Last week Inherit the Dead hit #15 on the NYT ebook bestseller list, and #18 on the combined e/hardcover list. All due to fans of that amazing assembly of authors lining up to buy the book–I’m still sort of incredulous to see my name there.
David Pitt in Booklist says, “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.”
Publisher’s Weekly agrees: “The chapters move seamlessly as clues and storylines set up by one author are expanded by the next.”
That, friends, is editor and contributor Jonathan Santlofer’s fine hand at the tiller. He was a joy to work with, and he didn’t even mind me standing the nanny character on her head in my chapter–in fact, he cheered me on. How can you not do your best for an editor like that?
And you didn’t think I’d leave out the buy links, did you?
