"Although it's not a sequel to 2011's No Rest for the Dead, this novel-by-committee is a very good followup. Twenty writers--among them such notables as Billingham, Box, Bruen, Connolly, and McDermid--combine forces. ... There are some stylistic variations between the 20 authors--John Connolly doesn't sound like Charlaine Harris--but, for the most part, the story moves as though there were a single hand on the tiller. Not merely a genre curiosity, the book is a well-told mystery that stands on its own two (or 40) feet."--Booklist
"Well drawn and idiosyncratic . . . [with] some amazing twists. An entertaining mystery."--Romance Reviews Today
"Each chapter is written by a different author (all top-notch contributors ranging from Charlaine Harris and Heather Graham to John Connolly to Mary Higgins Clark) who moves the story forward in his or her own distinctive style . . . culminating in a surprising and shocking conclusion masterfully written by Lawrence Block. Thrillers fans will definitely want to check this book out! Not only is it a good read, you can feel good too as it supports a very worthy cause!"--Fresh Fiction
"Not a hiccup from one chapter to the next. It's a delightful book. ... But what else can you expect when these tried and true authors combine their skills?"
"Readers can't go wrong with this juicy thriller written serial style by 20 popular authors."--Library Journal
"Distinguished crime authors who each contribute a chapter to this team project succeed in fashioning an engaging and cohesive plot. The chapters move seamlessly as clues and storylines set up by one author are expanded by the next."--Publishers Weekly
"A wonderfully written mind teasing mystery. The plot twist and turns will have you questioning and second guessing till the end. Each chapter starts with the contributing author so not only do you get a great story but a good taste of each author's individual work...making us want more."--Tome Tender Book Blog
"When 20 of the best crime writers of our time team up to write a story, you know it will be worth the read. . . . The imagery evoked is noire, the PI just hardboiled enough, and the main reason for the investigation is a true femme fatale."--RAGMAG
"Good book, good cause, bad guy caught: win, win, win."--Post and Courier
"Each chapter is a gem, as though this were the only project that the writer had on his or her desk ... well done!"--Crimespree
