Ends of the Earth by Tim Downs

Nick must face the realities of lost opportunities and the passing of time as he struggles to protect a mother and her child from agro-terrorists in this latest novel from award-winning author Tim Downs.

Dr. Nick Polchak is called to a farm community in eastern North Carolina to investigate a murder. The victim is the owner of a failing organic farm who had developed a drug problem, and the police think his murder is drug-related.

Nick finds the remains of a bale of marijuana scattered in the tomato fields--but the South American marijuana seems to be strangely infested with a common North Carolina insect: the tobacco hornworm. To further confound the mystery, the bugs are infected with a fungus from Asia. Nick suspects the man wasn't killed because of the marijuana, but because of the insects it contained.

He then discovers that a vicious agricultural scheme is underway to cripple the U.S.'s corn and ethanol production. But just how far will these terrorists go in their quest?

OOOhhhhhh these books look terrific! I can't wait to read A Prisoner of Versailles, Plain Promise (love this series), and A Man of His Word (looks really different than other Amish fiction I've read)!

Love the Bug Man! Can't wait until Neta Jackson's new book comes out. I still this dress is a bit prudish for the character. I mentioned it on my blog and the author laughed about it.

You'll like the new Yada series Rel. Give it a try.

Yep, the Tim Downs one would be a great read.

And of course you know I'd go for the Amish ones too.
