    Book details

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.

"Powerful....heartfelt....entirely gripping."

  • By Martin Pratt on 17 June 2017

    this is the second book in a series with the charcter Penn Cage. I noted in my review of the first book (The Quiet Game) that i had read an earlier book by this author, was unimpressed, and had never read him again, until recvently. in that review, I mused which of these two books i had read was more typical of his output, as i highly rated TQG and did not rate whatever other book i had read. well, i can confirm that this book is just as good, or better, than the first in the series.This book picks up five years after TQG and Penn cage is now settled back in his childhood home. His on/off girlfriend, who won a Pullitzer prize on the back of the events in that previous book, is more off the scene than on. Penn is a widower but his doing a good job bringing up his young daughter, aided with insightful help from his teenage baby sitter.He and a very good friend, Drew are on the Board of St Stephens, a private school where they were both distinguised former pupils. the community is shattered when the Head Girl, Kate, bound for an excellent future, is found murdered. Complications set in when Drew reveals he has had a passionate relationship with the girl and they were planning to be together. Penn, a former lawyer, is torn between his loyalty to Drew and his opposiiton to the fairly recently appointed District Attorny, who, as a black man, is politically motivated to prosecute a prominent white doctor.The book is full of twists and turns, electrically charged in a tense 'Old South' environment with drug dealing and police/DA opportunists. Kate's former life, is revealed through diaries of her experiences; (we have to assume the author is accurate in his research), showing a maturity in an 18 year old that i dont recall from my youth.all in all, a very good read. Probably best if you read the books in order although it can be read as a stand alone. And will i be reading more from this author? Most certainly!

    Read the first in the series and then followed straight after with this one. I thoroughly enjoyed the machinations and seedy underbelly of a small Southern town. High profile middleaged doctor accused of murdering a teen girl, drug runners, murders, police rivalry and in the middle Penn Cage trying, unsuccessfully at first to help his friend. A bit long I have to admit, and at times a bit unbelievable, but still pure escapism. You start to get to know the characters in this book and as the series progresses i am sure they will come into their own. Cant wait to start the third.

    After the fantastic "Quiet Game" I was looking forward to reading this next adventure. The writing remains as solid as ever and the court room thrills kept me enthralled.However the book was spoiled somewhat by a strange obsession with teenage sexuality, and an almost preachy tone that claimed it is ok to sleep with underage girls. It made Pen a lot less likeable whole he was mulling over his tendency to glance at his babysitters body, and flirt with her openly about her 'ghetto butt'.Nevertheless it is a very enjoyable book.

    Really good book. Gripping. New to this author, but if this book is anything to go by will definitely be reading more.

    Having read the first book in the series (the quiet game), I felt compelled to read this. I really enjoyed the story but was not as taken with it as the first book. Still a good read and well worth your time.
