The New York Times best-selling author and master of the modern mystery returns with a fierce and poignant new novel featuring his acclaimed killer-for-hire, Keller. John Keller is everyone's favorite hit man. He's cool. Reliable. A real pro: the hit man's hit man. The inconvenient wife, the business partner, the retiree with a substantial legacy. He's taken care of them all, quietly and efficiently.

Keller's got a code of honor, though he'd never call it that. And he keeps the job strictly business. But while Keller might be a pragmatic and crack assassin, he's also prone to doubts and loneliness just like everybody else. And though he's got Dot, his wisecracking contact and sometimes confidante, these days, it doesn't seem to be enough.

Keller's been at this business a long while. Just maybe it's time to pack it in. Only problem is, retirement takes money. And to get money, he's got to go to work....

Hit Parade, the third novel featuring the fascinating Keller, displays the hallmarks that distinguish Lawrence Block's award-winning fiction: the intelligence, the clever plotting, the humor, the tricky twist and ironic turns, the darkness and emotional complexity, and, above all else, the humanity.

    " Read half of it, bit it still hadn't gone anywhere or developed anything, so I stopped wasting my time. "

    " Very disappointing. Not really a book at all read like a bunch of vignettes that had been tucked away and there was a decision to string them all together with very little effort to create a cohesive story. I'm surprised Block let it go out. "

    " A series of slightly connected short stories involving Keller, Block's professional hit-man who is just like you and me except that he earns his living killing people. The amiable relationship between Keller and his agent Dot wears a little thin for me, although their interplay has some of the fun of the "Burglar Who..." series. What's interesting about these stories is watching how many variations Block can devise on the same plot--Keller is hired to kill somebody, and (usually) does. Block is like Mozart when it comes to variations--he seems endlessly and effortlessly inventive, and almost always entertaining. "

    " Difficult to imagine enjoying a book about a sociopathic hit man who has a conscience, but I did. Clever touches abound. Keller, the killer for hire, frets about things that even normal (?) people do. It's a good read. "
