For each of the detectives at the agency, a betrayal becomes not only the driving force behind an investigation, but the source of the kind of resolve that cannot be derailed by threats. For Nameless, trying to find out who is gaslighting an old woman only exposes the ugly side of family.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Sullivan, a veteran of more than a dozen Nameless titles, keeps it straight for listeners. He also plays to the humanist side of the characters as they pursue the perps of relatively low-violence crimes.”

    AudioFile

  • “Sullivan delivers a polished, unobtrusive performance and transitions smoothly among the characters. Recommended.”

    Library Journal

  • “Pronzini has taken to giving readers three cases per novel, one involving each of the agency’s three principals. And, as always, each case reveals a little more of each character, which at this stage of the series—more than 30 novels plus short stories—is the greatest pleasure of all.” 

    Booklist

  • “Solid as ever, with funny, ballsy Tamara continuing to buff her role as designated scene-stealer.”

    Kirkus

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/9/2014

    " Another good solid mystery from Bill Pronzoni. As in the last one, there are three separate mysteries going on, all having to do with a betrayal of some sort. One has to do with vandalism of an elderly women's home, another has to do with a bail jumper and the third involves a shady charity scheme. "

    " Not one of his better books. I usually like his work, but this one is just so-so. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trish | 12/18/2013

    " This was ok but not as good as the other books in the Nameless series. I felt that three different detectives working three cases plus a personal one had too many characters. I needed a scorecard to keep up with everything. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 12/9/2013

    " This is the latest book in the consistently good Nameless Detective Series by San Francisco author Bill Pronzini. Most of the books take place in San Francisco or the Bay Area. Fun, entertaining, and a great throw-back to the pulps. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 12/7/2013

    " It's 3 short stories, kind of intertwining or more side by side. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toni | 11/17/2013

    " I'm about halfway through and I am loving this book! I am a big fan of the nameless detective series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeri | 11/16/2013

    " I was anxious to find out the result of Tamara's unhappy romance from Schemers. The wrap-up of that was rushed and anticlimactic. The rest of the book was disjointed . Not his best effort, but I will be back for more with the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al | 9/22/2013

    " Good but not as good as some of his other books. "

    " I've been reading Bill Pronzini's Nameless mysteries from the beginning and they never fail to entertain. Lean and fast moving, they also benefit from continually evolving main characters. These are good reads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 12/5/2011

    " The three detectives in the agency work on three different cases at the beginning of the novel. A fourth investigation develops in the middle of the book. All of the stories are interesting and showcase private detective work. Enjoyable book. "

    " Separate stories with the chapters rotating among the owner and staff as each sets out to expose a betrayal. Some personal, some business, all interesting. "
