Loved all the short stories!

The short stories move quickly and hold your attention throughout! Nick Sullivan did a great job narrating. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Good intro to Nameless Detective Series

4/5 Stars Case File by Bill Pronzini Short Stories starring the Nameless Detective Narrated by Nick Sullivan Run Time: 7 hrs and 45 mins Summary: A series of short stories featuring a nameless detective around the 1970’s (I think). Additional Comments: - Not naming the MC is kinda lazy, but that’s the hill the author decided to defend. Whatever. At least there’s an attempt at an explanation in the beginning. - It’s interesting to have something set in the relatively recent past. This isn’t Victorian England or the Wild West, it’s late 20th century but before cell phones and the internet. Computers are just starting to be a thing. That features heavily in one case. - Like any old school Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys story, if you listen to enough of these you can probably start predicting the outcomes. The author manages a few surprises, but not many. - Clean reads. - There isn’t that much character development, but that’s because short stories don’t necessarily lend themselves to knowing everything there is to know about a character. Conclusion: Good enough to make me want to seek out more by the author.
