Description

“[Nightcrawlers] packs enough grim drama and emotional traumas to go around…High-stakes, triple plot lines.” Amazon.com, editorial review

Things were quiet in Nameless' San Francisco agency, and his partner, Tamara, was itching to get back to work. A deadbeat father needed to be found, and Tamara needed to do some fieldwork, so she took off for his last known address.

When Tamara goes missing, Nameless feels a sinking in his gut: A few years ago he had been kidnapped and left to die in a cabin in the woods, and something about Tamara's disappearance echoes too loudly. When he discovers the house she had investigated and sees the words "taking us to a house in the wood" scrawled on a wall, the echo becomes thunderous. Now it's a race against time, and Nameless is already late.

Praise

“[Nightcrawlers] packs enough grim drama and emotional traumas to go around…High-stakes, triple plot lines.” Amazon.com, editorial review

“Fast-paced…Pronzini handles the two main story lines and multiple, shifting points of view with aplomb while unsentimentally exploring violence against gays with understatement, righteous indignation, and genuine pathos…Pronzini just doesn’t get better than this.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Pronzini constructs his sturdy plot with top-quality materials, including spit-polished dialogue and loathsome villains who actually giggle as they crack their victims’ bones.” New York Times

“His novels are cerebral, not bloody. There is violence, but of a muted sort, and none of it is gratuitous…The Nameless Detective novels are a thinking reader’s detective series.” Chicago Sun-Times

“There is no living writer whose work more faithfully embodies the spirit of classic private-eye fiction than Bill Pronzini’s. It is class, classy noir storytelling.” Cleveland Plain Dealer

“The nightcrawlers have gotten the investigators’ attention…and brought their evil right into the offices of the investigators, up close and all too personal.” Mystery News
