LEARN TO LOVE YOUR BUGS---ugh!! BUT GREAT BOOKS!!!
was looking for a scientific book for a fellow mystery reader and saw SHOOFLY PIE by Tim Downs. So with a heavy heart, because "BUGS" give me the shivers, I read this book as a preview for her, just hoping that I could manage to get through it without jumping out of my skin. WHO WOULD KNOW? I ABSOLUTELY LOVED "THE BUG MAN". The science and mystery are spot on and Nick Polchak-the Bug Man--is a reluctant charmer with a great dry wit. I happened to read SHOOEFLY first and went racing to the story to buy CHOP SHOP. The second book was even better than the first. I actually learned a great deal of information from both books and, though I cannot say that "bugs" are my friends, I find that they add a huge element of interest to a mystery story. As for Nick Polchak, well if he was real, and I was not married, I would be searching for him immediately. Instead, I just am on the search for more Bug Man books!!!!! Having both books made into one book is a real steal!!! If you have ever wanted to try something that seems out of your comfort level, these are the books that will make you jump for joy because you have found something new!!!

I found Tim Downs "Bug Man" series by mistake. I have grown to love these books, the light scarcasm, laugh out loud situations his characters are in and a fascinatng look at a new kind of CSI. Highly recommended. Don't hesitate to buy his books.

I agree with CrochetCat and RonnaL, I also stumbled across this
I agree with CrochetCat and RonnaL, I also stumbled across this author and found Tim Downs' Bug Man books by accident and his books are fascinatingly gross! I couldn't put them down and had to read every single one of them, I wish there were more in the making, I hope there are more in the making.Was this review helpful?
