Nameless had told Mitchell Krochek that he’d do whatever he could to find his missing wife, Janice. She’d run away before—propelled by a gambling fever that grew ever higher—and Mitch had always taken her back. This time, when Nameless, his partner Tamara, and the agency’s chief operative Jake Runyon finally found her in a sleazy San Francisco hotel, she demanded a divorce.

 

A few days later, a beaten and bloody Janice stumbled into the agency begging to go home. No one is surprised when, soon after her homecoming, she disappears again.

 

But gambling addiction has a way of twisting things, and the blood on Mitchell and Janice Krochek’s kitchen floor was a card off the bottom of the deck.

 

Janice is missing again, Mitchell is the prime suspect, and as Nameless searches for the truth behind her disappearance, he uncovers a vicious racket that preys on gambling fever victims…

Praise for Fever

“His novels are cerebral, not bloody. There is violence, but of a muted sort, and none of it is gratuitous… The ‘Nameless Detective’ novels are a thinking reader’s detective series.”--The Chicago Sun-Times 

“There is no living writer whose work more faithfully embodies the spirit of classic private-eye fiction than Bill Pronzini’s. [It is] classy, classy noir storytelling.”--Les Roberts, Cleveland Plain-Dealer 

“One of the greatest-ever detective series.”--Booklist
