Strand Critics Award for Best First Novel
Fintan Dunne, the detective at the center of The Man Who Never Returned and Hour of the Cat, is back in this spellbinding story of an ill-fated OSS mission into the heart of the Eastern front and its consequences more than a decade after the war's end.
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.
A literary thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end, Dry Bones completes the trilogy started in Hour of the Cat. Blending fact and fiction into a thoroughly compelling whole, this is Quinn at his very best.
