About this title

Synopsis:

Shamus Award-winning author

Few writers have ever had such a loyal reader following as Bill Pronzini and his "Nameless Detective." In terms of life on the printed page, the "Nameless Detective" celebrates his 35th birthday in 2003. The fourteen stories in this collection span the entire 35 years of "Nameless's" existence.

From Booklist:

Nameless, the compassionate San Francisco PI, first appeared in "It's a Lousy World" in 1968. Since then he has been the subject of 28 novels and more than 40 short stories. This collection of 14 stories, presented in chronological order, spans the entire 35 years of Nameless' life in print. Clever plots are a Pronzini trademark, but what has etched Nameless so indelibly in the hearts of readers is his steady progression from lonely middle age to respectable family man in his mid-sixties. That entire process is relected here. Highlights include "Incident in a Neighborhood Tavern" and "The Ghosts of Ragged-Ass Gulch," in which Nameless confronts a rural community violently opposed to a powerful real-estate developer. Longtime fans will treasure the compressed overview of Nameless' life provided by these carefully arranged stories. Converts will have 28 novels to get up to speed. Highly recommended. Wes Lukowsky
