"You Will Know His Name...The characters relationships and interactions are full of struggles and fun, not just purely good or bad. Nameless is definitely a book for those long days at the beach and one that will keep you reading until the end." -Portland Book Review

You are on the edge of your seat all the way through this book. I will admit there were two paragraphs I didn't read because I was too freaked out by what was happening. This is only the second book amongst thousands where that has happened. The author doesn't let up one iota until the last page. Pacing Lickety Split Quick.
Cons: Dialogue in the book makes everyone sound exactly alike, from the Director of the FBI to the prostitutes. Typically their speech patterns are dissimilar between these classes of people. It just struck me as odd hearing the same voice coming out of everyone's mouth.
Overall, the book was an intense, swift and vivid read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommended!
The bad :( - Characters are interesting yet rather unbelievable most especially the serial killer, Shem. How can anyone given his background gain such an implausible level of skills and intelligence such as to ooze super human abilities out of every pore?
The Ugly :-0 - Book has an enormous amount of detail regarding the goriest, most gruesome acts of violence I have come across in a long time. (Some may like this and others would rather leave more to the imagination.)
Overall, I'm kind of on the fence as to how much I really like this book...but given the ending (or lack of) it's left wide open for a sequel for those that care to partake. I'd say it's an ok book if a little predictable and worth a solid 3.5 stars rounded up in the end.
I've read a few Thrillers before and although the genre is good, it's never been one I've been completely into.... until Nameless. This was a book that caught my attention from the very beginning. I was in awe of the details in which the Author wrote about. I enjoyed how much depth each character was given. I felt like I could actually see what I was reading. Mr. Conlan wasn't afraid to be gory and at some of the scenes, I literally gasped (had it been a movie, I would have screamed). I enjoyed trying to figure out what was going to happen next.... sometimes I was right, other times I was very wrong. I even had dreams about this story! I can't believe this was the first Novel written by Mr. Conlan. He is definitely going places with Nameless. I would recommend this book who is into Thrillers; however, I would recommend it anyone who isn't. Well done, Mr. Conlan! I look forward to reading more of your books!
This book kept me turning the pages. It is well crafted and the characters well drawn. Tension persists throughout the read, and there are some unexpected twists in the tale to make you think again and anticipate more. Conlan's style is quick and clear, he holds the reader's attention, brings anticipated outcomes to a well- constructed conclusion and smoothly moves on to the next surprising twist.
Very enjoyable, unputdownable narrative. Cannot wait for the sequel, prequel, or whatever way he writes it.
