Selected reviews of works by Peter Quinn
Mysteries: The Long Shadow Of Battle
By Tom Nolan
Fintan Dunne, OSS agent, is a World War I veteran and a former New York City cop. When we meet him in the opening section of Peter Quinn's intelligent and exciting historical thriller "Dry Bones" (Overlook Duckworth, 352 pages, $25.95), he's on what he hopes will be his final behind-the-lines mission in 1945 Slovakia. Dunne was once an altar boy, so he can't help but offer up an occasional Latin prayer for good luck. But he also knows: "Luck is fate's knuckleball. It has a will of its own."
