Nameless had seen enough death in his years; spending his time watching someone drive to several funerals a day, funerals for people he didn’t know, was more than he could take. And he had a non-professional problem of his own: his relationship with his wife, Kerry, had hit a wall, and nothing he did got him over it and to the other side. There was one possibility, one thing he’d done (or not done), but knowing that didn’t seem to help. Also not helping was the mood in the office. Tamara had something eating at her and Jake, well, Jake needed a case so he could stop thinking about what was happening with his son. It was a mournful time for everyone. Then the bits and pieces began to fall into place: The funerals James Troxell was attending were all for women who had died violently. Was he responsible? One woman thought Troxell had killed her sister, and her insistence was becoming a problem. Too many deaths, too many roads leading nowhere, too many crimes and secrets and fears were coming together as heavy as the fog rolling over the Bay. Too many answers were needed before there’d be sunshine again for anyone and the mourning could stop.

Summary

Nameless had seen enough death in his years; spending his time watching someone drive to several funerals a day, funerals for people he didn’t know, was more than he could take. And he had a non-professional problem of his own: his relationship with his wife, Kerry, had hit a wall, and nothing he did got him over it and to the other side. There was one possibility, one thing he’d done (or not done), but knowing that didn’t seem to help. Also not helping was the mood in the office. Tamara had something eating at her and Jake, well, Jake needed a case so he could stop thinking about what was happening with his son. It was a mournful time for everyone.

Then the bits and pieces began to fall into place: The funerals James Troxell was attending were all for women who had died violently. Was he responsible? One woman thought Troxell had killed her sister, and her insistence was becoming a problem.

Too many deaths, too many roads leading nowhere, too many crimes and secrets and fears were coming together as heavy as the fog rolling over the Bay. Too many answers were needed before there’d be sunshine again for anyone and the mourning could stop.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pronzini’s series becomes more layered and complex with each entry. This time the primary characters are all in one stage or another of mourning, but the only one who recognizes it is the initial subject of the investigation. He is also the only one who understands the timeless omnipresence of grief. It may fade into the shadows, but it never leaves, dogging one’s every step. A dark, foreboding entry in a classic series.” Booklist
“Nick Sullivan has the characterizations down pat; he wisely refrains from taking the falsetto route in voicing female characters, but he does imbue them with distinct personalities, especially the volatile Tamara. Humor, pathos, solid stories, spot-on dialog, and a fascinating glimpse into the workings of a private detective agency have carried Pronzini’s ‘Nameless’ books to the top of the charts; this one will also find a lofty perch in all public libraries.” Library Journal (audio review)
“Shamus-winner Pronzini can still whip up a descriptive storm in just a few words.” Publishers Weekly 
“Happy faces are in short supply once more as the Nameless Detective sets out on his thirtieth walk on the dark side…The only faces that won’t be sad are those of fans of plotting and narrative drive, who’ll rejoice in a case that’s close to flawless.” Kirkus Reviews
“The...reader’s involvement with ‘Nameless’ and his problems continues to increase in intensity, making the series succeed on an emotional level rare in the field.” Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine
“‘Nameless’ is a good man to walk you through the noir landscape.” New York Times Book Review
