“Can doing first-rate work as consistently as Pronzini really be as effortless as he makes it seem?”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“The Nameless series continues to be a wonder of great plotting, long-term character development, and insight into the chilling banality of evil.”
—Booklist, starred review
“Pronzini is a pro at PI fiction: he never cheats on the reader, respecting the conventions of the hard-boiled detective stories and puzzle mysteries he employs so well.”
"Nameless" fans will say Nemesis is the best in a great series.
I really enjoyed the way the novel is broken up into three parts, each telling a section from Runyon's, Tamara's, and finally Nameless's point of view.
She assigns Verity Daniels's case to private investigator Jake Runyon, who visits Ms. Daniels at her exclusive San Francisco condominium.
Great to get another new book by Pronzini. His Nameless detective stories are terrific, especially with the SF locales and feel.Published 2 months ago by Irene Andersen
