Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than twenty New York Times bestselling authors team up to create a first-rate serial novel — a collaboration that combines the skills of America’s greatest storytellers to produce a 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. 

 

From the Introduction of No Rest for the Dead:

There is always that case, the one that keeps me awake at night, the one that got away. It’ll always be there, gnawing at the edges of my mind. It doesn’t matter that ten years have passed, it doesn’t matter that the case is officially closed. An innocent woman was executed, I was the one who helped make it happen, and on the sad night when the needle was inserted into her arm, injecting her with death, part of my life ended too.

            It never felt right, never made sense. Sure, there was motive and opportunity, there was the physical evidence. But if you met her, if you knew her the way I got to know her . . . It wasn’t until later, after I’d taken a step back from the case, that I realized it had angles I hadn’t seen, layers I hadn’t uncovered, back when it mattered, back when I could have saved her….

Review:

"Twenty-six writers and six narrators join forces in the audio edition of this twisted tale of greed, betrayal, and murder. It's been a decade since Rosemary Thomas was executed for the murder of her husband. But former police detective Jon Nunn — whose investigation led to the arrest and conviction of Rosemary — is still convinced she was innocent. With guilt driving him to the bottle, Nunn sets out to find the real killer, justice for Rosemary, and maybe a little redemption for himself. While employing a variety of writers works well, the use of multiple readers falls flat. Although each narrator delivers a fine performance, the production jumps between readers in a way that can be disruptive to listeners. That isn't to say this isn't an enjoyable, fun listen; it is. But the story would flow better if the publisher had stuck with one narrator. A Touchstone hardcover. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Many of today’s leading American mystery and thriller writers have recently joined together to form a club for the purpose of publishing serial novels and anthologies. As of today, more than twenty bestselling mystery authors have joined the club and have collaborated on No Rest for the Dead.

When Christopher Thomas, a curator at San Francisco’s Museum of Fine Arts, is murdered and the decaying mass of his body is found in an iron maiden in Berlin, his wife Rosemary Thomas is the primary suspect. Long suffering under Christopher’s unfaithful ways, Rosemary 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. Along with financier Tony Olsen, he plans to gather everyone who was there the night Christopher died and finally uncover the truth about what happened that night. Could it have been the ne’er do well brother Peter Hausen, interested in his sister’s trust having run through his own; the curatorial assistant Justine Olengard, used and betrayed by Christopher; the artist Belle who turned down his advances only to see her career suffer a setback; or someone else all together? No Rest for the Dead is a thrilling accomplishment that only our very best could achieve.

As David Baldacci writes in his introduction: “The lineup of writers who have contributed to this mystery is akin to the Murderer’s Row the New York Yankees had during the hallowed 1930s. There is not a weak spot in the bunch. You will be enthralled as much by the seamless flow of the story as it passes from mind to mind of each Creator, as you will by the quality of the tale. While they deliver their own signature brand of storytelling to the novel, it is startling how these writers, several of whom are friends of mine, have weaved a yarn that seems to be the product of one mind, one imagination, albeit on steroids of such strength that even major league baseball would ban them, and that is indeed saying something.”
