4.0 out of 5 stars Sins of the Flesh 4 Jun. 2007
This is the first Greg Iles book that I have read. It wont be the last. The story is about a middle aged, married, doctor having an affair with a high school student who is found murdered at the start of the story.An old school budy of the doctors has returned to the town, to give up his law practice, and become a full time writer. Of course things don't work out that way and our hero is soon involved in the case.A good read full of twists and turns and small town politics. Well worth four stars and well worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Faith restored 10 Aug. 2007
By John
A few years ago I read Iles WW2 thrillers and enjoyed them. More recently I thought 24 Hours was excellent. Then I tried Sleep No More and Dark Matter and thought they were rubbish as Iles tried to explore the para normal which is not for me.
I liked the synopsis of this book and decided to give Iles another try. However when I started reading one Saturday lunchtime I did so with scepticism. Two hours and 150 pages later I was hooked. This was a true whodunnit set in a southern American town. Racial tension, bigotry, sexual deviation and drug abuse are all inter twined to make a cracking read. As I progressed through the book I realised that it is a second novel involving Penn Cage. He and many of the characters appeared in The Quiet Game. The actual story stands alone although some of the character development refers to the previous novel. Penn's relationship with his daughter and girlfriend has developed as a result of what went before. The animosity between him and the DA is because of what happened in the previous story. However if the Quiet Game is as good as this then it should be a pleasure to read it first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant page turner 7 Jun. 2006
Greg Iles has written another brilliant thriller. You become instantly involved in all of the main characters' lives and there are plenty of twists and turns to make things interesting. As usual the ending is a complete surprise and when you have finished you just wish that there was more to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars PURE ILES - POWERFUL AND UNPUTDOWNABLE 20 Dec. 2005
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
With seamless, suspense filled plotting and dialogue so crisp that it crackles, Greg Iles (Blood Memory, The Footprints of God) delivers another surprise packed story. Turning Angel is a thought provoking thriller as it reveals the dark side of high school life today, educating many as it spotlights the choices and crises faced by our youth. It's pure Iles, powerful and unputdownable.
Penn Cage, writer and attorney, has returned to his hometown of Natchez, Mississippi to raise his young daughter, Annie. He's widowed and has had an off again - on again relationship with a younger woman on a high career curve. More than age, distance tends to separate them. Penn has also returned to his childhood friend, Dr. Andrew Elliott, Rhodes scholar, internist, a "golden boy, a paragon of everything small town America holds to be noble, and by unwritten law the town will crucify him with a hatred equal to their betrayed love."
Both men serve on the board of a private school, a bastion of learning that produces such outstanding students as 17-year-old Kate Townsend, class Valedictorian, tennis ace, beautiful, soon to attend Harvard. She is the best of the best - and she is found raped and murdered, her body discovered in St. Catherine's Creek.
That's enough of a shock for one evening, but Penn receives a double whammy when Drew confesses that he loved Kate and had been having an affair with her. He had planned to leave his wife, had even placed a down payment on a house in Cambridge where he and Kate would live.
As a friend, it takes Penn some time to mentally accept Drew's confession; as an attorney he knows that in Mississippi, due to Kate's age, Drew can be arrested for statutory rape.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Thrilling Page Turner 12 Mar. 2009
This was the second book I had read by Greg Iles, and it got me hooked straight away. The pace was unrelenting, and it was a very believable account of racial prejudice, bigotry, the difficulties of parenting, and above all, the dangers of promiscuity. The plot seemed straightforward- who killed a promising student?- but there were undercurrents of drug abuse, under age sex, and political intrigue. I was surprised that the law would come down so hard on an adult having an affair with a student, and as the dead girl's diary extracts unfold, one thinks that she knew exactly what she was doing, and the reader is anxious that justice should be carried out. In one particular section-and I do not wish to give the game away-there is a vivid description of the effects of heroin on the body. It should make people think twice about starting the dangerous habit.I was sorry that I had finished it-always the sign of a good read-, and I shall look forward to more books by the same author.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 1 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was the first Greg Iles novel I ever read and it remains the best I ever read. I am a total Greg Iles fan now, but 'Turning Angel' pulls out all the stops. It keeps you reading, and it makes you care about the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Turning Angel = Turning Heads 15 Mar. 2007
This was my first installment of Greg Iles, were have i been? Turning Angel was more than a pleasant suprise for me, this is a page turner if ever there was one. Iles writes with precision and leaves you hungry for more. Easily read in one sitting, altough i only gave it 4 stars because the plot wasnt the best but it was a brilliant read and would highly recommend it, am going to purchase the rest of his books!
