Author Info
Sandra Brown
Sandra Brown's list of professions prior to her career as a popular romantic suspense writer include model, weather forecaster and television feature reporter for "PM Magazine". She met her husband at WFAA-TV in Dallas, where he hosted a popular talk show during her stint as a weather forecaster. After numerous encounters interviewing authors for television, she decided to pick up a pen herself while still working a full-time job and raising two small children.
Jeffery Wilds Deaver was born and raised in Chicago. He attended the University of Missouri and received a law degree from Fordham University. A self-described "terrible attorney," Deaver quit the law in 1990 to pursue a full-time writing career based on his fascination with and love of suspense. "When I teach courses in writing," Deaver said in a interview, "I always tell my students to write what you enjoy reading and I have always been a big fan of the sort of book I write--the plot-driven commercial thriller." Deaver's modus operandi has proven lucrative since his first book was published in the early 1990s. Several of his books have achieved best-seller status and two--THE BONE COLLECTOR (1997) and A MAIDEN'S GRAVE (1995)--have been adapted for film. Deaver's sister, Julie Reece Deaver, is an author of young adult books.
"If [the] opening salvo is not enough to keep you reading, then 25 other writers are lining up to take their best shot."
From the Publisher
Annotation David Baldacci writes the laudatory introduction this clever addition to the contemporary thriller bookshelf: NO REST FOR THE DEAD is a serial novel, published here in its complete form, written by more than two dozen of the most popular novelists of the moment. The story--crafted by masters such as J.A. Jance, Kathy Reichs, Andrew McCall Smith, and Jeffery Deaver--unfolds the mysterious murder of a San Francisco art curator whose body is found in Berlin museum. All proceeds from sales of this book go to fight leukemia and lymphoma.
