I read this book many years ago, and I'm reviewing it only to say that a previous reviewer had said that the book is not as good as others in the Nameless Detective series. I think it is a very strong addition. It would probably be better if the reader first read some of the Lt. Hastings novels by Collin Wilcox to get a feel for his character. Also, Nameless doesn't really have his name revealed. Hastings calls him Bill, but nowhere in the novel does it reveal that this is his true name. Sharon McCone, Marcia Muller's character calls him Wolf, but nowhere does she say that this is his real name. The Nameless Detective novels are my favorite private investigator novels, and the Lt. Hastings novels are my second favorite police procedural novels (second only to Ed McBain). I do agree that "Double" is a better novel, but "Twospot" is worth the reader's time.
