Review

"'No Rest for the Dead’ is more than just a stunt. Anyone who loves a good mystery will love this book and to top it off proceeds go to a good cause.”

--CNN.com, 'Hot Summer Reads'

“The plot was gritty, suspenseful, and compelling. It was definitely everything I would expect from authors I've come to love, and authors I'm hoping to get to know better.”

--Freshfiction.com

“It's a fast-paced mystery that will have the reader guessing until the final chapter."

--Blogcritics.org

"The end result is an interesting mystery that deftly weaves the contributions of these great authors into a surprisingly cogent and surprising mystery."

--NewMysteryReader.com

“There's a little bit of suspense, a few instances of character insight, a little action, a little bit of forensics. The book reads straight with a consistent voice."

--Suspense Magazine

“An A-list collaboration.”

--Sacramento Bee

Product Description

In this New York Times bestseller, twenty-six renowned thriller authors team up to create a first-rate serial novel—a collaboration that combines the skills of America’s greatest storytellers to produce a single gripping, spellbinding mystery.

“The lineup of writers who have contributed to this mystery is akin to the Murderers’ Row of the 1927 New York Yankees. There is not a weak spot in the bunch.” —David Baldacci, from the Introduction

Alexander McCall Smith. Sandra Brown. Faye Kellerman. J.A. Jance. Jeffery Deaver. Kathy Reichs. Lisa Scottoline. Jeff Lindsay. These are only a handful of the names that make up the all-star lineup of authors behind No Rest for the Dead, a tale of vengeance, greed, and love that flows seamlessly, in the words of David Baldacci, “as it passes from one creator’s mind to the next.”

When Christopher Thomas, a ruthless curator at San Francisco’s McFall Art Museum, is murdered and his decaying body is found in an iron maiden in a Berlin museum, his wife, Rosemary, is the primary suspect, and she is tried, convicted, and executed. Ten years later, Jon Nunn, the detective who cracked the case, is convinced that the wrong person was put to death. In the years since the case was closed, he’s discovered a web of deceit and betrayal surrounding the Thomases that could implicate any number of people in the crime. With the help of the dead woman’s friend, he plans to gather everyone who was there the night Christopher died and finally uncover the truth, suspect by suspect. Solving this case may be Nunn’s last chance for redemption…but the shadowy forces behind Christopher’s death will stop at nothing to silence the past forever.

In this innovative storytelling approach, each of these twenty-five bestselling writers brings their distinctive voice to a chapter of the narrative, building the tension to a shocking, explosive finale. No Rest for the Dead is a thrilling, page-turning accomplishment that only America’s very best authors could achieve.

I circled "No Rest For The Dead" for a couple of weeks before I decided to buy it. I couldn't make up my mind if a novel written by 26 different authors was a good thing or not. The product description sounded interesting and the list of authors certainly was promising.The introduction written by David Baldacci had nothing but praise for the novel and the writers,I must admit at this point I was thinking the book some version of "Murder On The Orient Express" but Baldacci claimed there would be no Agatha Christie ending. The book is basically two parts;the first deals with events leading up to the execution and the second part,events after the deed. It started out with a bang there were plenty of suspects,the dead guy wasn't a nice man. We have a self absorbed brother, shady lawyers, a loan shark and his minions, assorted girl friends/ one night stands/wives and a bunch of other unsavory characters. Unfortunately the primary characters weren't as interesting. The novel was a series of highs and lows for me. You would hit a couple of chapters that took your interest and then a couple that let you down. I could not warm up to the main character, an ex-drunk,ex-detective, his only goal trying to right this wrong. I wanted to like this book but by the time it was half over my interest had bottomed out,it just wasn't hitting the mark for me. I think this was a fault of the plot rather than the author(S),you can't fault the writing in this book.For me this novel was just OK.

Rather than a collection of stories from various well known thriller writers this is" one story written by many". The initial response is of a possibly innocent woman who has been convicted of her husband's death surprisingly quickly.The evidence is for the most part circumstantial and viewed from other angles should actually have help clear her. It is she, through a written letter prior to her execution, who calls out for justice, an investigation into who the actual murderer could be. There are many possible murderers with interesting reasons for wanting Rosemary dead and the story is a collaboration of writers' talents to swirl then clear the facts of her death. Get ready to enjoy this murder mystery to discover who is the actual victim and who the killer!

With 20 diferent authors this has got to be one of a kind. I thoroughly enjoyed it. With each new chapter you get a new author so you really don't know where each chapter is taking you. I highly recommend this book. There are some authors that were not known to me but after looking their names up in the library it has opened me up to some new reading material.

I found the change in writers a bit too much, too often. Although an interesting story line, the characters didn't seem to get fully fleshed out. As you might expect, some authors had terrific chapters while others, well ....................

Overall I couldn't honestly recommend it but I did enjoy it enough to finish it.
