Bob Dillon can’t get a break. A down-on-his-luck exterminator, all he wants is success with his radical new, environmentally friendly pest-killing technique. So Bob decides to advertise.
Unfortunately, one of his flyers falls into the wrong hands. Marcel, a shady Frenchman, needs an assassin to handle a million-dollar hit, and he figures that Bob Dillon is his man. Through no fault – or participation – of his own, this unwitting pest controller from Queens has become a major player in the dangerous world of contract murder.
And now Bob’s running for his life through the wormiest sections of the Big Apple – one step ahead of a Bolivian executioner, a homicidal transvestite dwarf, meatheaded CIA agents, cabbies packing serious heat… and the world’s number-one hit man, who might just turn out to be the best friend Bob’s got.
Reviews for the Assassin Bugs series
‘One of the funniest, most off-beat thrillers... an action-packed plot stuffed with streetwise lines and larger than life characters.’ The Times
‘Wild and clever fun.’ Carl Hiaasen
‘Does for beetles what Jurassic Park did for dinosaurs… within its fascinating pages is a cast of creepy crawlies whose murderous methods put human predators to shame. Perfect holiday reading.’ Liverpool Daily Post
