Reviews Photographing the Dead (Nameless #2)

  • Char
    This was not quite as good as the first. However, I'm still interested in Nameless' background and I shall continue on.

    Rating: 3.5/5.0Genre:ThrillerThis is the second installment in this series. Nameless continues doing what he knows best as a vigilante. This time he is after psycho photographer who is targeting random tourists and hikers. This story was enjoyable too as the first one. Fast-paced and short too.This story has still not given us any idea about the background of Nameless.

    This is the second short story that is part of a series by Dean Koontz and I believe it is only available through Amazon. In this one, Nameless (yeah that is his name) is sent out again to stop an evil sociopath. Once again, Nameless is backed by an organization that has fountains of knowledge and funds that the authorities do not have.I have to say that I did enjoy this book much more than the first offering and now I am definitely intrigued by ...

    4.5 stars! This one had a very fitting end, I was quite pleased. :) There's also a tiny peek into what I think *maybe* might a bit of Nameless's own past. We shall see. Another excellent narration by Edoardo Ballerini, who is new to me as reader, but he sets the perfect tone for Nameless.
  • Obsidian
    This one was just okay too. I think I am getting a bit disappointed since Nameless doesn't really need to go toe to toe with the bad guys. They end up caught, he with help disposes of them. We get some clues to his past in this one. I wish all of the bad guys didn't have some weird God complex. The first two in this series sound similar."Photographing the Dead" has Nameless hunting down another serial killer. This one gets off by photographing th...

    This pulled me in as Nameless continued his drive for bestowing justice on killers and abusers in the most just manner.I liked when some parts of his memories returned which gave me an idea of what could have been his personal life.This book left me eager to get to book 3A vigilante who was part psychic too

    Enjoy #2 and still intrigued by the guy Nameless. This guy Palmer Oxenwald was a nut case!🤪The narrator is really good too!

    5 stars audio and story.
  • Armand Rosamilia
    Another quick and fun read, Nameless is a great character and I love how meticulous he is when it comes to the next mission. I could read a hundred of these, and I hope someday I'll get to!
  • FanFiAddict
    More of a 3.5+, but another enjoyable entry in the collection.
  • Henry
    This second installment in Koontz' "Nameless" series is very good and even better than the first.
  • Roz
    3.5 starsLiked it slightly less than the first, the inner monologues were a little bit too long for how short these books are.
  • Dee Cherry
    Part 2 kept me reading to see how this villain would meet his end. Mild suspense, good ending
  • ChopinFC
    4 Stars (Highly Entertaining)Photographing the Dead is part of a compelling, and highly addictive series by Dean Koontz- about a highly skilled 'killer' dubbed 'Nameless'. Nameless has retrograde amnesia and does not recall anything beyond 2 years prior. 'Nameless' is a highly skilled assassin, and he acts in 'vengeance' taking odd jobs from his handler, only in the name of 'revenge'. Each tale in these short, but fast paced novellas surround a ...
  • Michael Hicks
    My review of PHOTOGRAPHING THE DEAD can be found at High Fever Books.Dean Koontz delivers up another serviceable thriller, minus the thrills, in his series of novellas from Amazon revolving around the amnesiac character, Nameless. Like its predecessor, Photographing the Dead is quick, easy read, one that doesnt ask a lot of the reader and delivers just as little in return. This time around, Nameless is playing mind games with Palmer Oxenwald, a s...
  • Chris Snider
    Great new series by Dean. It's kind of like reading one book in 6 parts? I wonder if he WILL do a full novel with Nameless?
  • Christina
    Lacking in comparison to the first bookI had hoped for more insight on Namelesss past or more information on his power but there was very little in comparison to book one. I found the villains sexual arousal to violence quite cringe-worthy, I know its clearly not meant to be normal but I feel like it was not written well. I also did not like how Nameless decided to interact/confront the antagonist multiple times. It was a pretty stale read but it...
  • Chris DiLeo
    So, I read this second installment in the Nameless series much faster than the first one. That is in part because this story is more interesting, has more moving parts, and has a better villain, but my quick reading is also because I wanted to see if Koontz was going to challenge himself a bit.He did not.In his 1981 book HOW TO WRITE BEST-SELLING FICTION, Koontz advises writers to "[h]it your hero with startling and/or frightening complications, ...

    This is the second short story in the Nameless series. I dont usually read short stories and now I know why. The main character is a bit of a mystery since he has amnesia and really has no idea who he is or what happened in his past. On top of that, he has the ability to see into the future. He has contact with Ace of Diamonds who is the person who sets Nameless up with the assignments to punish people who are evil murderers and abusers. Of cours...

    This was a little better than the first. It had more substance to it and yes I understand that these are short stories and are not going to have the fully developed in depth character or bad guys. But these books seriously lack in the character development. I have so many unanswered questions about the bad guy in this one... answers I will never get, though it looks a bit more promising about finding answers for the main character.
  • Jennifer Roth
    Weird Story LineThis book was just ok I'm my opinion. It has a pretty weird story line to follow. The book was short and felt like there should have been more. Jury is still out on if I would recommend this book to anyone to read
  • Lena
    This is for all the little animals. Great ending. Im glad it hurt and took a long, terrifying, time. “This is for all the little animals.” Great ending. I’m glad it hurt and took a long, terrifying, time.
  • Ann
    Nameless is an enigma and an interesting character to follow.
  • Ozzie Silvers
    This pulled me in as Nameless continued his strive for justice. Killing those that have killed others. an eye for an eye type of justice. As a writer with a novel out about a man that loses all traces of his past I found Dean's approach to this interesting and inspiring. This book left me eager to get to book 3 which I started immediately upon finishing this one.
