Bill Pronzini, STRANGERS

This is the latest addition to the Nameless Detective series in which the protagonist remains unnamed.  Today, when so many mysteries are striving so hard to be literary that they have the barest semblance of a plot, Pronzini gives us a good detective story filled with thoughtful interrogations, some exciting action scenes, and a detective who comes away changed by what he discovers.

Pronzini’s Nameless novels are also quite brief, perhaps also a virtue with so many bloated novels on the market, but you come away feeling that you’ve experienced a story of considerable complexity. ¬†Give STRANGERS a try and see how it used to be done and so rarely is today.
