Description - Hit Parade by Lawrence Block

Superficially, John Keller - the urban lonely guy of assassins - leads a normal life despite his profession. He has an office manager, the breezily efficient Dot, who organises his 'jobs' and who reassures his grumbling conscience. He is an obsessive stamp collector. In a blackly comic twist, once he even got called for jury service. Laid back, couldn't care less, morally distanced from his vocation, Keller is an intriguing character. A visit to an astrologer tells him, and us, that he is a gentle man who is simply surrounded by violence rather than being a perpetrator of it. His professional satisfaction, we learn, comes from 'solving a problem'. Taking lives causes him no real anxiety. Until Keller's jobs start to go wrong ...
