Keller, the quintessential assassin and hero of Hit Man returns to continue his work, but he soon discovers that he has become the quarry and that a mysterious enemy has put out a contract on him.

From the Publisher:

Keller is a regular guy. He goes to the movies, works on his stamp collection. Call him for jury duty and he serves without complaint. Then every so often he gets a phone call from White Plains that sends him flying off somewhere to kill a perfect stranger. Keller is a pro and very good at what he does. But the jobs have started to go wrong. The realization is slow coming yet, when it arrives, it is irrefutable: Someone out there is trying to hit the hit man. Keller, God help him, has found his way onto somebody else's hit list.

Annotation:
Lawrence Block brings back Keller, the amoral but likable assassin who is also the protagonist of Block's earlier novel HIT MAN. In HIT LIST, Keller travels to Louisville, Kentucky to carry out a routine job (murdering a businessman and making it look like a suicide), but he soon realizes that his own life is in danger. The tables have been turned on this killer-for-hire, and now Keller has to find out who has put a price on his head, and why.
Author Bio
Lawrence Block
Lawrence Block began writing at an early age, and published his first book--a softcore sex novel--at the age of 19 while still a student at Antioch College. Block moved on to much greater achievements with mysteries featuring such sleuths as the spy, Evan Tanner, who can't sleep after an accident destroyed part of his brain, detective Bernie Rhodenbarr, and ex-cop Matt Scudder. He showed his darker side in a series of novels published under the pseudonym Paul Kavanaugh, and
demonstrated his versatility with noir thrillers like "Such Men Are Dangerous" (1969). He has won two Shamus Awards, two Edgar Awards, and a Nero Wolfe Award.

Lawrence Block is a highly respected mystery novel author. In addition, he has served as a fiction-writing instructor, leading a seminar and writing several books of advice and a steady column in Writer's Digest on the subject. He himself began writing at an early age, and, using a pseudonym, published his first book--a soft porn novel--while he was still a college student. In 1961, Block used his own name to write his first mystery novel, DEATH PULLS A DOUBLE CROSS. He is probably best known for three characters, each with his own series: the spy Evan Tanner, who can't sleep after an accident destroyed part of his brain, gentleman burglar/amateur sleuth Bernie Rhodenbarr, and troubled ex-cop Matt Scudder. He showed his darker side in a series of novels published under the name Paul Kavanaugh, and demonstrated his versatility with noir thrillers like SUCH MEN ARE DANGEROUS (1969). Block was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, and is only the third American to have received a Cartier Diamond Dagger Award from the British Crime Writers' Association. In addition, he has won two Shamus Awards, two Edgar Awards, and a Nero Wolfe Award.

Praise

Washington Post Book World
"Does Block succeed in making a deadly sociopath great fun to hang around with for a couple of hours? I'm afraid so....It is Keller's droll commentary on the passing American scene that accounts for much of his highly unlikely appeal." - Richard Lipez 11/26/2000

New York Times Book Review
"Keller's prickly exchanges with Dot are a treat, and his ruminations on life, love, art and saloon decor are delivered with the wry self-knowledge of a man who isn't ashamed to hang a Hopper print on his wall." - Marilyn Stasio 12/15/2000

Guardian (London)
"Veteran Lawrence Block seldom disappoints, and HITLIST is another pleaser..." 11/25/2001
