    crazybatcow: Very similar main characters: just regular guys with irregular jobs trying to make a living. Keller's stories don't have the legal system component however.

A rising analyst in the Justice Department, Elizabeth Waring, finds an improbable link between the death by dynamite of a union representative and the deadly heart attack of a U.S. Senator from Colorado. As it turns out, both were killed by an assassin working for the Mafia, who seeks retribution when they try to kill him too. Fast paced and Perry won a prestigious award for this, his first novel.

Mafia hit man The Butcher's boy kills a senior Senator from Colorado. His troubles start when he travels to Las Vegas to collect his $200,000 fee. Now it seems he's become a liability and he becomes the pursued. Other hired killers are sent after The Butcher Boy but none prove to be successful. Will he find out who hired him and who wants him dead. A great first thriller from Thomas Perry. ( )

All over the place. Is it about the hit man, is it about the Justice Dept analyst? The author certainly didn't know. Short enough to read, but I'm downgrading it as I write this. And here I am reading his next book ... . ( )

Outstanding! Never really knew what was coming next. ( )

For some reason, I'd never read this first Thomas Perry book. What a delight it was to read it now. Perry has such a fine hand with plot detail. Just the littlest pieces come together so beautifully. In Butcher Boy, you know the paid assassin and you know him well. You have no idea who paid him and neither does he. You also know Elizabeth Waring, a rookie FBI agent almost accidentally on her first case which she builds from the minutest details. The stories - Elizabeth's and the assassin's - run along parallel lines building to a remarkable ending. Perry is a master story teller. ( )
