Summary

Summary

For over thirty years, Bill Pronzini has created fictional sleuths. The most famous dubbed the Nameless Detective appeared in twenty-five novels. But there are many others like Fergus O'Hara who, with his wife Hattie, plies his trade at the time of Civil War; John Quincannon and Sabina Carpenter, a mismatched pair who operate a detective agency in 1890s San Francisco; Christopher Steele the magician who specializes in solving impossible crimes, and so many more. Each of these colorful characters is represented in this detectives' round table - a must-read for mystery lovers.
