Less Than Dead

Listen, if you read the first chapter you'll just get all mad at yourself because you don't have the rest of the book to finish. Trust me on this one... this is a keeper and besides that, it is a magnificent read. How many times have I said that in the past 2 years? Ummmm once.
You just gotta love The Bug Man... he is sarcastic in such an endearing way. No one gets his humor, but I do and it's the kind I like. I said indearing and meant it. It's one of those novels that keep you turning pages and reading faster and faster. You don't want to put it down because everytime you get ready to turn out the light, another twist comes along and you've got to see if you are correct in your deductions. I especially like the villioness. She's got a lot of panache, and you just love to hate her.
So, go buy the book. It is well worth it. You may even want to read this one again.

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

Tim Downs


Tim Downs is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Indiana University. After graduation in 1976 he created a comic strip, Downstown, which was syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate until 1986. His cartooning has appeared in more than a hundred major newspapers worldwide.

His first book, a work of non-fiction, was awarded the Gold Medallion Award in 2000. His first novel, Shoofly Pie, was awarded the Angel Award in 2004, and his third novel, PlagueMaker, was awarded the Christy Award for best suspense novel of 2007. First The Dead, the third book in this Bug Man series came out earlier this year.

Tim lives in Cary, North Carolina, with his wife Joy.


Some secrets just won't stay buried.
When strange bones surface on a U.S. senator's property, the FBI enlists forensic entomologist Nick Polchak to investigate the forgotten graveyard. Polchak's orders are simple: figure out the mess.

But Polchak, known as the "Bug Man" because of his knowledge of insects and their interaction with the dead, senses darker secrets buried beneath the soil.

Secrets that could derail the senator's presidential bid.

Secrets buried in the history of a quaint Virginia town.

Secrets someone is willing to kill to protect.

With the help of a mysterious local woman named Alena and her uncanny cadaver dogs, Polchak sets out to dig up the truth.

But with a desperate killer hot on his trail, he'll be lucky to wind up anything less than dead.
