This is the first book I have read by Greg Iles and I will definitely read his other books. Although it didn't "scare the living daylights out of me" as promised on the cover, it was
a well-done and satisfying thriller. I recommend it highly to anyone who likes this genre with some thought and originality in a book.

From the jacket "They are called the "Sleeping Women," a series of unsettling paintings in which the nude female subjects appear to be not asleep, but dead. Photojournalist Jordan Glass has another reason to find the paintings disturbing: The face on one of the nudes is her own - or perhaps the face of her twin sister, who disappeared and is still missing. At the urging of the FBI, Jordan becomes both hunter and hunted in a search for the anonymous artist - an obsessed killer who seems to know more about Jordan and her family than she is prepared to accept..."

The most appealing thing about this book to me was that it was set in New Orleans in the year 2000 (pre-K). Mr Iles exhibits a prescience when he points out that N.O. is a bowl with a levee system that is not likely to hold up if and when the right hurricane comes along. He was not the only one to note this pre-K however and unfortunately it happened any way.

This was the fourth book by Greg Iles that I have read. It is worth noting I think that each of these books has been unique. Each experience has been a different journey. There is nothing serial about any of them. I envy his imagination and I'm thankful for the books.

Not as heart-stopping or as provocative as his later works, most notably "Blood Memory", but a well-crafted thriller written in a female first person style, which I think he brings off rather well. This is well worth a read.
