I 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 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. Who knew that those pesky little beings could tell someone so much about a dead body? Who knew reading about the "got ya" moment would be so great when little buggies are involved? And best of all, my science friend fell in love with these mysteries and found the science compelling and a great addition to the 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! 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!!!

Excellent writing, plot and character development. The kind of book that begs to be read in one sitting. Talent like his is all too rare.

If you are squimish around bugs this book can help with your phobia! What an excellent read. Liking CSI, my family thought I might enjoy this book, it has mystery, suspense, questions, makes you think! I received it for Christmas and finished the day after!

bugs, bees, suicide, stench, murder, mystery, love, war, betrayal, small-town country folk - this book has it ALL. This book is the first in a series - hurry Tim write! I was entertained, grossed-out and learned some entomology ALL at the same time! Tim Downs' impecable research and general knowledge of the human species fly off these pages. Truly hard to put down.

Just finished reading this book and had a hard time putting it down. I was looking for a well written novel with interesting characters and content - found it! Eager to see more fiction from this author.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! I am an avid mystery/suspense reader, and without question this was one of the best books I have read in a while. It kept me up late into the night and I finished it in just 2 days. Great story, great characters, GREAT EVERYTHING!
