The Nameless Detective is called upon to find out how rare books and maps are being stolen from an antiquarian bookshop with a faultless alarm system. He goes undercover in the store, only to be foiled when a theft occurs right under his nose. Then, as he ponders the case (while on a date with the lovely Kerry), he’s violently struck from behind by a car that seems bent on driving him off the road. Will Nameless survive this attempt on his life and solve the case?

I drive a lot of large landscaping equipment at work and have quite the abundance of listening time on my hands. Drowning out diesel engines
Yes. I didn't expect to be blown away, but this was a nice short mystery story.
If they are able to get it for free as I did, I'd tell them to check it out. Not a bad way to kill an hour and a half.
The book is pretty good. Especially that it is FREE! It's a great story for a quick read, or a quick listen in this case. I wasn't able to pick up who the commits the crime so the ending was a good plot twist for me. Although, I personally think the ending was a bit too exaggerated but that's just me. Great listen....
The story wasn't that great but for a free book it wasn't as bad as some of the other books I've listened to. It's a simple mystery, not enough clues given to the listener to try and figure out the culprit, but over all it was ok.
"amusing little tale"
As a free read this doesn't disappoint as it has a few twists and turns to maintain interest and keep you guessing. Well worth trying as you cant lose
"A clever, clever little story...."
I loved this book. Beautifully written, and beautifully read. It kept my attention throughout, and when it had finished, I listened to it again, to see if I could see any clues! And a love story to boot.
it was like a stage play where each character became a suspect.because of the limited length of time the auther needed to esatablish motives, opportunities, and gains which he did admirabley
"Average Private Eye tale"
As a freebie it was worth a listen but I wouldn't want to pay for it. The story is a little run of the mill but well narrated.
"Shorr but sweet"
Enjoyed it but then I like 'locked room' mysteries. Think Jonathan Creek would've solved it quicker. It's free and entertaining, give it a go.
