Twenty-three of Shamus Award-winning author Bill Pronzini's stories, all of which display his versatility, his clean, crisp narrative style, and his keen awareness of detail. These tales, including three that feature his well-known series chararacter, the Nameless Detective, run the gamut from psychological suspense (Strangers in the Fog) to satire (A Craving for Originality) to Western gothic (The Hanging Man and His Name was Legion).
Of special note, Proof of Guilt is a dandy murder-in-a-locked-room puzzle; Multiples (written with Barry N. Malzberg) is an intriguing literary exercise about a man who can't decide whether to kill his wife or simply write about it; Rebound is a solid character piece about a washed-up reporter stalking a once-great basketball player; and Peekaboo, about the lone tenant in a large, eerie house, has an ending that will make readers jump.
