Some secrets just won't stay buried. ^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.

- Publisher Nick Polchak, "The Bug Man," has finally met his match--an outcast who trains dogs to locate cadavers. When a grave is discovered on the property being excavated for the new Patriot Center mall--property that is owned by the front-running candidate for the next presidential election--the FBI immediately becomes involved. Nick's services are requested to help determine if this is a forgotten graveyard or evidence of foul play. But when the cadaver team the FBI has secured can't find any more graves, Nick follows local legend to a bizarre woman named Alena who keeps to herself in the mountains and trains the best cadaver dogs. When the FBI team takes credit for Alena's work on the local news and then immediately vanishes, Nick knows there's more here than simply a forgotten graveyard. This small town--and the presidential-hopeful and his wife--have closets full of skeletons. But how far will they go to keep Nick and Alena from uncovering the truth?
