Cook's last several books will not appeal to a number of mystery readers. But any reader looking for fine, rich writing (sometimes a bit overwritten, but not often)should enjoy Mortal Memory, Instruments of the Night and Breakheart Hill, certainly his finest book. He moves back and forth between past and present, with the past illuminating the present and the present, the past. Breakheart Hill evokes places and characters so richly, so comprehensively that a sensitive reader will start to 'feel' the pages as she reads. The complex characterization of the narrator and the girl he loves are quite simply not replicated in any other suspense novel that I have ever read (well over 700 in last 20 years). Only Void Moon comes close to equalling Breakheart.

I think the other reviewer misunderstood the rating system as she only gave the book one star even though she liked it very much. This is one of my favorite books of recent years. I like it even better than his book, Chatham School Affair, which won an Edgar award the next year. The ending amazed me, but when I thumbed back through the book, I saw how he put it together and mislead the reader so well.

The other person who gave the 1 star rating didn't say she/he liked the book, she said it was boring...So please re-read what she/he wrote.

This was supposed to be a mystery/thriller and was nothing but a soap opera. Very boring stuff. I will not be reading any of his future books.
