This is the second installment in this series. Nameless continues doing what he knows best as a vigilante. This time he is after psycho photographer who is targeting random tourists and hikers. This story was enjoyable too as the first one. Fast-paced and short too.
This story has still not given us any idea about the background of Nameless.
I have to say that I did enjoy this book much more than the first offering and now I am definitely intrigued by this series. The first book was set up as we get i ...more

I am hooked on this series - hope it continues. Who is Nameless? Who does he work for? Why is his memory only 2 years? What is his background? I love how he metes out karmic justice. These are novellas - so they are perfect for short trips, etc.
I liked when some parts of his memories returned which gave me an idea of what could have been his personal life.
This book left me eager to get to book 3

Dean Koontz delivers up another serviceable thriller, minus the thrills, in his series of novellas from Amazon revolving around the amnesiac character, Nameless.
Like its predecessor, Photographing the Dead is quick, easy read, one that doesn’t ask a lot of the reader and delivers just as little in return. This time around, Nameless is playing mind games with Palmer Oxenwald, a serial killer who has a passion for photography in ...more
Photographing the Dead is part of a compelling, and highly addictive series by Dean Koontz- about a highly skilled 'killer' dubbed 'Nameless'. Nameless has retrograde amnesia and does not recall anything beyond 2 years prior. 'Nameless' is a highly skilled assassin, and he acts in 'vengeance' taking odd jobs from his handler, only in the name of 'revenge'. Each tale in these short, but fast paced novellas surround a different scenario where 'nameless' is involved t ...more
He did not.
In his 1981 book HOW TO WRITE BEST-SELLING FICTION, Koontz advises writers to "[h]it your hero with startling and/or frightening complications, one after the other. Be tough on him" (132).
