Nobody was one of the better murder mysteries I've ever read. It's about a reporter who stumbles upon the body of a rich homeless man and decides to borrow a few objects off of him for further research. With this evidence, a dirty police officer tries to frame him for the murder.
So our lead must walk around with his head down after being disowned by the officer. He hooks up with a young woman in a bad situation, and together, they help each other. This adds a nice touch to the book, even if it is a romance subplot. It actually makes sense.
The plot of the mystery isn't typical, especially since each chapter is told from the first person perspective of someone different. One particular secret is well hidden until the end.
The characters are good because of the many changes in first person.
One thing I can't help but mention is a somewhat odd fixation on the term AC (he uses it at least 12 times). Every time a character gets in a car or a house, they "crank up the AC". This comes off as trying too hard to be descriptive, that doesn't have much to do with the story.
The end is slightly expected, but this does not keep it off the Elite List.
