 About the Book 

Hes just gotten some bad news, and its impact has made him immobile and fearful. Hes always known that the racking cough was not just something that was going to go away, that the ache in his chest was indicative of something more serious. And nowMoreHes just gotten some bad news, and its impact has made him immobile and fearful. Hes always known that the racking cough was not just something that was going to go away, that the ache in his chest was indicative of something more serious. And now hes found out that he has a lesion on his lung which could be malignant. Hes set to sit and wait and do nothing else until he gets the results, but is swayed into action by a call from an old buddy of his from the service, Harry Burroughs.Harry has an isolated fishing camp in Northern California. Currently, he has several people in residence. Recent events have convinced him that the place is a powderkeg waiting to erupt into violence. Therefore, the call to Nameless. What Nameless finds on his arrival is a simmering situation, mostly caused by the presence of a very erotic woman by the name of Angela who is there with her extremely jealous husband, Ray, who is even more combustible because hes a heavy drinker. Angela is a woman who plays sweet but gets deep underneath a mans skin and is nowhere near as innocent as she would have folks believe.And then the murders start. The first doesnt seem to have anything to do with the situation when a rug dealer is killed in his van. But then the inhabitants of the camp become targets, including Nameless. He faces more than the usual share of danger as he is entombed in a cave. The book has a little bit of everything—sexual intrigue, theft, murder, violence—all leavened by Nameless searching for the truth in a high tension environment.Pronzini makes people and events so real that youre living those explosive days of terror.—Robert Ludlum
