    john Keller First Cropped Up In playboy, Where Most Of His Exploits Were Chronicled In Lawrence Block's Short Stories. In This Book, Keller Travels The Country Knocking Off People He's Paid To Knock Off, And Occasionally Makes Stops Along The Way To Do Some Shopping Or To Look For Stamps To Add To His Collection. And He's Always Checking In With And Talking To Dot, The Woman Who Is His Job Broker. This Is The First True Keller Novel—last Year's hit Man Was In Fact A Collection Of The Short Stories In Which Keller Appeared. The Longer Form Should Allow Block To Stretch And Develop Keller More, But What He Does Instead Is Give Us More Of The Same. Much More. If I Never Read About Stamps Again, Or Have To Read Through Another Scene Where There's A Pitcher Of Tea To Get Through While Characters Talk It Empty, I'll Be Just Fine. What Dot And Keller Figure Out Is That A Hired Assassin Is Out There Killing His Colleagues, Eliminating The Competition And Raising The Price. They Attempt To Trap The Killer—whom They Call, Affectionately, Roger, Though They Have No Idea Who He Really Is. In The Meantime, Keller Does Get Involved With A Woman, Has His Fortune Told And Spends A Lot Of Time Serving Jury Duty. I Loved Reading The Book But Was Irritated With Its Many Tangents—it Often Felt Like A Short Story That Couldn't Figure Out How To Stop Itself.
