Two novellas and two short stories featuring Mystery Writers of America Grandmaster 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, readers discover how, indeed, one thing just leads to another (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.

About 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 Detroit Free Press said of him, "It's always nice to see masters at work. Pronzini's clear style seamlessly weaves [storylines] together, turning them into a quick, compelling read." He is the author of Snowbound, A Wasteland of Strangers and the "Nameless" Detective series. He lives and writes in California, with his wife, the crime novelist Marcia Muller.
