In this brand-new novella, Keller, everyone's favorite assassin for hire, is Chicago-bound on Amtrak's City of New Orleans, ready to do what he does best. But it's complicated. Usually there's someone ready to point him toward the target. Or he'll have a photo, say. Or, bare minimum, a name and address.
Not this time. When he gets to Baker's Bluff, Illinois, he'll have to play private detective before he can get down to business. Well, okay. He knows how it works. So before he boards his train, before he even packs his suitcase, Keller buys a fedora.
Keller, a faithful husband, doting father, and dedicated philatelist, has become a guilty pleasure for an increasing number of listeners. They don't think they should like the guy - but they just can't help themselves.

Master storyteller in word and voice.
How lovely to once again hear Lawrence Block read, beautifully, his own work! Unmissable and very enjoyable. Maybe I'll listen to it again, maybe a couple of times, just to be absolutely sure .......
Absorbing characterisations, tightly-plotted storyline, never predictable, always gripping.
I had already read 'Keller's Fedora' on Kindle, but when I heard the author had done his own narration I couldn't resist! Although there are other excellent author-approved narrations of Lawrence Block novels and short stories (Scudder, Rhodenbarr, Ehrengraf) it's always a joy to hear this author read his own work. Highly-recommended - and if this is your first Block/Keller experience you're in for a treat!
Moral dilemma? What moral dilemma? Oh. Right.
Now I want to re-read all the Keller novels again. And listen to them. And the Rhodenbarrs. And the Ehrengrafs.
