be sad when I read book 6 as the end unless there is a book 7 in the offing.

    I love the Bug Man series. I have read every one of the series and they have all been full of mystery and info that you wouldn't think about. They keep you on the edge and it's hard to put the books down.

    I have enjoyed each of the Bug Man books, from the very first, and the Ends of the Earth was a perfect addition to the series. Two of his leading ladies are back, and Nick is as clueless as ever about matters of the heart. But he's beginning to realize he is part of the human species after all. And the mystery/suspense angle is perfect! A great read for those who like suspense filled with quirky characters.

    Hooray, and pass the chunks of beef liver! Nick Polchak is back, and he is as delightfully brilliant and bone-headed as ever! If youre not familiar with award-winning author Tim Downs unusual protagonist from any of the previous 6 mystery novels in the Bug Man series, youre in for a treat. His blisteringly funny sarcastic wit with students and colleagues, his total and utter cluelessness regarding women, his fascination with insects to the point of identifying with them more than humans, and his stunningly brilliant ability to help solve crimes through the study of bugs makes him one of the quirkiest, most intriguing amateur detectives imaginable. As in the previous novels, Nick is faced with the challenge of unraveling a murder mystery, but this one has international entanglements, and cataclysmic consequences of global proportions. If that werent enough, Nick also finds himself in not just one, but two potential romantic relationships with women from past cases. Watching Nick painstakingly put the pieces of the mystery together in his inimitable fashion is always worth the read, but watching him struggle to even understand both women, much less take his first halting steps towards his first romantic relationship in the midst of a case was vastly entertaining! Ends of the Earth is one of the most thoroughly enjoyable novels Ive read in a long time, and I cant recommend it highly enough!
