Written By Bill Pronzini
The Nameless Detective is called upon to find out how rare books and maps are being stolen from an antiquarian bookshop with a faultless alarm system. He goes undercover in the store, only to be foiled when a theft occurs right under his nose. Then, as he ponders the case (while on a date with the lovely Kerry), he’s violently struck from behind by a car that seems bent on driving him off the road. Will Nameless survive this attempt on his life and solve the case?
I had a lot of fun listening to this one. it was perfect for that rainy day at the cabin. Written in the 1920s "film noir" style, it held my attention and had me guessing "who done it". While not overly taxing, this cleverly written short, is perfect for listening on long drives, during rainstorms, while folding laundry, or when winding down just before bed. It's simply entertaining. I will certainly be seeking out more shorts by this author.
