"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 25 best-selling writers brings their distinctive voice to a chapter of the narrative, building the tension to a shocking, explosive finale.

Don't download it
What would have made No Rest for the Dead better?
A refund of my credit
What will your next listen be?
Either the new Lee Child book or a Clive Cussler one.
How could the performance have been better?
It's just my opinion but I like the same voice telling the story from start to finish and this one confused me when women were reading parts previously read by men and then men as women.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
No, it was boring. I was confused, bored and disappointed especially as the writers have done other works that I LOVE but not this one.
Any additional comments?
Don't wast a credit on this book, sorry.

Not as good as expected
I was so excited to download a real who-dunnit by some of the greatest authors ever but... I don't know. It was good, but not as good as I had expected. I never really felt a significant connection to any of the charachters. It felt choppy, and not that surprising at the end. Not bad for a summer listen, but there's better out there for sure!

Great work by most of my favorite authors!
This was an amazing book with chapters written by different authors. There was continuity throughout the book which must be hard with so many writing styles but it was an incredible story!
