It was a good call to cast narrator Nick Sullivan for the Nameless Detective Agency series. In this one, Nameless solves a true parlor mystery (a man is killed in the locked library of a mystery book collector) while partner Jake Runyon tracks a psychotic, obsessive-compulsive stalker. Tamara Corbin (the third partner in the agency) stars in a subplot about her love life. As the Nameless crew prowls Northern California, things never get too gritty, or too dark, and the most dangerous things that intrude are a few bouts of melancholy. Sullivan delivers just enough dry wit for the Nameless sections (told in the first person) and a trustworthy noir tone for the Runyon segments (in the third person).
