I can see why some people were turned off by the many digressions, such as Keller's obsessions with stamp collecting, or several chapters where he reports to jury duty, or frustrating assignments where intended victims keep dying of natural causes before Keller can complete the job. These vignettes never really tie into the main story, but they are entertaining diversions that allow you to immerse yourself into Keller's view of the world.
I could have given this book 5 stars, but my only small complaint is that the rapport between Keller and his handler Dot was at times slightly inane and forced (but at other times also very funny).
But as always, Lawrence Block is very good at mixing wit and drama, and creating memorable characters.
