Thomas H. Cook’s mesmerizing novels have attracted many Edgar Award nominations, and his ´´Chatham School Affair´´ won the Edgar Award for Best Novel. Filled with the haunting characters that have become Cook’s trademark, Instruments of Night creates a fusion between past and present that is unique and chilling. Author Paul Graves has achieved modest popularity for a crime series that pits a perceptive detective against his nemesis, a mastermind of evil.
