Death, the Pale Rider and the most feared member of the Four Horsemen, has been searching through the centuries for a soul to save him from his solitary life. In the 1700s, Gatian Almasia was rich and a sought-after member of Parisian society. No one realized he’d lost his reason for living three years earlier. When his sister accuses…

As the Red Army continues its unstoppable march toward Berlin in the winter of 1945, Dunne and his fellow soldier Dick Van Hull volunteer for a dangerous drop behind enemy lines to rescue a team of OSS officers trying to abet the Czech resistance. When the plan goes south, Dunne and Van Hull uncover a secret that will change both of their lives. Years later, Dunne is drawn back into the shadowy realm of Cold War espionage in an effort to clear his friend's good name and right an injustice so shocking that men would, quite literally, kill to keep it quiet.

A literary thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end, Dry Bones completes the trilogy started in Hour of the Cat. Peter Quinn has crafted yet another smart and stylish historical mystery, following his longtime hero from the last gasp of the Third Reich to the heady days of the Cuban revolution. Quinn's signature prose – which Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt described as "spare but passionate, wry but loving" – shines once again throughout. New York Times bestselling author James Patterson credits Quinn with "perfecting, if not actually creating, a genre you could call the history-mystery." Blending fact and fiction into a thoroughly compelling whole, this is Quinn at his very best.
