The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mississippi Blood , Greg Iles, keeps the secrets of the South alive in this vibrant novel of infatuation, murder, and sexual intrigue set in his hometown of Natchez, Mississippi.

After winning the most dangerous case of his career, prosecutor Penn Cage decides to remain in his Southern hometown to raise his young daughter in a safe haven. But nowhere is truly safe -- not from long-buried secrets, or murder....When the nude body of prep school student Kate Townsend is found near the Mississippi River, Penn's best friend, Drew Elliott, is desperate for his counsel. An esteemed family physician, Drew makes a shocking confession that could put him on death row. Penn will do all he can to exonerate Drew, but in a town where the gaze of a landmark cemetery statue -- the Turning Angel -- never looks away, Penn finds himself caught on the jagged edge of blackmail, betrayal, and deadly violence.

Read Natchez Burning and then The Bone Tree. Had to start from The Quiet Game to follow the characters. I'm hooked! Greg Iles is another fave author!

The second one of his novels that I have read, can't wait to get into the rest! Very good

A solid story and well written as usual. There are parts of his story telling, non-fiction, that bring you right to the point more real than an "deja-vu".
