Hit and Run by Lawrence Block
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Keller goes to Des Moines on his last job and winds up getting framed for murdering the governor. Meanwhile, Dot's house in White Plains is torched, Dot's body found in the wreckage, and Keller is suddenly cut off from all help he could have gotten. Can Keller survive on the run long enough to find out who set him up?
Unlike the previous books in the Keller series, this one is more like a conventional novel rather than a lot of related episodes. The desperation and panic is a tangible thing. Keller assuming a new identity and a new life was good but you knew something would show up to turn it upside down. The ending was great since I was left hoping things weren't as they seemed in the beginning. While I love Keller, I hope Block doesn't write another Keller book. This one left things at a good stopping point.
To sum up, Hit and Run is a great read and a great ending to the Keller saga.
