Publisher's Summary

The Interrogation is a desperate race against time and a gripping journey into the darkest corners of the human soul.

One day in 1952, the strangled body of 10-year-old Cathy Lake is discovered in a public park. A homeless suspect, Albert Jay Smalls, is arrested and held for interrogation. Officers Norman Cohen and Jack Pierce have only 24 hours to make the sullen young man talk before he's released. How far are they willing to push him to get a confession?

As the two policemen gather the many contradictory pieces of evidence, the boundaries between hunter and prey, guilty and innocent, begin to blur.

Thomas H. Cook is a master of the surprise ending, and The Interrogation is sure to leave every listener stunned. Audie Award-winning narrator George Guidall's performance captures the dramatic urgency of this deeply disturbing tale.

What the Critics Say

"Employing flashbacks and parallel action while in the interrogation frame, Cook adroitly weaves back and forth between the crime itself, the subsequent investigation and the halting questioning of the suspect." (Publishers Weekly)

    "A classic."

    Excellent story. Excellent narration (maybe the best I have heard). Thomas Cook creates characters as vivid and exciting as Hemingway. George Guidall then brings them to life. I did not think one man could voice act so many characters at once!

    Story
    "Never gets off the ground"
    What disappointed you about The Interrogation?

    The plot and characters shift around leaving the reader wondering what's going on. I just couldn't get into the story.


    What didn’t you like about George Guidall’s performance?

    It starts out fine with a low key performance adequate to noir. But after a while it's just plain dull.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think I'll look for another Thomas Cook novel.

    Story
    "Satisfying, but difficult to follow"

    Begins @ WWII, then seems to transform to modern times, unable to determine if subsequent action takes place in past or present.

    "Questionable"

    Writer tried to make this idea work, but he took too long. He seemed to know little about child murderers. Plot device -- story emerges as cops interrogate suspect -- dated back to the days of the Saturday Evening Post. Gotta be real patient and real naive to dig this thing.
