A novel by

 
 
Following his success in Sentinels, "Nameless", who has been praised as the "thinking person's detective", is back! Caught between two difficult investigations - one personal and one professional. "Nameless" has become increasingly obsessed with his investigation into the suicide of his estranged friend and former partner, Eberhardt, when he is hired by a Santa Fe businessman to find his ex-wife. The job soon takes on frightening dimensions when the client turns up dead. Then disturbing facts about the couple's past begin to emerge. Both cases lead "Nameless" down a twisted path strewn with the illusions people adopt for themselves and perceive in others. Ultimately "Nameless" is torn between the two cases and must make a painful choice. Illusions is a superb psychological mystery that delves deeply into human imagination.
