Item Description...
An autopsy room is where secrets are revealed. . .or buried. Young Dr. Riley McKay has worked hard toward her career in pathology - and now she has secured a fellowship at the renowned Allegheny County Coroner's Office in Pittsburgh. But her promising future is threatened when suspicious activities incriminate her supervising pathologist, Dr. Nathan Lassiter. Bungled autopsies, concealed evidence, and unexplained wounds accumulate at an alarming rate. When Riley is ignored by her seniors and threatened by Dr. Lassiter, she turns in desperation to Dr. Nick Polchak, the Bug Man, to help her uncover the truth. From a handful of tiny maggots, Nick and Riley begin to unearth the facts, and together they discover that these blunders are not accidents but part of a larger evil that threatens their very lives. The flies on the wall can talk. Forensic entomologist Nick Polchak is listening.

Publishers Description
Intern forensic pathologist Dr. Riley McKay has noticed irregularities in autopsies at the Allegheny County Coroner's lab. Suspecting foul play, she seeks help from Dr. Nick Polchak, the "bug man" renowned for his ability to solve murders by analyzing the insects on victim's bodies. Nick and Riley uncover a sinister link between the lab's director and PharmaGen, a start-up drug company specializing in genetic research. They also discover that PharmaGen fronts an underground system to procure transplant organs for wealthy clients by finding and murdering matching donors. But PharmaGen learns of their security breach and orders the couple destroyed. While staying a step ahead of PharmaGen assassins, romantic attraction develops between Nick and Riley. But the attraction is complicated by a tragic secret that Riley hides -- a secret closely tied to one member of PharmaGen's operation which propels the novel to its astonishing conclusion.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I hate bugs  Jul 21, 2008
...But I really liked this book. If you like mysteries and a little forensic bug science thrown in, this is a good read. And if your hesitant because he is a christian author and you don't want to be preached at, not to worry, no soap box included, or foul language either.
Smart, Funny, Fun = One Great Book - mild spoiler warning  Jul 18, 2008
I had almost come to the point of despair over how few truly wonderful books I've read of late. This book cured that. I count myself lucky to be such a latecomer to this series because now I can snap up a few more of them without waiting. Why isn't this author world wide famous? His story has plot, humor, action, intellect, and handles them very well.
Dr. Polchak is an interesting character. Not your typical drop-dead gorgeous hero, but a smart guy who isn't afraid to take risks or dump himself and some poor woman into a river if the cause is right.
Some plot twists seemed a little too convenient, but that's the way a tight story's run. Dr. McKay is a nice foil to the lovable bug man.
Most importantly, this book made me laugh. I hate mysteries that simply overdo the seriousness factor. Chop Shop handles humor with a deft hand. Many many thanks to the author for this intriguing tale.
Excellent. I can't get enough of these bugs.  Mar 7, 2006
What an excellent book! A great improvement over the first in the series "Shoofly Pie" which I liked very much. Not as funny but much more intense. Both books had excellent endings. A lot of thought went into the writing of "Chop Shop" and it shows. Deep character, intelligent plot and sharp wit. Tim Downs is rising on my list of favorite authors. Now for the problem; there's very little that's Christian about it. It's clean, no sex, no cursing and it brings up some good ethical points (absolutes being the big one) but as far as spiritual growth it's not really there. Don't get me wrong this book is excellent but I do miss knowing our God just a little bit better when it's all over.
flies on walls tell all!  Feb 15, 2005
Rebeccasreads recommends BUG MAN2: CHOP SHOP as a lively & informative mystery about corporate doctors intent on securing a steady supply of body parts, & a young pathologist troubled by the autopsies her supervisor is making her sign-off on.

Dr. McKay finds Nick Pollack, the Bug Man of SHOO FLY PIE, in his greenhouse, & shows him some juicy maggots she's extracted from the latest corpse to cross her table. Together they set out on a trail of clues that will lead them to a firey & fatal finale.

Tim Downs has a hilarious way with words, poking fun of the pomposity of academia & financial tycoons, all the while spinning a gripping yarn. & if the ending, the real ending, leaves a bit to be desired, well, isn't that just like life?
