th-1“Having been raised in New York I feel I received an enormous gift.  People travel all over the world to write in exotic places, but you grow up here, in the boroughs, it’s like living in different worlds.  The older I get the more I’m stuck by the drama of change that goes on around us.  It’s a great gift for a novelist.  You don’t have to search for it. In New York you just live it. ”  Peter Quinn.


Why did Peter Quinn write his trilogy, The Hour of the Cat, The Man Who Never Returned and Dry Bones? Watch this short video narrated by Quinn and you’ll learn why. 


“Peter Quinn is a poet and an historian and one of our finest storytellers. He sits at the fireside of the American imagination. He can carve mystery out of mystery. His work is generous and agile and profound.” – Colum McCann


“…another work of intricate structure, suspense and wit…”
Wall Street Journal


Dry Bones is a savvy, suspenseful tale of World War II espionage and Cold War skullduggery “- William Kennedy, Pulitzer Prize Winner

“Dry Bones,” the third and final novel in Peter Dunne’s Fintan Dunne trilogy, is now on sale.


Here’s what they’re saying about  AWoW member’s Quinn’s book:


“…another work of intricate structure, suspense and wit…”
Wall Street Journal


“A savvy, suspenseful tale of WWII espionage and Cold War skullduggery.”
William Kennedy, Pulitzer Prize Winner


Quinn writes with elegant restraint; he’s a master of tone and a deft orchestrator of people and events….Gripping up to the end, the book—which takes its title from the old spiritual about everything being connected—will send readers who were new to Quinn back to his other books in the series.
