Format: Hardcover
Twenty six authors came together in order to write an action-packed thriller and the result is No Rest for the Dead. The original idea was to create a short story collection, but since this is not an especially commercial genre and the proceeds were meant to go to charity, it has been decided that it'd be better if all of them worked together to write a novel.
If you asked me I wouldn't say that this book is something special, however it is a well-crafted book that moves at a fine pace and which manages to keep the reader's interest alive from first page to last. And it is funny, in more than one ways; especially when, let's say, author number one, decides to make the life of author number two a little bit hard, by driving the story in a completely different direction from the one at hand, and thus make him or her come up with some answers in questions that were not there in the first place. As a result there are many twists and turns and just when one thinks that he's found the solution to the riddle, something turns up that brings things upside down.
But let's take things from the start, or rather from the end; today. Following the last instructions or, maybe we should say, respecting the last wishes of Rosemary Thomas, a curator of a San Francisco Museum, her closest friends and relatives, as well as some other people who were in one way or another connected with her, meet at her workplace to celebrate the anniversary of her death. Rosemary has been tried, found guilty and executed ten years before for the murder of her husband Christopher. All the evidence at the time was overwhelmingly against her and no one, or almost no one, had any doubts that she committed the crime. Two men though were not so sure that she was guilty.

I bought this book as I enjoy reading the authors individually. But this book was avery difficult read, confusing in some places with so many different styles in the same story.
Its a shame, could have been a page turner!

I bought the book mostly out of curiosity, for the concept of the different writers.

The plot is not that much, and if you' ve read enough mysteries, you get all the hints early enough. So, the story is so-and-so.

But the editing is seamless. The different styles are there, each author gives something different, of course, but the story flows so naturally, as if written by one person.

I believe the next one will be a really great story.

Hard to believe this was not written by the one person. The transitions between authors were seamless - I can't imagine how it was done but it certainly works. Kept me guessing to the end as much as any other Jeffery Deaver novel. If you are a fan of any of the authors listed you'll enjoy this.

I was quite sceptical about this book considering the number of authors contributing, but I really enjoyed it. You couldn't tell that more than.1 author had written it. Well worth a read.

Grabbed me from the beginning, especially as you know each chapter has been written by a different author. A book that could have gone in several different directions and still been very belivable even made me think how I might have ended it. Will be recommending it to my book club.

Format: Paperback
When I picked up this book and realised that it had been penned by no less than twenty-six writers, I nearly didn't bother starting it. The authors in question could so easily have made a dogs dinner of this story. However, I was pleasantly surprised because it was actually a very good read. The story kicks off by introducing us to the diary of Jon Nunn. Ex detective Nunn tells us that there is a case from ten years previous that keeps him awake at night. It concerns a certain Rosemary Thomas who was executed for the murder of her husband Christopher Thomas. Nunn still has doubts as to wether she really did commit the grisly murder. Turns out her husband went missing for several weeks before his body was found decomposing in an iron maiden that had been shipped from the USA to the German Historical Museum of Berlin. All the evidence at the time pointed to Rosemary - but had the authorities got it terribly wrong??
Each writer brings their own unique talents to the developing mystery and for the most part the chapters flow cohesively. It was far from perfect but I found it to be an engaging, easy read that was made more appealing by the joy of seeing the different writing styles in evidence with each new chapter.

Sadly for me this was not as good as I was expecting it to be. The plot is great and well thought out and did keep me guessing with some twists and turns along the way. However everything felt a little rushed the characters also felt under developed, maybe because so many authors wrote them so for me something did not quite add up there. It also felt like there was not much of a flow between the chapters which again is probably due to multiple authors writing it. Overall it is a good read for any crime fan but it is far from perfect.
