CWA Judges’ comments: ‘Immoral and highly entertaining, Block makes us root for his hitman anti-hero.’

 

Despite being a hitman Keller is an incredibly likeable character the readers routes for all the way. When Keller decides to take one last job before retiring he soon realises what a huge mistake that was and what a massive set up he has found himself in. Lawrence Block is one of the best crime writers around and we know you will love this latest slice of action.

Hit and Run Synopsis

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.
