The Last Talk With Lola Faye

(2010)
A novel by

 
 
Lucas Page, a once ambitious historian now resigned to mediocrity, visits St. Louis to give a sparsely attended reading - nothing out of the ordinary. Except among the yawning attendees is someone he did not expect: Lola Faye Gilroy, the 'other woman' he has long blamed for his father's murder decades earlier.

Reluctantly, Luke joins Lola Faye for a drink. As one drink turns into several, these two battered souls relive, from their vastly different perspectives, the most searing experience of their lives, one that destroyed them both in very different ways. Slowly but surely, the hotel bar dissolves around them and they are transported back to the tiny southern town where this defining moment - a violent crime of passion - is taken up once again and turned in the light to reveal flaws in the old answers. As it turns out, there is much Luke doesn't know. And what he doesn't know can hurt him. Trapped in an increasingly intense emotional exchange, and with no place to go save back into his own dark past, Luke desperately struggles to gain control of an ever more threatening conversation, to discover why Lola Faye has come and what she is after - before it is too late.

'No other writer takes readers as deeply into the heart of darkness as Thomas H. Cook,' says the Chicago Tribune, and nowhere is that more true than in Last Talk with Lola Faye, a taut literary thriller in the gothic tradition of Master of the Delta.
