Keller's a hit man. For years now he's had places to go and people to kill.

But enough is enough. He's got money in the bank and just one last job standing between him and retirement. So he carries it out with his usual professionalism, and he heads home, and guess what?

One more job. Paid in advance, so what's he going to do? Give the money back?In Des Moines, Keller stalks his designated target and waits for the client to give him the go-ahead. And one fine morning he's picking out stamps for his collection (Sweden 1-5, the official reprints) at a shop in Urbandale when somebody guns down the charismatic governor of Ohio.

Back at his motel, Keller's watching TV when they show the killer's face. And there's something all too familiar about that face. . . .

Keller calls his associate Dot in White Plains, but there is no answer. He's stranded halfway across the country, every cop in America's just seen his picture, his ID and credit cards are no longer good, and he just spent almost all of his cash on the stamps.

Now what?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Block’s trademark blend of humor and violence is a good fit for the deadpan Keller…One of the crime genre’s most unusual antiheroes.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The wry observations throughout, uttered by Keller as well as the other two main characters, will keep you smiling until your cheeks hurt.”

    New York Sun

  • “A knockout…Block delivers a one-two punch of humor and introspection.”

    Boston Herald

  • “One of the best novels of the summer season. Block remains a true master of the crime genre.”

    Chicago Sun-Times

  • “If there is one crime writer currently capable of matching the noirish legacies of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, it’s Lawrence Block.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “With Lawrence Block, one of the most prolific mystery writers alive, it’s always been plotting, and a clever ear for dialogue, that illuminates the inner regions of his characters’ souls.”

    Philadelphia Inquirer 

  • “As entertaining as we’ve come to expect from Block’s books.”

    Charlotte Observer

  • “Brisk, suspenseful, and funny.”

    Library Journal
