Pericles "Perry" Christo is a PI with a past -- a former cop who lost his badge and his family in a corruption scandal. When a wealthy Upper East Side matron summons him one cold February night, Perry grabs what seems to be a straightforward case. In this classic noir tale set on New York's mean streets and along Hamptons' back roads, twenty authors bring distinctive voices to each chapter as the tension builds to a shocking, explosive finale.

I wonder, are there more novels out there like this one where every chapter is written by a different author? I will do some research. A fun easy read.

Concept is interesting but the execution is mediocre, like stumbling through a story.

Although this is listed as a Lee Child book, only the forward is written by Lee Child. This is a mystery novel where each chapter is written by a different author (none of whom are Lee Child). Just trying to avoid confusion. Can't comment on the book yet as I am still reading it.
Update - I didn't finish reading this book. It didn't hold my interest.

nice change from the Jack Reacher books. Tangled and interesting.

This book is for a good cause, so I hope it sells, but it is really a submediocre book. The characters simply didn't hold one's interest, too mundane, too banal, just not quality mystery writing, suggesting that many of the authors can get away with a lengthy novel, but few can do the short story format.

Written chapter by chapter by a thriller writer. Flows really well considering the many authors.
