One of the reasons I love these books is that I can get through one of them in about 6 hours reading time At most They re also usually fun and interesting Who the heck knows what a bindlestiff is I do, now.This one is about hobos and trains and sisterly love Very quaint, the portrayal of hoboing Could have lived without the quaint portrayal of librarians, however grr

    4. They can t all be home runs Right Nameless gets his license back and his first case is to find his clients missing father because of an inheritance The father was seen in a newspaper article about hobos Otherwise known as bindlestiffs It was a little predictable but now so much so that it was a hug detractor Nice little twist with the sister and her first husband The hobo jungle and the well scene were really well done.

    8. Boy, has Nameless gotten beat up in the last 2 books I ve read in this series I realize that s usual for a PI series, but good grief In this book, the word bindlestiff refers to a hobo who rides the rails, and Nameless has a client whose father has become one, and she wants him found because he has an inheritance Our hero begins the search, and through several coincidences some detecting involved, but coincidences , figures out the big picture This one was a bit of stretch for me, and I think I [...]

    9. What the hell is a bindlestiff A weird title but an action packed story Nameless heads out to Oroville looking for a woman s father who has become a hobo He gets than he bargained for on this missing person case not once but twice I couldn t connect the dots as fast as Nameless on this one.

    10. A missing person s search leads Nameless to yet another murder, and this time he almost buys the farm himself Quick read developing of the back story which keeps me coming back for Most of these books are out of print so I m having to go through various resources to track them down.
