Hit Parade by Lawrence Block (b)
This book was in MP3 format read by the author. It was well done. I'm just beginning to try audio books and I'm a little dissatisfied with the format. It is easy for me to get distracted while listening to a book and lose my place. Reading an actual book seems much more satisfactory. A bonus for this audio book was listening to the author's voice.
Keller is a professional hit man who kills for money without qualm or conscience. He is also smart and a caring friend, an interesting combination in a human being. There is a lot of humor in this author's writing. I usually shy away from what I consider gruesome topics like murder, but this author is always an enjoyable read.
I'm thinking that after listening to the book, perhaps I will read the actual book soon just to see how that experience compares.
