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 you're not familiar with award-winning author Tim Downs' unusual protagonist from any of the previous 6 mystery novels in the Bug Man series, you're 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 weren't 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 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 I've read in a long time, and I can't recommend it highly enough!
