When Keller gets the call to make a hit on a man in Des Moines, he's tempted to pass. So far he's been lucky in his chosen profession, and he's pretty much got enough stashed away to retire. Just one more, he thinks. But he quickly finds that this job might not just mark the end of his career - it could be the end of him, period. After three days in a Des Moines motel room he realises he was never meant to make the hit - he was just supposed to take the fall when a prominent politician was gunned down by someone else. Suddenly he's on the run, all the evidence pointing the cops his way and literally nowhere to go.show more

Review quote

"Keller's plight is expertly handled by Block who manages to inject the hitman with wry warmth - he may be a killer he's a good guy really. Excellent." -- Paul Connolly LONDON LITE "Hard hitting, sharply written and gripping stuff." -- Stuart Kelly SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY "Fans both old and new will be delighted - and yes, even charmed - by the unexpected twists and turns, both domestic and homicidal, that Keller's quixotic quest takes." MYSTERY SCENE "Block's elegant writing is funny, philosophical and full of surprises. As a bonus, in this fourth Keller book, we get to know a lot more about Block's most unknowable protagonist." -- MORNING STAR Mat Cowardshow more
