No Rest for the Dead
No Rest for the Dead | David Baldacci, Kathy Reichs, Alexander McCall Smith, Et Al, Jeffrey Deaver
6 posts | 5 read | 4 to read
When Christopher Thomas, a curator at San Francisco's Museum of Fine Arts, is murdered and his decaying body is found in an iron maiden in Berlin, his wife Rosemary Thomas is the prime 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, becomes 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 fateful evening. Could it have been the ne'er do well brother Peter Hausen, interested in his sister's trust fund having got 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 Deadis a thrilling, page-turning accomplishment that only the very best thriller writers could achieve.

All the writers who created this thriller have thought and written as one.It is as if the idea originated simultaneously in all authors.Whatever happened, the result is there.Breathtaking start.Tense events that are constantly escalating and an end that I personally did not expect.

This is a single story written by 26 authors for charity. It‘s a quick read (9 hr audiobook)and the audiobook includes the author‘s name at the beginning of a chapter. I‘m not disappointed I read it, but I‘m glad it didn‘t stretch out any longer.

This book has a unique perspective, every chapter of the book has been written by different crime authors. Some get more than one to write but as you progress through the story you need to keep in mind it was written by different authors. Authors who never saw any of the other chapters just had a rough outline of what had to happen.

The only negative is I would think a sequel maybe hard to organise.
