Keller’s Therapy

kellers_therapyKeller’s Therapy‘ is a fairly interesting new addition to a short story series by Lawrence Block, and published by Mr Block via Amazon‘s KDP service.

That’s right, this is an ordinary indie review … of the man who brought us the grand adventures of one Bernie Rhodenbarr.

The Keller stories, I’ll be honest, I’ve never tried to get into until this one.  I picked it up on Amazon when I stumbled across the fact that it was on sale (no longer as of this writing, sorry).

It could use slightly better editing — the grammar and punctuation looks fine, but there’re occasional missing words.  Also, the cover is odd — it’s not about dogs.

The story is only 32 pages, so I’m not sure I can sum it up very well.  I suppose a few basics would suffice.  The stories are about one J. P. Keller, a professional hit man.  This particular one is about Keller’s sessions with a psychotherapist.

It’s simply a very engrossing tale.  Hard to put down, easy to finish:  an all-round fantastic read.  I will say, it’s drier and less fun than the Bernie’s, so if you know Block for them and are looking for more of the same you might be disappointed, if you simply are enamoured with Block’s overall style you’ll certainly dig it.
