I listened to the audio version of this book for my mystery book group discussion. I had heard of Bill Pronzini before because he has been writing mysteries for many years,but I have never read or listened to one of his books. He is also married to author Marcia Muller, whose writing I enjoy. Savages, one of the more recent in his Nameless series, is a good detective story, but it wasn't exactly what I expected. Nameless isn't nameless anymore. His name is Bill and he isn't the harboiled detective I thought he would be. In this book there are two cases being investigated. One is being worked on by Bill, his wife Kerry and his partner Tamara. The other case is being investigated by Jake Runyon and he is more like the Nameless I expected. There was a lot of backstory that wasn't revealed, so I guess I'd better read one of the earlier books in the series.
