Book Summary

In his first chronicled adventure, the NAMELESS DETECTIVE hires on to handle the ransom payoff in a kidnapping case. Financier Louis Martinetti doesnt trust the police to deal with the man who snatched his 9-year-old son from his military prep school, nor is it clear that he trusts the members of his own household. On the appointed evening, NAMELESS takes a briefcase that contains $300,000 in cash to a secluded location chosen by the kidnapper. Then all hell breaks loose.

    Good story, the beginnings of the series, very reminiscent of other authors of the same era and area. Lots of dark and foggy streets of San Francisco to drive down.

    COMMENTS I love the Nameless series and read many of them years and years ago. Going to start again from the 1st. I really like his descriptive yet to the point style of writing. There is something about these shorter older crime fiction books that is very appealing to me. We meet "nameless" on a kidnapping case with a less than scrupulous local businessman. His girlfriend Erica makes a brief entrance onto the scene and a quicker departure … she believes his dalliance in being a private eye is a boy playing and not something a grown up man would be doing. SO … that relationship is Adios. We barely get introduced to Eberhardt, his sometimes sidekick and long-time friend. Great intro to the series!
