Scenarios by Bill Pronzini
Book Description Five Star. The series also deals with the lover of Nameless, Kerry showing that he did not just live a lonely life as a private investigator.
This was an attempt by author Bill Pronzini to end the novel series on a positive note in the year However, stories after stories kept coming to his mind and he could really put and end to the developing plot of the series. In the further novels of the series, it is seen that Nameless begins to live a domestic life with a wife and a child, and plans of handing over his agency to his partner, Tamara Corbin. He, later breaks with a new investigator named Jake Runyon.
The later parts of the series have been written in a cozy mystery style by the author. The novels of the series after the introduction of Tamara Corbin and Jake Runyon feature three separate cases for each of Nameless, Tamara and Jake, which often get linked at the end.
Scenarios: A "Nameless Detective" Casebook
The deep involvement of author Bill Pronzini in the characterization of the Nameless Detective can be seen from his quote, which says that whenever he imagines about Nameless Detective, he sees himself. The first novel of the series was published in the year by the Random House Trade publishing house. In the opening plot of the novel, Nameless detective is hired to handle the payment of ransom money in a kidnapping case.
The nine year old son of a financier named Louis Martinetti gets kidnapped from his military preparatory school.
Louis does not have faith in the police to deal with the kidnapper and get his son home safely. He also does not trust any member of his household.
As a result, he hires Nameless to carry out the dealing with the kidnapper. From there on, the story unfolds in a heroic manner as Nameless showcases the glimpse of his bravery and saves the 9 year old son of Louis Martinetti. He also catches the kidnapper and solves the case with the help of his bravery and dedication. Opinion: Seriously didn't know how good this was going to be. The Big Bite story alone is worth twice the price. Top shelf. One of the best mystery collections I have ever read, writers mentioned above included. Highly recommended.
