Keller is a killer. Professional, cool, confident, competent, reliable.

The consummate pro. The hit man's hit man.

But he is a complex person: understandably guarded and reclusive, icy and ruthlessly efficient, he is also prone to loneliness, self-doubt, and career worries. Indeed, he is going through a full-fledged mid-life crisis. Keller may be a crack assassin, but he is also an all-too-human being.

As Keller goes about his rounds, fulfilling his contracts, he learns a few crucial truths about himself and the ways of the normal world and winds up a wiser (if not a better) man.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Being on the road can be so lonely. Keller really just wants to settle down in a nice little town. Get a dog. Collect stamps. But being a hit man is a job that is really hard to retire from.

Another likable assassin from Block in a nice series of short stories. I wish we could have met the Old Man, it would be nice to know how to set up a cottage industry like Murder Inc.
