Old Man Hass is concerned by the near-catatonic behavior of his daughter, Grady. The young woman showed up at his doorstep a few days earlier, refused to admit that anything was wrong, and has been wandering around the farm, not talking and barely eating. The Nameless Detective thinks the old farmer would have been better off calling a psychiatrist-but he's at least willing to ask a few questions. As Nameless begins to investigate, he discovers that Grady's affliction is more than just a broken heart: she has been the victim of brutal psychological torture. In order to save her, he's not only going to have to find her tormentor, he's going to have to call on his own darkest impulses and turn the quarry into the victim.… (mere)

Nameless tracks ruthless arsonist
  ritaer | Jan 16, 2021 |
Nameless is hired by worried father Arlo Haas in rural Central California to find out why his daughter, Grady, has returned home from San Francisco, apparently to hide. Grady's certainly not saying. While Nameless takes the case reluctantly, he soon realizes that Arlo isn't imagining things. Lots of good pavement-pounding detection on the streets of the City; trademark Pronzini descriptions of rural Central California; a lean cast of partly-to-completely unlikeable characters; the continuing story of Nameless's closest associates, including love-of-his-life Kerry; an exciting extended escape sequence. What's not to love?

The descriptions in LT are garbage; ignore them.

Reading the series in order is really mandatory. Like the best serialists, from book to book Pronzini builds a portrait of a man and his development both as a detective and as a human being. Readers new to the series would be utterly confused by the several plot lines that are carried on from the previous series entry. ( )
