The police said it was an accident, the dead woman's sister said it was murder... and that she knew who did it. Nameless isn't certain, but the more he learns about Nancy Mathias's life, the more inclined he is to accept the likelihood of murder--especially as the players still alive become more and more distasteful. Combine that with the situation Jake Runyon, one of the agency's partners, is facing as he searches for a young man who is either a murderer or a victim, and life at their San Francisco detective agency has everyone on edge.

"Nameless has bad memories of Celeste Ogden. Rich, bossy, and arrogant, she had hired the agency to investigate her sister Nancy's fiance, Brandon Mathias. Mrs. Ogden was certain Mathias was up to no good, but Nameless searched out Mathias's past so thoroughly - he couldn't imagine there was anything he didn't know about the man. But Celeste Ogden refused to accept that nothing was wrong with Mathias's past." "Now Nancy is dead. She fell in her home. The doors and windows were all locked. Mathias was in Chicago. But Mrs. Ogden wants Nameless to prove that her sister's fall wasn't an accident - that it was murder, orchestrated by Mathias. Nameless reluctantly agrees to investigate - and what he finds is something so sordid that the question of murder is almost beside the point." "Meanwhile, Jake Runyan's case starts out much more simply: serve a subpoena to a witness. But Jake's appearance at his farm results in a concussion for the detective and the accidental discovery of a man's body hanging from a rafter in the barn." "As Nameless unravels relationships in San Francisco, Jake digs through a tangle of lies, deceit, and bitterness - he doesn't want anything to do with this, but he's helpless to avoid it all."--BOOK JACKET.
