There doesn’t seem to be any subject matter too personal, too outrageous for discussion. Cosmetic surgery, for instance. Intimate cosmetic surgery. Intimate cosmetic surgery amed up in my wildest fantasies. Friday night I found out far more than I ever wanted to know about this topic. And in the unlikeliest of places-over dinner in a moderately expensive, sedate Italian restaurant in Ghirardelli Square. The two women in question were Kerry and Tamara. Since my semiretirement, and even more since her struggles with breast cancer, Kerry and I had been.

Bill Pronzini's novel, Fever, features his Nameless Detective and partners working on another pair of crimes. Pronzini has been writing this private detective series for forty years and I've been reading them almost as long. This has been Pronzini's format for the series for a while now, and it's really effective. The author concentrates more on telling interesting mysteries against the fabric of real life, and creating organic detective that grow from book to book. Although I've figured out most of the author's moves during that time, he can still fool me and throw a curveball that catches me looking. The twist at the end of Fever is a great one.

Bill Pronzini's novel, Snowbound, received the Grand Prix de la Littérature Policière as the best crime novel published in France in 1988. A Wasteland of Strangers was nominated for best crime novel of 1997 by both the Mystery Writers of America and the International Crime Writers Association; in addition to six Edgar Award nominations, Pronzini has received three Shamus Awards, two for best novel, and the Lifetime Achievement Award. He lives in northern California with his wife, the crime novelist Marcia Muller. Библиографические данные.

Nameless Detective Novels. The longest running PI series currently in print, including Strangers, Nemesis and Vixen. Never, ever miss a Nameless case .

Nameless Detective is the protagonist in a long-running mystery series by Bill Pronzini set in the San Francisco area. The first novel, The Snatch, was published in 1971. As of 2013, there are 40 novels featuring "Nameless," and two short story collections. Though the character's name is never revealed in the series, some background details of the detective's life have been occasionally mentioned.

The Penultimate Peril has been revealed to be the name of the twelfth book.

Nameless Detective Series. 41 primary works, 47 total works. In a master stroke (or maybe just a happy accident), Bill Pronzini never got around to giving his private eye protagonist a name. He then turned around and made him such a well-rounded, finely-drawn character that a name was superflous. He's the detective as Everyman. Middle-aged, out of shape, content with a cold beer and one of his beloved pul. ore.

Nameless had told Mitchell Krochek that he'd do whatever he could to find his missing wife, Janice. She'd run away before―propelled by a gambling fever that grew ever higher―and Mitch had always taken her back. This time, when Nameless, his partner Tamara, and the agency's chief operative Jake Runyon finally found her in a sleazy San Francisco hotel, she demanded a divorce.

A few days later, a beaten and bloody Janice stumbled into the agency begging to go home. No one is surprised when, soon after her homecoming, she disappears again.

But gambling addiction has a way of twisting things, and the blood on Mitchell and Janice Krochek's kitchen floor was a card off the bottom of the deck.

Janice is missing again, Mitchell is the prime suspect, and as Nameless searches for the truth behind her disappearance, he uncovers a vicious racket that preys on gambling fever victims…

"You can't hold yourself responsible for the actions of others---that was a hard and fast truth..." Isn't that the truth? And, the overarching theme of another one of the fine novels in this series. This quote is Runyan, one of the PIs ,musing to himself about the sad case he is investigating, pro bono, for an older woman with a wayward adult child. Runyon finds the truth and, while he is tempted to cover it up, doesn't. After all, people do what they do to themselves.You can just do so much. Keeping with his usual structure, Pronzini has another narrative going at the same time, playing off the same theme: a man who loves his wayward wife, who is a compulsive gambler, who wants to help her and so turns to the nameless detective(who does, it turns out in this book, gets a first name). This narrative ends with the same lesson. These books are excellent---there is hardbolied language but he does not use it so much that it clutters the narratives and distracts from the lessons. Spare and effective.

"Fever" is the 32nd Nameless Detective novel by Bill Pronzini. The Nameless series is one of the longest running in detective fiction. Once a lone wolf detective, Nameless now has a name (Bill), a partner (Tamara), and 2 operatives in his agency. The agency is hired by Mitchell Krochek to find his missing wife Janice. They find her rather easily, but she refuses to go home. Janice has a bad case of gambling fever and may be involved with some unsavory characters. When someone close to the Krochek's is killed, Nameless realizes this case is more complex than he once thought. The other case is a pro bono case for Jake Runyon. Rose Youngblood's son Brian has been beaten up and she feared for his life. The more Runyon investigates, the more bizarre the case becomes. Pronzini is one of those rare authors that puts the reader at the scene of the action. His writing is clear and concise. "Fever" is a strong addition to this series and is highly recommended.

Bill Pronzini's novel, Fever, features his Nameless Detective and partners working on another pair of crimes. This has been Pronzini's format for the series for a while now, and it's really effective. The author concentrates more on telling interesting mysteries against the fabric of real life, and creating organic detective that grow from book to book.

This one starts out interestingly, with Nameless and his partner Tamara picking up the trail of Janice Krochek, a wife gone missing. Jake Runyon, their field operative, has tracked the woman down. I liked the way Pronzini sets up the encounter and explains the laws of tracking down adults. A private eye can't just bag and tag an adult that's willingly gone missing. Adults have the right to disappear and not come home any time they want to.

Janice Krochek's addiction to gambling shows up on page one and maintains the addiction theme of the novel throughout. Normally in a Nameless novel there's a client or someone Nameless meets that deserves rooting on. In Fever, though, Nameless doesn't care much for Janice Krochek or her husband Mitch. However, both of these characters - slaves to their own addictions - are very true to life. Pronzini writes the characters lean and mean, pared to the bone, but the story echoes and provides food for thought.

As soon as Nameless believes he's out of the Janice tracking business, she shows back up at his agency after someone has beaten her up. She claims that her life is in danger. Nameless takes her back to her husband, but it's clear that he's not as happy about having her back as he'd thought he would be. I had a lot of mixed feelings about this ending, but thankfully Pronzini doesn't let the story end there, because it suddenly takes on more dangerous and mysterious overtones.

In the meantime, Jake Runyon gets involved with a pro bono case of his own that Tamara has undertaken for the agency. Brian Youngblood's life has suddenly turned inside out and his mother wants to know why. Jake's investigation put him into the path of Bryn Darby, a woman who becomes part of the Nameless canon in later books. I had read about Bryn in other books, and now I'm glad I got to find out how they first met and what drew them together. Jake is one of those interesting, wounded characters that are fun to follow.

The Krochek case turns violent when Mitch calls Nameless in and shows him all the blood smeared throughout his house. I was pretty certain that Mitch had murdered his wife at that point, but Nameless takes the case on again to find out what happened. I knew I was in for a rollercoaster ride and looked forward to it.

Pronzini has been writing this private detective series for forty years and I've been reading them almost as long. Although I've figured out most of the author's moves during that time, he can still fool me and throw a curveball that catches me looking. The twist at the end of Fever is a great one.
