Instruments of Night
Paul Graves is a middle-aged writer of gothic suspense novels that feature a sadistic genius pitted against a Victorian detective. Asked to investigate a real 50-year-old murder, Graves can't resist. Faye Harrison had been tortured, strangled, and her body hidden in a cave. The details of the murder all too closely resemble those surrounding the death of Graves's sister when he was twelve. Thomas Cook has woven a riveting novel of haunting power, of innocence lost and trust betrayed, and of an author who must confront the origins of his own disturbing trade.
