Publisher's Summary

Behind a wall of amnesia, he can’t remember anything. Maybe he can’t bear to. Nameless knows only the mission: Directed by the mysterious Ace of Diamonds, he travels the country, turning predators into prey. But the pain in his past can’t hold him back when dark visions of the future lead him toward his greatest test yet. Nameless is closing in on a revelatory endgame in this collection of short thrillers from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz. 

The Lost Soul of the City

A gun. A mission. No memories. Nameless is back to hunt down an architect of chaos in #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz’s return to a landscape of hard-won justice. 

Gentle Is the Angel of Death

To some he’s a medical genius. To others, a twisted angel of mercy with a necessary solution to what he sees as an ugly dilemma. Only one man can help Dr. Death face the evil of his ways.

Kaleidoscope

Nameless is wrestling with more violent visions of the future when his next mission comes with the assurance, This one will be easy. It’s a promise that leaves Nameless dangerously unprepared. 

Light Has Weight, but Darkness Does Not

Instinct and violent visions compel Nameless to embark on an unplanned mission to help a desperate mother and daughter on the run. Why is this rescue so strangely familiar to a man with no memories?

Corkscrew

A terrorist attack in the news leaves Nameless reeling from a disturbing vision. But it’s not a glimpse of the future. It’s a recovered memory that’s opening a window into his mysterious past.

Zero In

This could be the most important mission of Nameless’s life. Because it’s putting him on a collision course with his own past and the nation’s future.

Worthy Follow-up

'Nameless' is a genuinely unique character. He's a wealthy (limitless resources), anonymous (continuously operating under pseudonyms), amnestic (memory intentionally removed), ruthless (content torturing & murdering his targets), ethical (relentlessly fighting Evil), psychic (having visions) 'Truth-seeker' - "Don't call me a Vigilante".
[N.B. He's also a Vigilante]

Regardless, Dean Koontz's character had his fingerprints surgically removed, is directed and backed up by an enigmatic handler named "Ace Of Diamonds" with dozens of co-conspirators, and is blessed with 'That's So Raven'-styled clairvoyant premonitions. The matrix around which these stories are built is laughably ludicrous on it's face.

Koontz is able to make suspension of disbelief surprisingly easy, however. The "guy-at-the-end-of-the-bar" descriptions, dialogue, and motivations.. coupled with unsurpassed imagery.. make these truly incredible (as in.. not credible) missions feel somehow plausible.. and ridiculously entertaining.

Narrator Eduardo Ballerini is above-average on this project. His pacing, timbre, cadence, tone, diction, and voice-acting are all typically commendable. Less fortunately, the sound editors at Audible Studios let production standards slip a bit: Ballerini is allowed to hiss and squeak occasionally (ie. His natural sibilance is a little more noticeable.. to the point that you should avoid earbuds with this one).

This collection is a brilliant option for fans of Dean Koontz's unique combination of action-driven, supernatural, and often uncomfortably realistic fantastical plots. It isn't as technically impressive and doesn't have the same impact of 'Season One', but I rate this compendium of six *very cool* episodes 9 stars out of 10 (naming these collections "Seasons" is spot-on: listening to these stories is like binge-watching a clever beloved Television Program. Each Novella really is like an episode).

[Do yourself a favor and give the first book a listen, too - but you don't absolutely have to in order to enjoy this offering.
Whatever you decide to do, 'Nameless: Season Two' is worth your Credit]

Promising Story, But...

The 1st season was really good, each vignette was satisfying to listen to and the way they tied together was compelling. Season Two, however, felt off right from the start, almost as if written by a different author. The stories had a different feel to them. Season One was setting itself up to be a Jack Reacher style series, and then Season Two ... destroyed it. The individual episodes not as good and then the ending ... well, it ended it. Season Two kind of felt like a contractual obligation that had to be met.

On the plus side, the narrator, Edoardo Ballerini, is excellent. He fully captures the tone of the stories. I may search out other books that he's narrated.

ending

The ending happened too quickly. I thought the author was setting us up for another, final non-episodic book and then it was all over. There can't be another book.

Can't wait to see more of next season

I hope Nameless is going to be around for at least another season or two. I really enjoyed Season 2, almost surreal how some kind of AI is using a video game type platform to infiltrate and control the younger generation. Their behavior is off and just like a switch and this AI can see anything through the eyes of the people they control.

Wow!

That conclusion was the most awesome, as well as totally unexpected, Dean Koontz is in the top 5 of my all time favourite authors!

A fantastic disappointment.

I truly enjoyed Nameless. A great character, lots of heart, plots were interesting and overall just a fantastic read. I would have preferred no second book to this one. It was like the Game Of Thrones…..absolutely terrible ending to what could have been an enduring series.

Worst Koontz book I have ever listened to!

Disappointed in this storyline, It was repetitive, confusing, and way too much violence. I didn't care about Nameless the character, or any of them. I have to care about someone, anyone in a story to enjoy it.

Koontz Continues to Be Excellent

I loved the timely story of those with no moral values being corrected by those with absolute values. Hopefully, those today with no moral absolutes will take a lesson and allow moral principles to prevail. The good will ultimately prevail even if it is only in eternal rest. Hopefully, with the recent emphasis on Independence Day and the founding principles from natural law, lessons will be relearned of the need to protect those principles. The world today is not quite that bad yet and with a change in course we can at least return to a time when absolute values can be heard.

Great story

I enjoyed this story from beginning to end. It's slow unfolding of the different story's where good deeds were done in the name of justice. And then all the time the background story. Who is Nameless? What is he trying to forget? and who are the people directing him to carry out the missions? This story is different and it never gets boring. It's also well narrated.

D@mn good!

Wow, it gets a little old hearing about the same things over and over again, but it was written well that it still keeps you interested and want to keep going. You kinda get a feel for where this book is going and then you’re d@mn that was good. I truly enjoyed this book and the two all together. The story pulls you in really wanting some closure….and you get it!

Should have stopped with 1

This is a longer more drawn out version of season 1, which was already formulaic. Worse: since season 1's ending revealed certain things, it makes no sense in season 2 to pretend they're still mysterious to the reader.

thought provoking, and terrifying. Koontz always amazes me with that combination and how he still leaves me with hope.

Great ending

Spoiler alert….
This is the last entry into the Nameless series, but it was a great ride. We got to learn more about Nameless’ background and I thought it was a great ending to the story. Great job by Koontz to tie up all loose ends.
