Interview: Thomas H. Cook

Today in January Magazine, contributing editor Ali Karim interviews Thomas H. Cook, author of The Fate of Katherine Carr and a writer who just might be the best known author you’ve never heard of.

“You like puzzling out the solutions to mysteries?” asks Karim. “Then tackle this one: why isn’t American Thomas H. Cook one of the world’s biggest-selling authors? He’s prolific, with more than two dozen crime and suspense novels to his credit, plus non-fiction books and anthologies he has edited. He won an Edgar Award for his 1996 novel, The Chatham School Affair, and 2005’s devastating Red Leaves was nominated for an Edgar, a Crime Writer’s Association Dagger Award, an Anthony Award, a Barry Award and Sweden’s Martin Beck Award.”

  1. Thomas H. Cook is one of my favorite authors. I, too, often wonder why he is not more well known. I do what I can to rectify that situation by suggesting his books to readers in our library. He doesn't fit a mold, and though that may be the reason his name doesn't immediately come to mind, it is the reason I look foreward to anything he writes. I embrace his slower paced building of plot, his excellent exploration of all the nuances of good vs. evil and what I can only describe as brooding, good writing.

    Thanks for giving us a bit more insight with this interview.
