Publisher's Description

Forensic entomologist Nick Polchak (a.k.a. the Bug Man) is hired by thirty-year-old Kathryn Guilford, who is terrified of bugs, to solve her friend's death. When Polchak stumbles into the mystery of how Kathryn's husband was killed years earlier, the action kicks into high gear -- and Polchak finds himself on the run with his client from someone who will do anything to keep a secret.

This fast-paced murder mystery is more than the typical "Christian fiction;"it is good clean fun -- on a thrill ride. Biblical values are implicit rather than explicit, and its fascinating elements provoke thought on a conscience, consequences, and world-views. But mostly, this book is a sizzler of a story that will not let you go.

    This author did his research for sure. I am in the medical field and all the details he brought through this story were excellent, he kept the plot twisting and turning. I love the main character..for a change he is just a funky professor with a very interesting personality trait..he identifies with the bugs he studies. Very good adventure story, lots of interactions and I would recommend this series to anyone.

    Tim Downs does it again. I loved this book. I could hardly put it down. It was great from front to back. With all the scientific terms he put it all in laymans terms and it was very interesting and humorous. Definitly a must read!

    The bug man novels are great. I would definitely recommend this book to others. The plot is very good and moves at a steady pace. If you have never experienced the bug man novels you are missing out. I encourage you to read these.

    Good mystery. No foul language to ruin the story. Refreshes any microbiology/biolgy you might have studied in school. Gross at points with the descriptions of bodies and the insects causing their return to dust. Still, a good read that keeps you wanting to know, what happens next? Jesus Christ is not really a part of this book which is why I rated it a 4. (it is not negative against Christians eithr.)
