Twenty six writers. One mystery. One book.

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.
