Jackpot

(1990)
(Book 17 in the Nameless Detective series)
A novel by

 
 
Bill Pronzini's "Nameless Detective" - the San Francisco-based, Italian-American, slightly overweight, thoroughly charming favorite of mystery aficionados, whose name is never revealed - returns with one of his cleverest, most intense cases.

Why would a successful, good-looking young man, who had just won two hundred thousand dollars at a Lake Tahoe casino, kill himself? That's the question Nameless asks himself when he finds a friend's brother dead--an apparent suicide, was more than luck involved in his windfall? Or was his good fortune reason enough for murder?

"Pronzini is a pro."
- The New York Times
The investigation takes Nameless in-side the seamy and dangerous world of high-stakes gambling and mob-run casinos - and into the middle of a com-plex scam that has left at least one man in his grave, with others, including Nameless, odds-on favorites to follow.
