Summary

Summary

So what if Nameless can’t get his girlfriend, Kerry, to marry him? So what if he can’t talk his partner, Eberhardt, out of his bitter funk? Skies are sunny, and the Nameless Detective wants them to stay that way. So he decides to do an old man a favor and find his missing granddaughter, Gianna. 

But no one said it would be easy. It seems Gianna’s roommate is turning tricks, and Nameless’ search quickly leads him to a pimp, a murder, and into a dark pit of human perversion—the kind of place where people die. What happen to Gianna Fornessi? Ask Nameless: he’s the one gripping his .38 and writing epitaphs in his head …

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pronzini has made the dogged, blinkered existence of a detective his exclusive domain in this relentlessly grim yet thoroughly absorbing series.” Publishers Weekly
“Bill Pronzini's Nameless Detective seems inspired by Hammett's Continental Op, a fellow San Franciscan, though far less cynical and many pounds lighter.” AudioFile
“Nameless is a wonderfully realized, evolving protagonist. His adventures don’t get any better than this--at least until the next one.” Booklist
“Exquisitely rendered—from the disillusioned goombah to the despairing Nameless, at a loss as to how to keep his partner Eberhardt from calling it quits (he can't).” Kirkus Reviews

Author Bio: Bill Pronzini

Bill Pronzini has been nominated for or won every prize offered to crime fiction writers, including the 2008 Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America. It is no wonder, then, that Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine said of him: “Complexity of characterization, puzzle, and theme support the case for Pronzini as the finest American detective novelist in current practice.” He lives and writes in California with his wife, the crime novelist Marcia Muller.
