Hit Me

Keller, a former hitman who last appeared in Lawrence Block’s “Hit and Run,” is now married with a small daughter and living in New Orleans. In Block’s latest novel, “Hit Me,” Keller has gone straight, and he and a partner are rehabbing property, but jobs have dried up in the construction business. When Dot, a former associate from his crime days, calls him up to offer him his old job back, Keller agrees to take on just one more client. Fans of Keller (myself included) are happy to see him return.
