Publisher's Summary

Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis. Between contracts, he learns a few crucial truths about himself and the ways of the world he's become detached from, and winds up a wiser - if not better - man.


Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: After hearing Robert Forster's narration, it would be hard to imagine anyone else playing Keller, the contract killer suffering a mid-life crisis. Forster manages to elicit empathy for a cold-blooded murderer, while perfectly capturing the wry wit of Lawrence Block's writing. —Steve Feldberg

Surprisingly Terrific

Was sorry to see this one end. How the author wrote such a delightful story of a 'Hit Man' is amazing, but you will love this gentle character. Fast paced, filled with humor and pathos. A really great book.

A perfect marriage of the written and spoken word. Robert Forster's narration adds a new dimension to the characters that make up the ordinary life of "Hit Man", making the wry wit of Lawrence Block even more enjoyable.
Different from Block's Matt Scudder series or "The Burglar" books, this is nevertheless a true Block gem.
