What's In A Name Thomas H. Cook
 Death Sentences: Short Stories to Die For, 12

A rare book collector finds a manuscript that might have changed the course of WWI.

On the evening of November 11th, 1968, antiquarian book collector Francis Altman is giving a talk in honor of the anniversary of the Armistice Treaty. But his lecture takes a dark turn upon the haunting arrival of a classmate from his past. As the two men discuss their lives they realise that they are two sides of the same coin: both born and raised in Germany, but whereas Altman's role in the war elevated his position, his comrade's life was destroyed on the faceless, mechanized battlefields.

This strange encounter leaves Altman in possession of the man's personal manuscript, his mysterious 'life's work,' whose contents could have changed the course of history...

Author
Thomas H. Cook
Thomas H. Cook
Thomas H. Cook (b. 1947) is the author of nearly two dozen critically lauded crime novels. Born in Fort Payne, Alabama, Cook published his first novel, Blood Innocents, in 1980 while serving as the book review editor of Atlanta magazine. Two years later, on the release of his second novel, The Orchids, he turned to writing full-time. Cook published steadily through the 1980s, penning such works as the Frank Clemons trilogy, a series of mysteries starring a jaded cop. He found breakout success with The Chatham School Affair (1996), which won an Edgar Award for best novel. His work has been praised by critics for his attention to psychology and the lyrical nature of his prose. Besides mysteries, Cook has written two true-crime books, Early Graves (1992) and the Edgar-nominated Blood Echoes (1993), as well as several literary novels, including Elena (1986). He lives and works in New York City.
