Dogs have long been manâs best friend, but the Bug Manâs friends is a rare breed . . . the cadaver dog.
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 Bradenâs propertyâthe site of a multimillion dollar construction project heâs spearheadingâthe senatorâs spin doctors, led by his future first lady, must act quickly to quell a conspiracy before it blemishes their presidential campaign.
Enter entomologist Nick Polchak, the quirky bug expert enlisted to determine if the senatorâs bone yard is a forgotten cemetery or a crime scene.
To help with the investigation, Polchak follows local legend to Alena Savard, a mysterious woman known for her ability to turn mongrels into the best search dogs around. They soon find themselves on the trail of a desperate individual bent on protecting a terrible secret.
Less than Dead is an unforgettable tale of crime and concealment in the corridors of high-stakes politicsâas well as in the deepest contours of the human heart.

Posted June 18, 2010 by my2cents , san antonioE! for Excellent! The story reads smoothly and effortlessly, and is mesmerizing. Poignant and somewhat witty two-word sentence ending. Sadly, since fictional heroes eventually prove their tenacity, all great books end. However, I'm looking forward to my next Tim Downs read.
