Nameless wasn't supposed to come into the office on Mondays; or even answer the phone. On this Monday, he did both. The call was from Barney Rivera - once a friend, now despised - at Great Western Insurance. Against his better judgment, Nameless agreed to meet with him. The investigation was relatively simple: a multimillionaire rare books collector had reported the theft of eight valuable volumes. From a locked library to which he has the only key. The books were all crime fiction and suspense - a locked-room mystery about mysteries.
