"All roads lead to the White House for John Henry Braden, the charismatic senator from Virginia aristocracy whose beautiful wife Victoria is the talk of Washington and the crown jewel of Endor, her backwoods Virginia hometown. But when bodies turn up on Braden's property - the site of a multimillion dollar construction project he's spearheading - the senator's spin doctors, led by his future first lady, must act quickly to quell a conspiracy that threatens to blemish their upcoming presidential campaign." "Enter entomologist Nick Polchak, the quirky bug expert enlisted by Special Agent Nathan Donovan to determine if the senator's boneyard is a forgotten cemetery or a grisly crime scene." "When the investigation breaks open, Polchak follows local legend to Alena Savard, a tortured pariah known to comb the woods with mongrel cadaver dogs in search of her missing father. In one night, the two uncover a mass grave teeming with deadly questions whose answers take them from the outskirts of Endor to the halls of Capitol Hill as they track a desperate killer bent on protecting a terrible secret."--BOOK JACKET.

Nick Polchak is one of those characters that grow on you. The interesting facts that are woven into the story on forensic entomology are quite fascinating. A darned good read.
