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

God Bless You, Robert Forster

I think that this is the first audio book that I've ever given five stars.

If you are a fan of detective fiction or suspense novels, you can purchase this book without worry. Well-written. Nicely paced. Extrememly well read. You'll wish that it was double the length.

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.
