Great; I have read most of his books and love them.
Wish mr. Iles would write more
Each chapters ends with cliffhangers and keeps you wondering what happens next.
Characters are well drawn and the plot is suspenseful. I enjoy it especially because I have friends who live in Natchez. This was my first Greg Iles and I'll be reading more.
I usually don't care for this genre, however Iles keeps you right there. A one night read, can't put it down.
