From the acclaimed author of the Thumping Good Read Award nominee BREAKHEART HILL – a haunting tale of psychological suspense and mystery.
Cook has long had a brilliant critical reputation, thanks to compelling mysteries such as Sacrificial Ground and Evidence of Blood. Now he has finally begun to reach a wider readership, following the breakthrough success of Breakheart Hill, shortlisted for the 1996 WH Smith Thumping Good Read Award.
In Mortal Memory, which he wrote immediately before Breakheart Hill, he takes the reader on another characteristically haunting journey of discovery, piecing together a crime from the past that still casts its shadow over the present. At the age of nine Steve Farris somehow survived when his father coolly murdered the rest of his family. When, years later, writer Rebecca Soltero interviews him about the tragedy, she gradually reawakens long-suppressed memories of his troubled childhood – until alarming parallels with his current situation begin to emerge.

‘Ever wonder what Columbus felt like when he spotted land? It must be akin to discovering a writer of Thomas Cook’s ability after years of ignorance. One of the best thrillers of the year. Complex, multi-layered, disturbing… simply brilliant.’
A disturbing and gripping novel of a man caught between the present and the past
