The Professional Man*
by David Goodis
This is my first David Goodis story, and is it a doozie! It was televised as an episode of Showtime's series Fallen Angels. I have not seen the teleplay.
Freddy Lamb is an elevator operator by day and a hit man by night. In the story we follow him for one evening when things changed for Freddy.
