Summary
  • "The Nameless Detective had told engineer 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. Soon, she'd begin gambling again, running up debts, running away ... This time, it took a week to find her, and she didn't even want to go home, she wanted a divorce. Ethically required to honor the woman's desires, when Nameless reports to Mitch, he refuses to reveal Janice's location." "Krochek's descent into nightmare has begun. It picks up speed when Janice shows up at the agency, beaten, asking to go home ... No one's surprised to learn that she soon disappears again. This time, though, there's blood on the Krochek's kitchen floor."
  • "As Nameless works to find a woman who doesn't want to be found for a man who doesn't seem to care very much about her fate (except to prove he didn't murder her), Jake Runyon, the agency's field operative, investigates a pro bono case for an elderly African American woman who wants to know why her son avoids her and why he's become so secretive and strange. Runyon knows all too well about the real, if not physical, loss of a son. His only hope is that this woman won't suffer the same disappointments."--BOOK JACKET

Summary
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 rose 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. With Janice 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
