A call for help from his old lover Cheryl sends the intrepid Nameless Detective on a journey from his home office in San Francisco to a small mining town in eastern Nevada. Cheryl’s nineteen-year-old son Cody has been accused of rape, though she is sure he is innocent. As he begins his investigation, Nameless encounters suspicion and hostility from the locals and stonewalling from local law enforcement. Before long, he has been lied to, threatened, and shot at. Drug deals, burglaries, and theft, along with a cast of vindictive and unhelpful residents complicate his attempts to solve the case.
