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

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.

    "Don't Bother"

    This one is a complete bore and goes nowhere.

    "Didn't even warrant finishing."

    I have only put down a couple of books in my life before finishing. This was one of them. I gave it a good shot, kept listening to see if it would improve and it just didn't. I was hoping for some interesting or inventive kills, a plot, something to warrant further listening. But it just wasn't there. Honestly one of the worst books I have every tried. I would recommend skipping this book.

    "Couldn't make it through this one"

    very dull. I feel as if I wasted a lot of time waiting for this audio to get better, finally gave up after two days.

    "Hit, Hit and more Hits"

    Take heed of this title and be forewarned. The main character is a hit man. I don't know what I was thinking when I bought this one! I am too easily influenced by the ratings and this one was over rated by far.
