David Virden’s case is simple enough: Namless must find his ex-wife and deliver some papers to her. But she refuses the papers, sends a message to Virden to never contact her again, and slams the door. His colleague, Tamara, tells Nameless that Virden threatens to sue, stops payment on his checks, and claims that the woman they located isn’t his wife. Then he disappears and his fiancée hires Nameless to find out why. Clearly, someone is trying to make Nameless the monkey in the middle. Then things take a decidedly more deadly turn…

    " Another good read for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonelle | 1/8/2014

    " Part of the Nameless detective series, a quick read from one of my favorite mystery authors, Bill Pronzini. Interestingly, like many of my other favorite characters, Nameless is aging right into retirement...Guess I've been reading this series for 20-plus years now! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 1/5/2014

    " Same old, same old, but I like all the characters, and if Nameless is getting more didactic - well - his politics are my politics, so I don't really care. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 12/29/2013

    " A quick read, always enjoyable, the Nameless Detective is a reliable companion for hurricanes and other natural disasters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanna | 12/27/2013

    " Wow, another powerful and creepy story from Bill Pronzini! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith C | 12/25/2013

    " Quick read, nicely wrapped up two story lines at the end. I'm a sucker for a quick and easy mystery. I'm sure I've read some of these before but I can't discern one from the next. The older detectives are a nice change for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harvey | 12/19/2013

    " Good stories, well told by a Grand Master. The latest few in series have done a good job incorporating other regular characters (e.g. operatives at the detective agency). I probably shouldn't complain but...these are starting to feel a little "formula"/same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 11/13/2013

    " Good. Average read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 10/29/2013

    " I need to keep Pronzini in my radar he's very prolific and an excellent writer and story teller. Camouflage is an excellent fast paced novel with good, even though predictable plot twists excellent reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 7/28/2013

    " This is really a 2.5 stars for me. I've long enjoyed this series so I rounded up. I feel there were a couple of weak plot points in this one. Things we're asked to believe that don't quite ring true. But I still enjoyed the book and it's a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy S | 7/2/2013

    " Two separate story lines, both featuring people who are using some sort of "camouflage". Excellent mystery with some neat twists. As always, the familiar characters (nameless detective, Jake Runyon, Tamara)keep the interest and involvement of the reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al Stoess | 1/23/2013

    " Another good yearn by Bill Pronzani. "

    " love the double plot story. Keeps you turning the pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Levine | 12/9/2011

    " One of the few left-leaning liberal(politics)detectives.Two threads that aren't actually connected except by proximity.Non-the-less interesting light reading with action and believable detective procedures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Metagion | 7/4/2011

    " I liked the book immensely, but it dealt with the difficult topic of child abuse, which is always tough to read. All in all, a great book in the series :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LeAnn | 6/11/2011

    " This is the first book by Bill Pronzini that I have read and look forward to reading more of his books. Camouflage was overall a great detective story. "
