Scenarios - A Collection of Nameless Detective Stories. Few characters have the loyal readership of Bill Pronzini's "Nameless Detective. The fourteen stories in this collection span his entire thirty-five-year life on the printed page. The Bags of Tricks Affair is the latest charming historical mystery in MWA Grand Master Bill Pronzini's detective series. A conman always has a bag of tricks, ready to fool the unsuspecting, and almost everyone is unsuspecting until they get taken.

Nameless Detective is the protagonist in a long-running mystery series by Bill Pronzini set in the San Francisco area. The first novel, The Snatch, was published in 1971. As of 2013, there are 40 novels featuring "Nameless," and two short story collections. Though the character's name is never revealed in the series, some background details of the detective's life have been occasionally mentioned.

Bill Pronzini's novel, Snowbound, received the Grand Prix de la Littérature Policière as the best crime novel published in France in 1988. A Wasteland of Strangers was nominated for best crime novel of 1997 by both the Mystery Writers of America and the International Crime Writers Association; in addition to six Edgar Award nominations, Pronzini has received three Shamus Awards, two for best novel, and the Lifetime Achievement Award. He lives in northern California with his wife, the crime novelist Marcia Muller.

In Bill Pronzini's "Schemers," Nameless and the staff of his San . I love the new covers of the "Nameless" Detective novels by Bill Pronzini. The scenario gets bumped up and shot full of steroids when the story involves a collector of Golden Age mysteries.

In Bill Pronzini's "Schemers," Nameless and the staff of his San Francisco-based private investigation agency are looking into two very different mysteries. One involves Cliff and Damon Henderson, two brothers in their thirties who are being stalked by a psychopath with an unknown agenda. They're mocked up to look like file folders and make it simple to recognize these books at a glance. I loved all the name-dropping that went on during the conversations.

Incidently, Bill Pronzini has always said that when imagines the Nameless Detective, he sees Bill Pronzini. Pronzini is something of a one-man publishing machine.

Not the lone wolf action-packed adventures of yore, perhaps, but a realistic and revealing (and unapologetically adult) continuation of one man's journey down the mean streets. The Nameless series is simply one of the bravest and most gripping voyages detective fiction has to offer - climb on board. Incidently, Bill Pronzini has always said that when imagines the Nameless Detective, he sees Bill Pronzini.

Bill Pronzini is best known for his "Nameless Detective" novels. "Scenarios" is a casebook of short stories featuring Nameless. In all there are 14 short stories in this book. Of special interest is the short story "It's a Lousy World" which is Nameless' first case and was written in 1968. There is also a Nameless/Sharon McCone story which Pronzini co-wrote with his wife, Marcia Muller. Bill Pronzini is a giant in mystery fiction and this book shows he is a master of the short story as well. "Scenarios" should be a part of any "Nameless Detective" collection.

Facts:
A large print hardcover book with several short mystery stories featuring "Nameless Detective". One Locked Room, a few tragedies, a few ironies.

Opinion:
Seriously didn't know how good this was going to be. If you like pulps, Robert B Parker, Dashiell Hammett,Raymond Chandler or just fine writing try this out. The Big Bite story alone is worth twice the price. Top shelf. One of the best mystery collections I have ever read, writers mentioned above included. Highly recommended.

Because of the well-deserved reputation of this sleuth, this reviewer is keeping this review very short as this fourteen-story casebook showcases one of the great sleuths of the last half of century, The Nameless Detective. The anthology covers the full range of decades starting back in the late 1960s and going into 2002, but most of the contributions were written between 1979-1995. Bill Pronzini displays his talent throughout the book so that readers receive what is bound to be recognized as one of the better crime fiction assemblages of the year. The numerous fans of the Nameless Detective will rejoice with this complete compilation while if there is anyone who has not tried at least one tale this is a delightful entry to one of the greats.

Pronzini sits at the top of the list of Hammett's successors. His Nameless Detective has established his own claim to the San Francisco neighborhoods where Sam Spade and the Continental Op once trod. As a long-time Nameless fan I sought out Scenarios, hoping to revel in a trove of undiscovered Nameless tales. Alas, this collection of mostly re-published materials overwhelmed me with deja vu. These are great stories--Pronzini doesn't write any other kind-- but if you're a Nameless fan, you've probably read most of them already in such collections as Case File and Spadework. Plot lines from several others can be found in full length Nameless novels. Only two or three of these fourteen stories sounded new to me. New fans will enjoy this book but oldtimers will be better off waiting for the next Nameless novel.
