Having narrated a considerable number of "Nameless Detective" novels, you’d expect veteran Nick Sullivan to get it down pat. While Sullivan delivers an adequate performance in this latest, his reading falls short of expectations. Nameless and his crew, Tamara and Jake, are called in to find a woman with a gambling addiction who has disappeared. Finding her is easy—Nameless finds her twice—then she disappears for good, and foul play is suspected, possibly by the woman's husband, who hired the detectives in the first place. When the search is launched again, something besides the missing woman is uncovered. Sullivan's announcer-like voice gets your attention, but there's little variation in his pace or his characters. You can be listening one moment, lost the next. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
