Publisher's Summary

Keller is a regular guy. He goes to the movies, works on his stamp collection. Call him for jury duty and he serves without complaint. Then every so often, he gets a phone call from White Plains that sends him flying off somewhere to kill a perfect stranger.
Keller is a pro and very good at what he does. But the jobs have started to go wrong. The realization is slow coming, yet when it arrives, it is irrefutable: Someone out there is trying to hit the hit man. Keller, God help him, has found his way onto somebody else's hit list.

I loved this serie but this book was really hard to finish. It felt like the hit man was under therapy and was being analyzed and judged. Not my favorite, waste of credit...

Gallows humour at its best

What did you love best about Hit List?

The dry humour and the dry wit.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The overall plot is less important than the mini-plots as Keller's ingenious plans unfold, while negotiating this dangerous profession.

What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

He perfectly captured Keller's dead-pan dry humour.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just sheer enjoyment, transports you out of your daily humdrum life and keeps you on the edge of your seat rooting for Keller, while also caring about some of the victims (but not too much).

Any additional comments?

Keller's sense of place: I love New York and stories set in New York. I discovered Keller years ago. Being able to enjoy Keller in another medium was such a treat (not always a given). In this case it was a Bull's Eye.
