Nameless had told Mitchell Krochek that he'd do whatever he could to find his missing wife, Janice. She'd run away before-propelled by a gambling fever that grew ever higher-and Mitch had always taken her back. This time, when Nameless, his partner Tamara, and the agency's chief operative Jake Runyon finally found her in a sleazy San Francisco hotel, she demanded a divorce. A few days later, a beaten and bloody Janice stumbled into the agency begging to go home. No one is surprised when, soon after her homecoming, she disappears again. But gambling addiction has a way of twisting things, and the blood on Mitchell and Janice Krochek's kitchen floor was a card off the bottom of the deck. Janice is missing again, Mitchell is the prime suspect, and as Nameless searches for the truth behind her disappearance, he uncovers a vicious racket that preys on gambling-fever victims...

"Having narrated a considerable number of "Nameless Detective" novels, you'd expect veteran Nick Sullivan to get it down pat. While Sullivan delivers an adequate performance in this latest, his reading falls short of expectations. Nameless and his crew, Tamara and Jake, are called in to find a woman with a gambling addiction who has disappeared. Finding her is easy--Nameless finds her twice--then she disappears for good, and foul play is suspected, possibly by the woman's husband, who hired the detectives in the first place. When the search is launched again, something besides the missing woman is uncovered. Sullivan's announcer-like voice gets your attention, but there's little variation in his pace or his characters. You can be listening one moment, lost the next. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
