Product Description

About the Author

David Baldacci is a worldwide bestselling novelist. With his books published in over 45 languages and in more than 80 countries, and with over 110 million copies in print, he is one of the world's favorite storytellers. David Baldacci is also the cofounder, along with his wife, of the Wish You Well Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting literacy efforts across America. Still a resident of his native Virginia, he invites you to visit him at www.DavidBaldacci.com, and his foundation at www.WishYouWellFoundation.org, and to look into its program to spread books across America at www.FeedingBodyandMind.com.

Kathy Reichs is the author of eighteen New York Times bestselling novels featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. Like her protagonist, Reichs is a forensic anthropologist—one of fewer than one hundred ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. A professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she is a former vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. Reichs’s own life, as much as her novels, is the basis for the TV show Bones, one of the longest-running series in the history of the FOX network.

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 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.

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!

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.

We know that they are each good authors but they meld in this work almost seamlessly and produce a good
mystery not easily solved. It did not need to be done so why did they do it? Did they fall out over it? The questions
it raises fall outside the story as each of them working alone could have produced a work of equal interest.

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.

I love both David Baldacci and Jeffery Deaver, so thought I'd give the book a go. Considering that so many authors contributed, the book reads well and there are no 'halts', the joins between authors being seamless. A good read, not one that kept me up reading until the early hours, but very enjoyable.

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.
