A simple case of blackmail gets lethally complicated when “Nameless” exposes a nasty scam that involves junior accounts executive Jay Cohalan, his unhappy wife, and a mistress with a serious drug problem. It’s the kind of case Nameless likes, because bleeders—the blackmailers, extortionists, small-time grifters, and other opportunists who prey on the weak and gullible—sit near the top of his most-worthless-human-beings list. But soon Nameless finds his client shot dead in the middle of a four-poster bed, and only by a hair’s breadth escapes a similar fate. During a relentless hunt for his unknown assailant in San Francisco’s shadowy underworld, he encounters bleeders of every ilk, and, in a climax as powerful as it is unexpected, finally confronts his own demons.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Nameless, as suggested here, may be on the verge of a well-earned retirement, but he’s in top form as he often has been in Pronzini’s award-winning series.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“All told, a well-delivered adventure, by writer and reader. If this is Nameless’s exit, we shall miss him.” AudioFile
“This well-performed audiobook is sure to please the author’s fans, who may be disappointed to learn this could be the last go-around for Nameless.” Booklist

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.
