Baker & Taylor
With only a week to go before Christmas, Eric suddenly has a change of heart towards ridding the building of his rodent guest, but Anje Gabriel, an overly enthusiastic exterminator, is determined to get his job done and so has other plans in mind. Reprint.

Simon and Schuster
He is one weird Christmas visitor -- his hair and moustache an unearthly white-blond, his voice a gruff rumble. He fills the apartment doorway. From two metal cases he produces what a boy would expect from an exterminator: Toxic roach powders and poisonous fog bombs.
But a crossbow?
Eric is fascinated at first. He's been bored this snowbound vacation, and has already zapped about a zillion Zergs. Antsy, he's even sneaked a look at the Christmas presents hidden beneath his parents' bed. Then Anje Gabrail, this exterminator, appears, talking a little madly about his war against rats -- about killing them.
"The worst," Anje says. And if Eric sees one in the Eden Apartments, he is to call Anje's twenty-four-hour cell phone immediately. Later that Monday, the fourth day before Christmas, a rat does appear in the building's basement -- and Eric finds himself suddenly, frighteningly swept into Anje's vengeful army.
As either partner...or victim.
With only a flashlight.
