Keller is a regular guy, a solid citizen. He goes to the movies, watches the tube, browses the art galleries, and works diligently on his stamp collection. But every now and then a call from the breezily efficient Dot up in White Plains sends him off to kill a total stranger. He takes a plane, rents a car, finds a hotel room, and gets back before the body is cold.

He’s a real pro: cool and dispassionate and very good at what he does—until one day when Dot breaks her own rule and books him for a hit in New York, his home base. She sends him to an art gallery opening, and the girl he gets lucky with steers him to an astrologer. He’s a Gemini, his moon’s in Taurus—and he’s got a murderer’s thumb.

Then the jobs start to go wrong. Targets die before he can draw a bead on them. The realization is slow in coming, but there’s no getting around it: somebody out there is trying to hit the hit man. Keller, God help him, has found his way onto somebody else’s hit list.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Hit List is an astonishing book; beautifully written, as deeply enjoyable as it is fundamentally upsetting.” 

    London Independent (UK)

  • “There is no doubt that while its hero may be morally reprehensible, Hit List combines substance, style, and wit.”

    Orlando Sentinel

  • “Quite entertaining…Block’s strength has always been the manner in which he makes his characters talk…In [Hit List] he is at his best.” 

    Irish Times

  • “Listen for the equally ironic but maddeningly meandering conversations between Keller and Dot…These conversations, which seem such blather, are blather whose interplay of banality and olympian judgment, as in James M. Cain and Quentin Tarantino, forms the real heart of this modern samurai fable.” 

    Kirkus Reviews
