The Killers by Ernest Hemingway

The Killers is the story of two hit men, Max and Al, who walk into a diner one day during Prohibition in Chicago. The eponymous killers state their intention to murder the boxer Ole Andreson, but he never appears at the diner where they have been led to believe he frequently eats. Max and Al depart and the diner's patrons run to warn Ole Andreson, who shows no real concern.
