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.

"The prolific and successful Block returns as writer and narrator of another series of yarns about hit man John Keller. Block should not give up his word processor. He's a much better writer than reader. After just a few minutes, his croaky monotone makes you want to shut down the CD for good. But his stories about Keller's adventures are so entertaining in themselves that you plod on. For example, you learn what happens when Keller is hired to kill a millionaire's ferocious dog, which is killing other animals in Central Park. The irony in Block's performance is that once each story is over, Block's voice, in retrospect, doesn't seem all that bad. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
