Anyone who crosses Sheriff Russell Soakes is dead, missing, or warned. One of them is a single mother trying to protect her children but bracing herself for the worst....more
Mystery Thriller + Short Story
A good start for a series. We follow a nameless character, I think he calls himself nameless too! He is a vigilante though he rejects to be called that. Ace of Diamonds (Another unknown character) gives him this mission to take down a corrupt cop.
The story is linear but has lots of mystery to it. Of course, we don't get answers to who Nameless is and why is he doing what he is doing. It makes things more intriguing to start the next book in the ...more
The above is the reason I quit reading Koontz in the first place. It seemed to me that all of his books were the same. After WATCHERS and a few other Koontz books made me quickly fall in love with him, the re-use of that same formula over and over again made me fall out of love with him, just as quickly.
I like the mystery surrounding Nameless, and I'm in to see what happens next.
Ace of Diamonds is an agency outside of the law, but what side of justice do they take. Nameless is their agent but is he a gun for hire or a vigilante one man army.
In a well orchestrated operation this guy alights from a bus and follows his preplanned instructions. Since this is the first in a series of short stories we do not know if he is light or dark. However, his status as an agent is bizarre as amnesia and a lack of memories makes him almost an automaton.
I used to be a voracious reader of Dean Koontz back in the 90s and early part of the 2000s, but fell off the bandwagon around the time By the Light of the Moon and a string of other clunkers came out and he traded the intriguing and unfinished Christopher Snow series for the much too-earnest and goofball comedy of Odd Thomas. Koontz was growing increasingly saccharine and annoying at the turn of the century, putting a ...more
Nameless, Book 1
By: Dean Koontz
Narrated by: Edoardo Ballerini
Nameless deals with a corrupt Sheriff and associate. Dozens of missing people, mostly young girls, have gone missing since the Sheriff came into power. Great story and narration.
There are some good moments. Actually, the best parts are when the main character has visions of occurrences in the future or from the past.
This is the first of a series of short stories, especially for Amazon. As I’m a Amazon Prime subscriber, I have access to this series (and several ...more
In this first Nameless story, the target is a pedophile sheriff. He has been victimizing people for a long time, destroying the proof of his deeds. ...more
I don’t know who’s pulling Nameless’s strings but they’re kind of my heroes. Justice is sweet.
Great narration as well, and I’m already into the next one! ...more
I liked this first story of this series but I wasn't blown away. I think I will enjoy the subsequent books because this short story was part set up ...more
Nameless is a vigilante that cannot remember his own past. He has visions of strangers’ past and future. In this installment, he helps a widowed woman and her two small children by taking care of the sheriff that has forced them live in fear. The sheriff is an awful monster of a person and Nameless really makes him pay.
Because of the ...more
Thank god that ended well. I generally trust Dean Koontz but when the German Shepherd came up I hugged my own German Shepherd and hoped for the best.
This is the start of an exciting series of the Unnamed Man bringing justice.
This book introduces you to the character, Nameless, who suffers from amnesia and doesn’t know his real name or anything about his past. He is hired by an agency to carry out missions to eliminate bad people. Nameless also has moments of clairvoyance seeing snippets from the past and the future. He can see what his actions may or may not do.
In this book, Nameless eliminates a child predator. ...more
Our main character 'nameless' is a killer...but he kills bad people. He is a nomad with amnesia (he has only two years of memories) and a penchant for subterfuge and weapons.
He receives his missions from an unknown source and he gets results!
Think Jack Reacher meets Jason Bourne!
