No Rest for the Dead
Author: David Baldacci (introduction by)
From Mysterious Reviews: The good news is that there's a terrific story being told in this collaborative effort by 26 popular mystery writers. The less good news is that there doesn't seem to be any point in having all these authors contribute to this book other than as a marketing gimmick as each chapter is written in essentially the same manner, as if by a single writer.
Synopsis (from the publisher): 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. With the help of the dead woman's friend, he plans to gather everyone who was there the night Christopher died and finally uncover the truth, suspect by suspect. 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.
