Exterminators (Assassin Bugs, Book 2) Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
"Wild and clever fun." - Carl Hiaasen All Bob Dillon ever wanted was a truck with a big fiberglass bug on the roof.
All he had to do was survive a half dozen assassination attempts, pull a ten million dollar con on a Bolivian drug lord, and then fall off the face of the earth with his family and his new best friend, Klaus.
Six years later, they've surfaced in Oregon where they are continuing to work on an all-natural means of pest control. Bob and Klaus are using advanced gene sequencers to consolidate the perfect insect-killing traits into one deadly bug.
All this serious DNA tampering is expensive and they're running low on funds.
But who will invest? The interested outfit turns out to be a front for an agency of the Department of Defense, and they want to enlist Bob, Klaus, and the bugs in the War on Terror. Things go swimmingly until that Bolivian drug lord discovers he was conned: he offers twenty million to whomever kills Bob and Klaus.
Some of the world's best assassins descend on Hollywood and the weirdness reaches an apocalyptic level.... AUTHOR: Bill Fitzhugh is the author of eleven satiric novels, including Pest Control which has been translated into half a dozen languages, produced as a stage musical, and a German radio show; Warner Brothers owns the film rights.
He lives in Los Angeles.
