3. As quoted 'J.P. Keller is a hit man based in Manhattan, but traveling wherever the job pays him to go. Keller is not an ordinary hit man, though. Each town he visits becomes special to him as he daydreams about moving there and creates backgrounds for the people he encounters. Since hit men seem to have quite a lot of free time, Keller becomes interested in stamp collecting, raising a dog and other mundane activities. Block makes his character appear as simple as the man next door—could he be a neighbor? After all, even hit men must live somewhere.'
Hope these are correct...
