Pest Control by Bill Fitzhugh


The story synopsis: Bob Dillon is a down-on-his-luck exterminator from Queens who just wants to make a killing with his radical new environmentally-friendly pest elimination technique, involving his hybrid assassin bugs (a very real group of insects). But when Bob decides to advertise, his flyer falls into the hands of a European murder-for-hire broker who mistakes Bob for a professional assassin. Before he knows it, Bob's "competition" targets him for extermination, sending him running for his life from a motley collection of the world's deadliest and most outrageously eccentric contract killers.
My Thoughts: This book was amusing and had a few laugh out loud moments. I greatly enjoyed it and plan to get some more books by this author.

I started this once but ran out of time and had to return it to the library. I had intended to get it again but forgot about it; now I'll have to add it to my list!

Hi Sharon,

Sorry the 'Admittedly Hawken' blog hasn't been updated recently, but the brains behind that project are still working elsewhere. You can find some of it here: www.benhawken.com/
