Is your dog ugly?

Fans of Tim Downs "Bug Man" mysteries can rejoice that there is a new adventure of forensic entomologist Nick Polchak on shelves, Less Than Dead:

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 ...

To celebrate the new book, Downs is holding an "ugly dog" contest. If you think your dog has what it takes, check out the details at TitleTrakk's blog entry "Tim Downs' Less Than Dead Ugly Dog Contest!"
