Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Baldacci and the International Thriller Writers have cobbled together what can only be called a thriller reader's ultimate fantasy. How cool would it be if a pair of celebrated crime-fiction protagonists, the creations of different authors, teamed up together on a case, in a story jointly penned by the two writers? Even if it was just 1 pair, it would be pretty darn cool, but 11 pairs? Way cool. Start with the dream duo of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch and Dennis Lehane's Patrick Kenzie. Bosch is in Boston working a 15-year-old murder case when he spots another guy staking out the suspect's address; naturally, the other guy is Kenzie. Another stellar pairing finds John Sandford's Lucas Davenport, a world-class wiseass, joining forces with Jeffrey Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme, who doesn't suffer fools, gladly or otherwise. Other notable pairings include Lee Child's Jack Reacher teamed with Joseph Finder's Nick Heller, and Ian Rankin's John Rebus alongside Peter James' Roy Grace. Baldacci includes backstory for each entry and biographies of all the contributors. Great fun for thriller fans.--Lukowsky, Wes Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This anthology, in which members of the International Thriller Writers society double up on 11 short mysteries featuring their famous protagonists in tandem, is both gimmicky and intriguing-and surprisingly testosterone-soaked. All but two of the tales feature male bonding. Dennis Boutsikaris's tough, verging-on-cynical voice stands in for the lion's share of the protagonists, including Jeffrey Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme and John Sandford's Lucas Davenport, in the longest, and most entertaining, entry, "Rhymes with Prey." Narrator Dylan Baker scores with two fantasy-mystery duets, adding Southern-tinged sarcasm to "Infernal Night," in which F. Paul Wilson's Repairman Jack and Heather Graham's Michael Quinn meet in a New Orleans cemetery, then using a suspenseful whisper for "Gaslighted," a nightmarish thriller with Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's Aloysius Pendergast and Slappy, R.L. Stine's ventriloquist's dummy-by far the anthology's oddest coupling. Narrator January LaVoy easily handles the women protagonists; she adds a thick Boston accent to Det. D.D. Warren and a brittle, energetic pacing for a N.Y.C. prosecutor. A Simon & Schuster hardcover. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
