Another great book by Greg Iles. A long winded but excellent author who can make 600+ pages seem like an afternoon read. This book is a "who done it" where justice is in the eyes of the beholder. You won't look at life (or kids) in a small southern town quite the same way again.
My introduction to Greg Iles... and I couldn't put it down. So many twists and turns, and great characters. I loved it!
I love Greg Iles because I know I can pick up one of his novels and know what I am getting- a great suspenseful story with good characters who actually have character! In this one, a teenage girl turns up murdered in Natchez and Penn Cage is forced to try to help/defend his best friend from childhood. As more and more bodies turn up, the small town is thrown into turmoil.
What a twist - on almost every page. The book touches mature subject matter - murder with a sexual twist. It's an easy read, a true page turner. I can't wait to read more of Iles' books.
Fascinating! I usually do not read books written in first person. This book grabs you from the first line and you are hooked! I loved it!It's the first book of Iles that I have read. I will be reading more of his work! Terrific reading and wonderfully, suspenseful writing.
