An ex-mercenary and an embattled journalist find themselves unlikely allies against a corrupt defense contractor.

An ex-mercenary and an embattled journalist find themselves unlikely allies against a corrupt defense contractor.

Ray Devlin is retired, 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 again face a past he'd hoped to leave behind, as a member of a mercenary force that helped put a brutal South American dictator into power.

Tracy Quinn is an investigative reporter at a struggling Philadelphia newspaper decimated by layoffs and cutbacks. Then one day what appears to be a straightforward homicide - a body left in an abandoned rowhouse - draws her and Devlin together, and ultimately enmeshes both in a conspiracy that stretches over twenty years and reaches to the highest levels of the U.S. government.

Before long, they're both the targets of a ruthless assassin haunted by his own wartime experiences. For Devlin, it could all mean a last shot at redemption. For Tracy, the biggest story of her career might just cost her life.

Wallace Stroby is the real thing, a writer who channels two of the best Raymonds - Chandler and Carver - with his tough, lean prose and 'dirty' realism," in a high-voltage story of murder and corruption — Jonathan Santlofer, author of the bestselling The Death Artist
Wallace Stroby's writing is all muscle, with not an ounce of fat. SOME DIE NAMELESS is propulsive and intelligent, populated by the very best kind of characters: authentic, complicated human beings who are capable of surprising both the reader and themselves — Lou Berney, author of the bestselling Long and Faraway Gone
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 — Gerald Petievich, author of To Live and Die in L.A.
I consider Stroby to be one of the heirs to the great Elmore Leonard in style, substance, and sheer entertainment. — Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
