The Interrogation

(2002)
A novel by

 
 
In his latest novel of unrelenting suspense, Edgar Award-winning author Thomas Cook journeys into the darkest corners of the human heart to tell a mesmerizing story of crime and retribution-and the forces that push even good people to the breaking point.

THE INTERROGATION

Albert Jay Smalls sits in an interrogation room accused of an unspeakable crime. The police have no witnesses, no physical evidence, but they are certain he is hiding the truth. With less than twelve hours before he must be released, Smalls will be put through one final interrogation. I

It is a search that leads into the shadowed recesses of one man's shattered mind-and to the devastating secrets buried in a desolate seaside town. It is a quest that takes three desperate cops down a dark, twisting road as they race against the clock to find out what really happened one rainy autumn afternoon in 1952. The answers will be more shocking than anyone can imagine, blurring the boundaries between pursuers and prey, between the innocent and the guilty, between the truth that sets us free and the tragedies that haunt us to the grave.

Against a gripping backdrop of murder and redemption, master storyteller Thomas Cook probes the uneasy, shifting bonds of family, love, and unbearable loss, proving once again why he is "perhaps the best American writer of crime fiction currently practicing" (Drood Review).


"Violence, tenderness, unspeakable evil, and the churning torment of a lost soul a little too close to them for comfort before the final sickening surprise."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Probably no other suspense writer takes readers as deeply into the heart of darkness as Cook."
-Chicago Tribune

"There's no ignoring [Thomas Cook's] savage imagery, or escaping the airless chambers of his disturbing imagination."
-The New York Times Book Review

"Hypnotic prose and fresh scenarios set [Cook's] suspenseful fiction apart....If you've not yet been haunted by a Thomas Cook novel, now is a fine time to start."
-Star Tribune, Minneapolis

"Cook uses the genre to open a window onto the human condition....Literate, compelling...Events accelerate with increasing force, but few readers will be prepared for the surprise that waits at novel's end."
-Publishers Weekly
