Review: The Executor by Jesse Kellerman


After his girlfriend kicked him out, Joseph had to find a new place to stay. After sleeping on several friends couches he decides that it's time to find a place to call home. When he reads a peculiar ad in the newspaper he is taken off guard but also intrigued. The ad says:

CONVERSATIONALIST SOUGHT.
SERIOUS APPLICANTS ONLY.
PLEASE CALL 617-XXX-XXXX BETWEEN SEVEN A.M. AND TWO P.M.
NO SOLICITORS.

Joseph thinks that it must be a joke but makes the phone call anyway. He meets with the older woman, Alma, who placed the ad and ends up making a friend that understands him even on the deepest of levels. When Alma's nephew comes around, Joseph gets territorial and then the downward spiral begins.

I enjoyed this book but I was kind of disappointed with certain parts of it. The first half was really good but it kind of went downhill from there.
