    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.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "A Very Different Approach"
    Overall

    Block breaks a ton of rules, especially for the subject matter. And he does it brilliantly. The story isn't so much about an assassin as it is about a man who kills for his day job. It might sound like semantics, but it makes for a very enjoyable change of pace. Sometimes, the author summarizes an action scene, to go into a very detailed internal monologue in Keller's head: he might be thinking of buying a house or taking up a hobby.

    This is the sort of thing any teacher or book on writing will tell you not to do. The thing is, it works beautifully! Really.

    The narrator does the best job for any audiobook I've ever read. I've listened to it twice, and will probably listen to it again. (Unusual for me and audiobooks.)
