From the Publisher:
More than twenty New York Times bestselling authors team up to create a first-rate serial novel?a collaboration that combines the skills of America's greatest storytellers to produce a gripping, spellbinding mystery.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. 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 these twenty-six bestselling writers brings their distinctive voice to a chapter of the narrative, building the tension to a shocking, explosive finale. No Rest for the Dead is a thrilling accomplishment that only America's very best authors could achieve.

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.
Author Bio
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 barnesandnoble.com 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.
