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.

    " What is a five-star book? Pest Control ain't fine literature. Pest Control is exactly what I needed after finishing the immensely DARK The Road. My first thought, in trying to remove the pall left on me by The Road, turned to Christopher Moore as my possible salvation, but I've read all of his (wish he would write faster!) So I Googled "I like Christopher Moore so I should read" and came up with Bill Fitzhugh as a suggestion. Highly entertaining. Looking forward to reading more of his work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Polly | 1/29/2014

    " I would recommend all of this guy's writings. Off-beat, cause-related, witty, dark. Good eatin'! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni | 1/27/2014

    " I thought this book was amusing. It could easily be made into a super funny movie. I skimmed over many pages that had over-the-top bug descriptions.. but the rest was great. Very fast read. I read in a few hours at work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 1/25/2014

    " Outstanding book. Warped, twisted and very funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 1/18/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lea | 11/6/2013

    " Funny, quick and with a happy ending. And, lots of information about bugs. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it had had illustrations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn | 11/6/2013

    " This is a great book about the caricature of a blue collar family man trying to earn a living without selling out his beliefs. I enjoy how the author uses NYC of old as a tool, an obstacle and as a supporting character as an integral part of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo Anne | 10/27/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Sherer | 10/10/2013

    " Brilliant premise, great writing, fascinating character and page-turning story. Fitzhugh should be a household name. I look forward to the long-awaited sequel, "The Exterminators." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve Stresau | 9/24/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracie | 7/26/2013

    " Interesting and different. Reminded me of Carl Hiaasen. I was entertained, though it was a little heavy on the insect details. I will read the next one to see what happens next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Young | 7/21/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Captain Marcus | 5/5/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean | 9/4/2012

    " Five stars because it's absolutely hilarious. If you're reading it in public and strangers hear you bust out laughing, let them know they should also read Pest Control. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 6/21/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 12/30/2011

    " Very fun, quick read. A bug exterminator is mistaken for a professional assassin. Sort of "Being There" meets "Grosse Point Blank." "
