    In this brand-new novella, Keller, everyone's favorite assassin for hire, is Chicago-bound on Amtrak's City of New Orleans, ready to do what he does best. But it's complicated. Usually there's someone ready to point him toward the target. Or he'll have a photo, say. Or, bare minimum, a name and address. Not this time. When he gets to Baker's Bluff, Illinois, he'll have to play private detective before he can get down to business. Well, okay. He knows how it works. So before he even packs his suitcase, Keller buys a fedora.

    Harvey Christopher is a successful man. After 12 years on Madison Avenue, he owns a suburban palace complete with electric oven, electric icebox, and an electric wife - all of them highly functional but completely unresponsive to his needs. A brush with a college-flame-turned-successful-streetwalker sends him down memory lane - a road that leads straight to her bedroom. She gives him a tumble on the house, and then offers a proposition: a bit of criminal mischief that will take him far from suburbia, and far from his wife - because every ad-man deserves a vacation.

Now, a few days later, the killers themselves have turned up dead behind the locked door of a Brooklyn hellhole - one apparently slain by his partner in crime, who then took his own life. There's something drawing Matthew Scudder to this case that the cops have quickly and eagerly closed.
