The police said it was an accident, the dead woman's sister said it was murder... and that she knew who did it. Nameless isn't certain, but the more he learns about Nancy Mathias's life, the more inclined he is to accept the likelihood of murder--especially as the players still alive become more and more distasteful. Combine that with the situation Jake Runyon, one of the agency's partners, is facing as he searches for a young man who is either a murderer or a victim, and life at their San Francisco detective agency has everyone on edge.

Review quote

[He] is the classic private-eye hero pared down to the bone: He has no identity except for his detective work, into which he pours all his skill and soul. He is a remarkable creation. Chicago Sun-Times on Nightcrawlers

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. He towers over most of the competition. Jon Breen, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine on Nightcrawlers

No one is better at finding the links between tricky homicides than 'Nameless' and no one is more poetic in relating the details of a case; [Pronzini's] crisp language renders a blood-spattered room almost beautiful. Booklist on Nightcrawlers
