Publisher's Summary

In his first chronicled adventure, the Nameless Detective hires on to handle the ransom payoff in a kidnapping case. Financier Louis Martinetti doesn't trust the police to deal with the man who snatched his 9-year-old son from his military prep school, nor is it clear that he trusts the members of his own household. On the appointed evening, Nameless takes a briefcase that contains $300,000 in cash to a secluded location chosen by the kidnapper. Then all hell breaks loose.

Not the Nameless I have come to expect.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am glad I have listened to later titles in the Nameless Detective Series. This first is in series is so different a character that I wouldn't have listened to any more titles in the series if I started with The Snatch. I wanted the whole history to the series but I don't think I can wade through these early titles if they are similar.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Doug Hamilton?

I prefer Nick Sullivan, he has become the voice of Bill, Kerry, Jake, Emily and Tamara.
