In a once-in-a-generation collaboration of New York Times bestselling authors, the genres greatest storytellers combine their skills to create one incredible, spellbinding mystery. NO REST FOR THE DEAD: A Mystery (Touchstone Hardcover / Simon & Schuster; July 5, 2011; $24.99; ISBN: 978-1-4516-0737-6) is a thrilling, page-turning accomplishment that only our very best could achieve.

When Christopher Thomas, a ruthless curator at San Francisco’s McFall Art Museum, is murdered and his decaying body is found inside 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. Could the true culprit have been Rosemary’s ne’er do well brother Peter Heusen, interested in his sister’s trust fund having run through his own or the museum curatorial assistant Justine Olengard, used and betrayed by Christopher himself? Or the struggling artist Belle, who turned down his advances only to see her career suffer a setback? Or someone else entirely? 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.

This is the first time so many major bestselling authors have been involved in a single project—R.L. Stine, Jeffery Deaver, Diana Gabaldon, Tess Gerritsen, Kathy Reichs, Faye Kellerman, J.A. Jance, Sandra Brown, Alexander McCall Smith, and Lisa Scottoline, to name just a few. The introduction by David Baldacci truly sets the tone for the twenty-six authors to weave their magic.

In this innovative storytelling approach, each writer brings their distinctive voice to a chapter of the narrative, building the tension to a shocking, explosive finale. NO REST FOR THE DEAD is the kind of thrilling page-turner that only today’s very best authors could achieve.
