Book Jacket:

The flies on the wall can talk… and forensic entomologist Nick Polchak is listening.

Within minutes of a murder, the first fly arrives at the scene. Soon there are hundreds, then thousands, and each one knows the victim’s story. Each one can tell a tell of hatred and vengeance and intrigue.

In a remote county of North Carolina, thirty-year-old Kathryn Guilford receives the news that her long-time friend and one-time suitor is dead. The authorities declare the death a suicide, but Kathyrn is not convinced. In desperation she turns to Dr. Nick Polchak, the Bug Man, to help her learn the truth- and she is introduced to a mysterious world of blood seeking flies and flesh-eating beetles.

But there’s a problem… Kathryn Guilford has a pathological fear of insects. Now she must confront her darkest fears to unearth a decade long conspiracy that threatens to turn her entire world upside down.
