Publisher's Summary

Nameless wasn't supposed to come into the office on Mondays; he wasn't supposed to answer the phone. On this Monday, he did both. The call was from Barney Rivera - once a friend, now despised - at Great Western Insurance. Against his better judgment, Nameless agreed to meet with him.

The investigation was relatively simple: a multimillionaire rare books collector had reported the theft of eight volumes, worth a half million dollars. From a locked library. To which he has the only key.

Couldn't even get through the first hour!

BORING! I guess you get what you pay for, and audio books are no exception. I had read (listened to) another "Nameless Detective" book which was pretty good, so I expected this to be up there as well. No such luck. I have even tried to fast forward, hoping to get to the "good part," but finally gave up.

I would also warn about getting the BBC audio version of another in the series, "Hardcase" as the narrator whispers for several of the characters's voices and the volume changes throughout the entire book. Very annoying and disruptive to the flow of the story line. (Which in a printed form would be pretty worth checking out of your library).
