A masterful, inventive thriller from a remarkably assured and always surprising young writer.

Perpetual graduate student Joseph Geist is at his wit's end. Recently kicked out of their shared apartment by his girlfriend, he's left with little more than a half bust of Nietzsche's head and the realization that he's homeless and unemployed. He's hit a dead end on his dissertation; his funding has been cut off. He doesn't even have a phone. Desperate for some source of income, he searches the local newspaper and finds a curious ad:


And so Joseph meets Alma Spielman: a woman who, with her old-world ways and razor-sharp mind, is his intellectual soul mate. How is he to know that what seems to be the best decision of his life is the one that seals his fate? Download and start listening now!

    " A bit of a disappointment really. The plot took a long time to unfold and was totally unrealistic. A series of hard-to-believe events lead the main character to murder and prison and the story finishes quite unsatisfactorily. "

    " Probably more towards 3.5 stars. Not what I expected. More of a moral story than anything else. "

    " The Executor by Jesse Kellerman was a good book. But a little slow for me. There were parts that did keep you wanting to read and kept your interest to the end. Overall an ok book. "

    " This book took a long time to grab my attention, I could only read it little bits at a time. Then after a couple hundred pages it began to get interesting. The author was moving from character development into the actual mystery/ thriller part, when the writing style changed. It threw off the building suspense for a bit, then reverted back. Overall it was not an easy read, which was most likely due to the fact I didn't care for the main character at all. "
