Bill Pronzini has been nominated for, or won, every prize offered to crime fiction writers, including the 2008 Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America. It is no wonder, then, that Detroit Free Press said of him: “It’s always nice to see masters at work. Pronzini’s clear style seamlessly weaves [storylines] together, turning them into a quick, compelling read.” He lives and writes in California, with his wife, the crime novelist Marcia Muller.
“Pronzini is a pro at PI Fiction: he never cheats on the reader, respecting the conventions of the hard-boiled detective stories and puzzle mysteries he employs so well.”—Library Journal on Schemers
“Pronzini is a greatly gifted storyteller who never fails to deliver topflight entertainment.”—The San Diego Union-Tribune on Fever
“There are several reasons why Bill Pronzini’s series centered on the Nameless Detective has been so successful for so long. Primary among them is that Pronzini is a genuine storyteller, and he hasn’t disappointed us yet… Nightcrawlers, is beautifully plotted, realistic, up-to-the-minute and sometimes scary. There’s real suspense and real danger.”—Statesman Journal on Nightcrawlers
“Pronzini constructs his sturdy plot with top-quality materials, including spit-polished dialogue and loathsome villains who actually giggle as they crack their victims’ bones. And Bill is still a terrific hero.”—The New York Times Book Review on Nightcrawlers
