You can tell from the moment the protagonist learns of the assassination what is going to happen. And then it predictably happens. OK, his shacking up with some random lady from New Orleans is unexpected but everything else falls in line. ( )

If you used a cell phone, they could pinpoint the location of it when you made the call. They kept building better mousetraps, and the mice had to be correspondingly more resourceful. Lately, whenever he had a job, he would buy two prepaid cell phones for cash from a store on West Twenty- third Street, making up a name and address for their records. He'd give one to Dot and keep the other for himself, and the only calls either would make were to each other. He'd called a few days ago, to report his arrival in Des Moines, and he'd called earlier that morning to say that they'd told him to wait at least one more day, although he could have hit the guy and been on his way home by now.

Keller gets framed. Keller gets away. Keller gets even. This entire book was so unnecessary that it became super fun. I felt like Block is having a ball here. ( )

This is the 4th book in the author's Keller series. Keller is a hit man for hire, but very different than what you might normally run across. The first three books were short stories loosely put together as novels and as a result there was a lot of repetition and things didn't always flow so well. Nevertheless I liked the preceding books. This book is the first that feels written as a novel. We get to dive deeper into character without it being repeated which is really nice. I thought we were going to have the first "great" Keller novel but one thing in the story pretty much killed that thought. Keller's partner 'Dot' does something really disturbing and disgusting. I won't say more except that the event almost spoiled the book for me. Still I liked it more than not and think this was the best Keller book yet. I was also pretty happy with how it ended. The series could have, maybe should have ended here with this 2008 book but one more came out, "Hit Me" in 2013 which I think I will read soon. Then I think we'll be done. ( )

I don't know why Lawrence Block didn't just take the time to pad out some more of the many Keller short stories into full novels like this, they read much better. I love the stamp-collecting hitman and the way Block writes him in any form, but there's no real character development in the shorter instalments and a lot of repetition.

Keller is framed for the murder of a politician and has to go on the run, cutting all ties - or having them cut for him - with his old life. Mourning the loss of his stamp collection and tormented by the fate of his only friend, Dot, the future looks increasingly bleak - until fate, in the form of a New Orleans teacher nursing her dying father, steps in. Keller adopts an alias and trades one practical profession for another, happy with his new life, but still has one or two loose ends to tie up first.

This story could stand alone, in my opinion - Block refers back to a lot of the short stories anyway, so reading the first and fourth books would probably be enough to get the gist of the series. Entertaining, well-paced, funny and even sad in places, Keller scores a bulls-eye with this one. ( )
