Two novellas and two short stories featuring Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Bill Pronzini’s iconic Nameless Detective “Zigzag” is an original novella, in which a safe and simple accident investigation becomes the unraveling of a twisted murder scheme. Grapplin’,” which first appeared in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, deals with the kind of missing person case that can end in only one of two ways, closure or heartbreak. In the second short, “Nightscape,” listeners discover how, indeed, one thing just leads to another. (This story was first published in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine as “The Winning Ticket.”) The final work, “Revenant,” is another original novella and entangles Nameless in a weird crime with fearful occult overtones.

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.
