Book Review: Ends of the Earth: A Bug Man Novel by Tim Downs

Product 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.

Ends of the Earth was an outstanding novel. I cannot think of a single way it could be improved. The plot was creative, and Nick's character continues to be my favorite of all time. The suspense was absolutely solid, and the theme of agricultural terrorism was fascinating to consider. I also found myself completely caught up in Nick's dilemma about which woman he should pursue! I really could go on and on about how much I love the Bug Man novels, but all I really need to say is you will not be disappointed when you get this book in your hands! 5 of 5 stars.
