    This was not quite as good as the first. However, I'm still interested in Nameless' background and I shall continue on.

    This is the second short story that is part of a series by Dean Koontz and I believe it is only available through Amazon. In this one, Nameless (yeah that is his name) is sent out again to stop an evil sociopath. Once again, Nameless is backed by an organization that has fountains of knowledge and funds that the authorities do not have.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.

Once again, Nameless is backed by an organization that has fountains of knowledge and funds that the authorities do not have.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 introduced to Nameless and his mission. With that out of the way for this story we dived right into the meat of it and I enjoyed it so much more. Part of the lure of these stories is Nameless and his backers. We really don't know much about them but that is the fun part of the mystery. How do they know all about these evil doers and what exactly is their purpose? The twist at the end of this story was terrific and put a smile on my face.I wasn't really sold on this series after the first story. I am now with the completion of the second one. I want answers and I look forward to finding these answers in the upcoming stories.

    This one was just okay too. I think I am getting a bit disappointed since Nameless doesn't really need to go toe to toe with the bad guys. They end up caught, he with help disposes of them. We get some clues to his past in this one. I wish all of the bad guys didn't have some weird God complex. The first two in this series sound similar."Photographing the Dead" has Nameless hunting down another serial killer. This one gets off by photographing the men and women he comes across and kills.

The first two in this series sound similar."Photographing the Dead" has Nameless hunting down another serial killer. This one gets off by photographing the men and women he comes across and kills. Nameless trails the killer and we also follow two young women who are set to be married in a few months. We have a sense that if Nameless doesn't stop the killer, these two women are going to be his next victims.Well we get a better sense of Nameless in this one. He also appears to be a Paul Newman hater. For shame Nameless, for shame.“Newman made a number of movies where he relied too much on his looks and charm. But he was sometimes great. You ever see Hud?”He done lost his damn mind. Newman was a snack and he could act. The mysterious Ace of Diamonds is still mysterious. I got nothing on this person or persons yet.The two young women, Mia and Kara love to hike and are off hiking together prior to marrying. Of course they both carry weapons and know how to use them. That is me rolling my eyes. Koontz can never miss a chance to write about guns. I rolled my eyes reading about Nameless's gun of choice too. The writing was okay, I got bored reading about how the serial killer had some pretty big connections. As I said above, the serial killer had a similar mindset to the last guy so I was just okay, you're super evil and superior too, got it. The flow was okay, this one was much shorter so maybe that had something to do with it. I forgot to mention that in this one and last story had a pretty cool illustration. Other than that though, the series is already sounding samey. I wonder if we had a bunch of mystery/thriller authors try to write about Nameless this would be more interesting.The ending is definitely a surprise, got to love how Ace of Diamonds wanted to take care of things. This story leaves things open to the fact that maybe Nameless is starting to remember some things.

    This pulled me in as Nameless continued his drive for bestowing justice on killers and abusers in the most just manner.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 3A vigilante who was part psychic too

    Another quick and fun read, Nameless is a great character and I love how meticulous he is when it comes to the next mission. I could read a hundred of these, and I hope someday I'll get to!
