The first story in the Nameless series, In the Heart of the Fire, did not disappoint. The main character had some past trauma that has resulted in complete amnesia. He can recall none of his life before two years ago, including his name. He receives digital communications from someone called the Ace of Diamonds who he has never met and does not remember how he first came into contact. Together they form a kind of vigilante squad that seeks out the worst evil in the world and take whatever action necessary to eradicate it. Since the story is so short, there is not much character development. Nameless is a very compelling character, though, and I am hoping we will learn much more about him in the coming stories. In this one, Nameless has been sent to a rural Texas town to take on a sheriff and deputy who are pedophiles and murderers, preying on unsuspecting victims who live in their county or who are just travelling through. The story has many of the hallmarks you come to expect from Koontz. The good and evil are black and white, with the evil being inhumanly terrifying. So far there is just hint of the otherworld as Nameless has flashes of visions, not only of the future, but also of past events where he was not present. And there is a dog: this time a German Shepard. The plot moves at a fast pace and tension build quickly. I read it in on sitting in less than hour. I can imagine that it would be easy to convert these stories to one hour TV shows. It is excellent entertainment. I am looking forward to the next one.

Typical Dean Koontz, straight to the point and heart of the story. Very quick read but so engrossing I didn't want to put it down! Brilliantly written as always 🙌.
The plot was very engaging both in terms of its mystery and drama. However, I was initially a little surprised by the 'supernatural' aspect relating to 'Nameless' (the main character; a nomadic vigilante with only a short term memory but clearly possessing both knowledge and skills in how to track and kill people). However, this 'supernatural' aspect did not spoil the story in any way and I suspect (and hope) that more will be revealed about it in the following 5 novellas.
So overall, a terrific novella, full of atmosphere, menace, and drama. It has certainly heightened my expectations for the next story in the series!
Enjoyed it as the action was fast and characters possible.
Change from the usual shootouts and car chases.
The characters are clear cut and their actions lead the reader cleanly through the events in a very understandable and concise manner.
Typical Koontz it also has a dog in it which I love about him.
I was expecting more. Disappointed to say the least.
