When Christopher Thomas, a curator at San Francisco's Museum of Fine Arts, is murdered and his decaying body is found in an iron maiden in Berlin, his wife Rosemary Thomas is the prime suspect. Long suffering under Christopher's unfaithful ways, Rosemary is tried, convicted and executed. Ten years later, Jon Nunn, the detective who cracked the case, becomes convinced that the wrong person was put to death. Along with financier Tony Olsen, he plans to gather everyone who was there the night Christopher died and finally uncover the truth about what happened that fateful evening. Could it have been the ne'er do well brother Peter Hausen, interested in his sister's trust fund having got through his own; the curatorial assistant Justine Olengard, used and betrayed by Christopher; the artist Belle who turned down his advances only to see her career suffer a setback; or someone else all together? No Rest for the Dead is a thrilling, page-turning accomplishment that only the very best thriller writers could achieve.

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 more than twenty New York Times bestselling novels featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, including her most recent The Bone Collection. 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.

Review:

"'No Rest for the Dead’ is more than just a stunt. Anyone who loves a good mystery will love this book and to top it off proceeds go to a good cause.”

--CNN.com, 'Hot Summer Reads'

“The plot was gritty, suspenseful, and compelling. It was definitely everything I would expect from authors I've come to love, and authors I'm hoping to get to know better.”

--Freshfiction.com

“It's a fast-paced mystery that will have the reader guessing until the final chapter."

--Blogcritics.org

"The end result is an interesting mystery that deftly weaves the contributions of these great authors into a surprisingly cogent and surprising mystery."

--NewMysteryReader.com

“There's a little bit of suspense, a few instances of character insight, a little action, a little bit of forensics. The book reads straight with a consistent voice."

--Suspense Magazine

“An A-list collaboration.”

--Sacramento Bee
