  • Good read Feb 8, 2011
    by John S

    Keller is a killer with style. These short, but connecting stories, help to develope Keller's personality. Makes you want to read more.

  • Another good Block novel Sep 24, 2009
    by JohnCincinnati

    I like all of his books, he writes a compact novel and it's easy to read, particularly on a plane or train.

    Good stuff.

  • Not a traditional hitman novel Jan 24, 2008
    by RandomGuy

    I found this book to be very entertaining. After reading it, I immediately ordered the next two books in the series. It should be pointed out that the book does not follow the typical formulaic approach of most novels. It is more a gathering of short stories linked together. Still, it is an engaging book with the protagonist having to keep all of his quirky thoughts to himself, because of his profession. The moral code he has created for himself (though he would never call it a code) is unconventional by normal standards. He thinks nothing of perfoming his job (killing another person), and never attempts to
    justify his work beyond taking pride in what he does and being professional.
    The violence is often understated and left more to the minds of the reader. The book is quite humorous and can often have you relate or feel sympathetic to a professional killer.
    If you can get past the point that there is no real plot to the book, but mainly about a professional killer, and the life he lives on the job and off, than I would highly recommend reading this book.
