The fourth thriller in the 'Hit' series, a gripping insight into the life of John Keller, stamp collector, chronic worrier - and assassin... From 'one of crime writing's most accomplished stylists.' - Guardian.
When Keller gets the call to make a hit on a man in Iowa, he's tempted to pass. So far he's been lucky in his chosen profession and he's 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 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.
Block is one of America's finest crime writers and this is a cracking thriller with plenty of surprises, told with great verve and pace. - HUDDERSFIELD DAILY EXAMINER
