Peter Quinn is the author of Hour of the Cat, The Man Who Never Returned, Looking for Jimmy, and The Banished Children of Eve, all available from Overlook.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
