9780792731719: Demons: A Nameless Detective Mystery (Nameless Detective Novels)

For the Nameless Detective, investigations involving matters of the heart are to be avoided at all costs. When an old poker buddy asks him to help frazzled and distraught Kay Runyon, whose husband, Victor, is having a clandestine affair with a mystery woman named Nedra, Nameless unwillingly relents, but he soon discovers there is much more at stake than a simple affair. Nedra is a modern-day Circe who attracts men who become dangerously obsessed with her. Compounding the sticky situation at hand, Victor's obsession with her takes a bizarre twist when she suddenly vanishes without a trace. Did she disappear willingly or was she the victim of one of her lovers' private demons? Nameless must find out before it's too late to save Victor and Kay from tragic ends. And he must do so while trying to cope with a very personal and private demon of his own.

About the Author:

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.



Nick Sullivan has worked extensively on Broadway and throughout the United States. His television credits include 30 Rock, The Good Wife, All My Children, and all three Law & Order series. He has recorded hundreds of audiobooks, is an Audie Award winner, and has received numerous AudioFile Earphones Awards.

From AudioFile:

In his latest adventure, the Nameless Detective takes on Kay Runyon as a client. Kay wants to discover the identity of the "mystery woman" her husband is obsessed with. The case turns into a search for Nedra Merchant as well as a search into her past, which is filled with men similarly obsessed. A production that defines "fully voiced," Demons is a classic of the genre and a classic audiobook. Jerry Longe changes his voice so effectively that it's sometimes hard to believe that there's only one reader. The entire performance flawlessly evokes Nameless: a man obsessed with his work, with his own code of honor, who does not always fit into today's world. This audiobook is essential for any collection or fan of mystery fiction. M.A.M. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
