Trying to find a book call Stella? Help!

I read a book over ten years ago in the UK. I think it was called 'Stella.' I thought it was by Ed Mcbain. It is a noir crime thriller about an intellectually / emotionally challenged hit-man who at one point goes undercover to work with a neo-nazi group. I remember that when he is about kill someone, black dots appeared on the body area he would strike. It is set in the USA. The title Stella came from a woman that the main character loves, and who dies of cancer at the end.

I thought it was called Stella and by Ed Mcbain but I can't find the book anywhere. Does anybody know what it is? I'm at a total loss and would very much like to read it again. I suspect now that I have the title wrong, or that it was a UK only title. I got the impression the writer was American.
