Fintan Dunne, the detective at the center of The Man Who Never Returned and Hour of the Cat, is back in this spellbinding story of an ill-fated OSS mission into the heart of the Eastern front and its consequences more than a decade after the war's end.

As the Red Army continues its unstoppable march toward Berlin in the winter of 1945, Dunne and his fellow soldier Dick Van Hull volunteer for a dangerous drop behind enemy lines to rescue a team of OSS officers trying to abet the Czech resistance. When the plan goes south, Dunne and Van Hull uncover a secret that will change both of their lives. Years later, Dunne is drawn back into the shadowy realm of Cold War espionage in an effort to clear his friend's good name and right an injustice so shocking that men would, quite literally, kill to keep it quiet.

A literary thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end, Dry Bones completes the trilogy started in Hour of the Cat. Peter Quinn has crafted yet another smart and stylish historical mystery, following his longtime hero from the last gasp of the Third Reich to the heady days of the Cuban revolution. Quinn's signature prose--which Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt described as "spare but passionate, wry but loving"--shines once again throughout. New York Times bestselling author James Patterson credits Quinn with "perfecting, if not actually creating, a genre you could call the history-mystery." Blending fact and fiction into a thoroughly compelling whole, this is Quinn at his very best.

Review:

"Quinn's plot defy easy summary, but his characters fascinate, and his sense of place and time is compelling. Readers who want to taste history will welcome Dry Bones." —Booklist

"Quinn writes with elegant restraint; he's a master of tone and a deft orchestrator of people and events. Gripping up to the end, the book...will send readers who were new to Quinn back to his other books in the series." —Kirkus, Starred Review

“Dry Bones is a savvy, suspenseful tale of World War II espionage and Cold War skullduggery in which Fintan Dunne cements his place in the PI pantheon along side Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade. Dunne can be misled and mishandled, but he can’t be deterred. Every bit as unpredictable as Quinn’s first two installments, this riveting conclusion to the trilogy leaves no doubt that Dunne is an ace of Spades who knows when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em.” – William Kennedy

"Peter Quinn is a poet and an historian and one of our finest storytellers.  He sits at the fireside of the American imagination.  He can carve mystery out of mystery.  The work is generous and agile and profound."   - Colum McCann, National Book Award winner and author of Transatlantic.

Praise for Peter Quinn:

"Quinn knows New York and its politics better than anyone. This is noir fiction at its finest." --William Kennedy

"Gripping from the first page to the last, Peter Quinn creates a unique and utterly believable world, part history, part fiction. He is an enviably wonderful writer." --Gabriel Byrne

"A Gotham version of Philip Marlowe." --Chicago Tribune
