9780060840891: Hit Parade

New York hit man Keller is a law unto himself, and when a situation goes awry - which despite his best-laid plans it so often does - he makes some surprising judgement calls to provide a twist in the tale.

It's not all drudgery in the life of an assassin. Keller's jobs allow him access to all sorts of sporting events - following a baseball team round the country, providing the insurance for a fixed horse race, attending a basketball game in Indiana and playing golf in Arizona. He even gets to mix his passion for stamp-collecting with a hit on a famous philatelist.

Wisely, Keller always travels for his work. New York is home, and he doesn't want to mess on his own doorstep. But the jobs are drying up, and he needs money. So he breaks the rule - and regrets it. His cover is at risk - he is even followed home - and Keller has to use all his remarkable skill to make sure he can continue doing what he does best.

Book Description HarperTorch, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 170 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Keller is friendly. Industrious. A bit lonely, sometimes. If it wasn t for the fact that he kills people for a living, he d be just your average Joe. The inconvenient wife, the troublesome sports star, the greedy business partner, the vicious dog, he ll take care of them all, quietly and efficiently. If the price is right. Like the rest of us, Keller s starting to worry about his retirement. After all, he s not getting any younger. (His victims, on the other hand, aren t getting any older.) So he contacts his booking agent, Dot, up in White Plains, and tells her to keep the hits coming. He ll take any job, anywhere. His nest egg needs fattening up. Of course, being less choosy means taking greater risks--and that could buy Keller some big trouble. Then again, in this game, there are plenty of opportunities for some inventive improvisation . . . and a determined self-motivator can make a killing. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780060840891
