Pronzini, Bill, Zigzag

Two novellas and two short stories featuring Mystery Writers of America Grandmaster Bill Pronzini's iconic Nameless Detective!

Zigzag is an original novella, in which a safe and simple accident investigation becomes the unraveling of a twisted murder scheme.

Grapplin, which first appeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, deals with the kind of missing person case that can end in only one of two ways, closure or heartbreak.

In the second short, Nightscape, readers discover how, indeed, one thing just leads to another (First published inEllery Queen's Mystery Magazineas The Winning Ticket).

The final work, Revenant, is another original novella and entangles Nameless in a weird crime with fearful occult overtones.
