Instead of an anthology of crime writers, this writing project involved 26 writers, one storyline, one book.
From Faye Kellerman to Alexander McCall Smith, from R L Stine to Jeffery Deaver, all twenty six well-known crime writers all wrote at least one chapter of "No rest for the dead". My highlight was the forensic reports, as written by Kathy Reichs.
It's a cohesive storyline, the voices are real, the dialogue flows well, the characters and descriptions are all consistent with a well written mystery.
I'd recommend this to friends wanting to read a fast-paced crime novel, and who read a variety of authors and who would enjoy seeing how their favourite authors write alongside others.
