The Mercy of Snakes
A series of suspicious deaths in a retirement home draws Nameless into the confidence of a terrified former resident—and into the dark heart of a shocking conspiracy. In part five of the Nameless series, it’s time to hunt.

Had to go to the gym to workout, which was a welcome break from this series. Honestly this is just boring. At this point what is the purpose of Nameless. The guy barely does anything. He does kill someone in this story, but other than that, why would someone need to have amnesia to do this. His "powers" are not in play in this one either. We hear more about the purple blue eyed woman and I now hate the colors purple and blue.
Nameless recurring visions and flashbacks hit him more and more..
Again he had to confront the dark side wrapped up in human nature..
Old people are murdered because of their money, and the killer agents cannot be catch by the law!!
Only Nameless manifests himself as the avenger bringing justice to light!!
Good and fast paced, a genuine page turner!!
At this point in the series my reaction is ho-hum. I really could copy and paste my review for the last three books. It is just a repeat of the same thing. Nameless is backed by this all powerful agency and they perform an act ...more

Each tale in these short, but fast paced novellas surround a different scenario where 'nameless' is involved to right a prev ...more

At any rate, not much to say about the characters or plot, as they are often similar across these books. Nevertheless, I think Koontz has tapp ...more
This time around Nameless needs to stop a serial killer from killing the elderly in the fine estate neighborhood that he owns so their family members can get their inheritance.
This one didn’t do it for me. The concept was lost and there was no suspense or thrill in this one. Definitely my least favorite of this series so far.
One plus? Nameless seems to be remembering things, but can’t piece anything together and I ...more
