I didn't think I would finish this one at first, but Keller grows on you. The [b:Hit Man|380563|Hit Man (Keller, #1)|Lawrence Block|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348425989s/380563.jpg|1062586] is a collection of vignettes involving Keller's targets and how he plans to accomplish each mission. The stories are tied together with Keller's attempts to fill a lonely existence between jobs. Good beach read. Already have the sequel.
