 Pronzini's Nameless shared the stage with other detectives at least twice. One was, as you mention, with Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone in DOUBLE (1984). Please note that the correct name of Ms. Muller's detective is McCone, not McCrone. Perhaps you altered the name as a form of commentary?

The other Pronzini novel featuring another detective was his collaboration with Collin Wilcox's Lt. Frank Hastings in TWOSPOT.
