Pronzini's collection of 15 short stories celebrates the 25th anniversary of the popular Nameless Detective's first story, "The Snatch." Stories include the Shamus Award-winning "Cat's Paw," voted best detective short story of 1983, and other equally captivating and sophisticated tales, puzzles, and locked-room mysteries. Narrator Nick Sullivan captures the detective's hard-boiled investigative style with careful pacing. His gritty, understated reading and subtle misdirection lead inattentive listeners to miss important clues, especially with "Cat's Paw." Further, his delivery of "Worried Mother Job"--which amplifies its chilling psychological intensity--will be remembered long after the story ends. Don't miss Marcia Muller's captivating foreword about Pronzini's work or the author's fascinating afterword. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2013]
