    Keller is an assassin - he is paid by the job and works for a mysterious man who nominates hits and passes on commissions from elsewhere. Keller goes in, does the job, gets out: usually at a few hours' notice. Often Keller's work takes him out of New York to other cities, to pretty provincial towns that almost tempt him into moving to the woods and the lakeshores ...Almost, but not quite. But then a job goes wrong in a way Keller has never imagined and it leaves him with a big problem. Finding himself with an orphan on his ... Show more

Good read

by John S on Feb 8, 2011

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

by JohnCincinnati on Sep 24, 2009

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

by RandomGuy on Jan 24, 2008

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.
