Publisher's Summary

A deadly black widow has eliminated three husbands and counting. But Nameless knows her one weakness. To bring truth and its consequences to her crimes, the vigilante must spin a web of his own in part three of the Nameless series.

Lucia - current last name, Rickenbah - has made a fortune by marrying rich men who tend to drop dead. But the superstitious blonde believes in more than money and murder. Nameless’s job is to scare a confession out of Lucia, and as the psychological warfare escalates, even he may be in for a shock.

From number one New York Times best-selling author Dean Koontz comes The Praying Mantis Bride, part three of Nameless, a riveting collection of short stories about a vigilante nomad, stripped of his memories and commissioned to kill. Follow him in each story, which can be listened to in a single sitting.

Good story and narration!

This was another good story of the Nameless man. I really am enjoying these short stories. They are good and things happen quickly.

This one was about a superstitious psycho woman. I won't go any further than that since it was a short story and I don't want to give anything away.

As for the narration, Edwardo Ballerini does a great job on all the voices including the female voices. He has a very nice reading voice too.

Praying mantis Bride

This is an excellent series. First time I tried audible books. Koontz is able to still able to give enough detail of characters and surroundings that draws the reader's imagination in. Great plot.. each one is surprisingly different. I applaud him on his ability to fit all this in a short story..I don't know why I should be surprised, he is my favorite author. I can always count on enjoying his books. Now I'm enjoying his short stories.

Yet another short and sweetly sick story

And I loved every word. It's like short appetizers for those who like a little "bad guy gets what he deserves" story. Yummy

A Little Humor

There’s some humor in this story. Each story in this series is interesting enough on their own, but adds a bit more to the overall story of Nameless.
