Hes cool. Reliable. A real pro: the hit mans hit man. The inconvenient wife, the aging sports star, the business partner, the retiree with a substantial legacy. Hes taken care of them all, quietly and efficiently.Kellers got a code of honor, though hed never call it that. And he keeps the job strictly business.

Sometimes I think about stuff like that, but as far as working it all out in my mind, well, I never seem to get anywhere.But while Keller might be a pragmatic and crack assassin, hes also prone to doubts and loneliness just like everybody else.

There was a psychotherapist once. A dog. Even a woman. And though hes got Dot, his wisecracking contact and sometimes confidante, and his precious stamp collection, these days, it doesnt seem to be enough.Kellers been at this business a long while. Just maybe its time to pack it in and find a nice little house in the desert.

Only problem is, retirement takes money. And to get money, hes got to go to work. . . .Hit Parade, the third novel featuring the fascinating Keller, displays the hallmarks that distinguish Lawrence Blocks award-winning fiction: the intelligence, the clever plotting, the humor, the tricky twists and ironic turns, the darkness and emotional complexity -- and, above all else, the humanity.
