An ex-mercenary and an embattled journalist find themselves unlikely allies against a corrupt defense contractor.
'Some Die Nameless is a superbly entertaining thriller full of hard truths about what happens when the shadow world is exposed to the light. Stroby's subtle, straightforward style is pitch perfect.' Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author
Ex-mercenary Ray Devlin is living a simple life off the grid in Florida, when a visit from an old colleague stirs some bad memories - and ends with a gunshot. Soon Devlin is forced to face a past he'd hoped to leave behind, as a member of a private military force that helped put a brutal South American dictator in power.
Tracy Quinn is an investigative journalist at a struggling Philadelphia newspaper. What appears at first to be a straightforward homicide draws her and Devlin together, ultimately entangling them in a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the US government.
Before long, they become the targets of a ruthless assassin haunted by his own wartime memories. For Devlin, it could mean a last shot at redemption. For Tracy, the biggest story of her career might just cost her her life.
Praise for Wallace Stroby
Kick-ass crime fiction. - George Pelecanos
Lean, poetic prose...and smart dialogue reminiscent of Robert B. Parker or Elmore Leonard. For fans of noir, [Stroby] is among the best in the current breed. - Boston Globe
Wallace Stroby is the new Donald Westlake.
I consider Stroby to be one of the heirs to the great Elmore Leonard in style, substance, and sheer entertainment. - Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
