    Hit Man Gets Hit

    John Keller is a great character and following him as he tries to get out of this mess makes for great reading. A masterful plot.

    Fans will enjoy this strong thriller

    Hit man John Keller is in Des Moines on what he had decided will be his last job he does not need the money so he figures it is time to retire. With his tongs and the Scott¿s stamp catalogue with him, John inspects a Norway Posthorn issue he needs for his collection and discusses Sweden with the dealer. However, while they negotiate, CNN shows the assassination of charismatic Ohio Governor Longford killed in Iowa.------------ Suddenly the country is looking for Keller. He flees Iowa heading for his apartment in New York City and to his assistant in White Plains. When he arrives in Manhattan, he finds his stamp collection stolen and the real killer stalking him to silence him permanently. Keller travels to New Orleans where he rescues Julia Roussard from a rapist. They are attracted to one another, but John knows he must first prove his innocence and take out the guy who framed him, or spend his remaining life on the run.---------- This is an exhilarating Hit Man thriller as Keller becomes the target of law enforcement when he is set up to take the fall of a high visible political assassination. The story line is fast-paced but filled with humor as Keller had been thinking retirement, but has a personal clean up to take care of. Fans will enjoy this strong thriller as the heat is on Keller.------ Harriet Klausner

    A Hitman with a heart AND a sense of humor!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------- Review Hit and Run - by Lawrence Block On the personal side - after reading Hit and Run and this being my first ever encounter with this particular author, I just want to tell you that I will be buying, begging, borrowing or stealing as many of this authors books as I can get my grubby little paws on. Especially the ones that feature Hit and runs protagonist - Keller. There are 4 novels altogether in this series and I sincerely hope that Hit and Run won't be the last. The books include Hit Man (the 1st), Hit List (2cd), Hit Parade (3rd) and lastly the one I'm currently reviewing, Hit and Run.. The protagonist is a stamp collecting hit man named Keller and as this novel opens, we see him hard at work trying to decide if he wants to add a series of Swedish stamp reprints to his collection. At the conclusion of his transaction we learn that the Governor of Ohio has just been assassinated while in Iowa. What a coincidence, the hit that Keller was contracted to do was in, you guessed it - Iowa! Has Keller been lured to do a particular hit for a nefarious reason beyond the usual? The plot starts to thicken quite quickly and moves along at a pleasant pace, while Keller learns more about the double deal dealt to him with the help of his long time friend and assistant Dot. Keller soon figures out that he must run for his life, if not, for his precious stamp collection. His journey across America to what he thinks of as salvation in the form of his NY city apartment, is amusing and introspective as well as slightly harrowing at times. The last half of the book is surprisingly and also thoroughly enjoyable, when he takes refuge in New Orleans and finds himself a new 'Friend' and a new and gentler life style. This was a wonderful read, and Lawrence Block does a wonderful job of teaching us that all is not what it always seems like on the outside. I would have not thought that I could enjoy a book about a hit man, but Mr Block has proved that he can breech my biases. Thank you Lawrence Block.

    Say it isn't so...

    I have two favorite assassins, and this book is about one of them, Keller. Block is a master of the mystery genre, and the ¿Hit¿ series featuring Keller, is great. Framed for a high-profile murder he didn¿t commit Keller goes on the run to save is life. He has $200.00 in his pocket and has to get from Iowa to NYC without being found. It¿s a wild ride, and Keller ends up re-inventing himself, new name, new occupation, new location, and a new life. This may be the end of Keller, say it isn¿t so, Mr. Block, say it isn¿t so. The other books in this series are Hit Man, Hit List and Hit Parade.
