I find Greg Iles a very frustrating writer.
I recently read Turning Angel, which I thought was excellent, so went straight to Blood Memory.
It centres on a forensic odontologist called Catherine (Cat) Ferry who has been invited to help with the New Orleans and FBI task force to solve a series of gruesome murders where bite marks are left on the victims who happen to be older men.
We quickly learn that Cat has issues having been the victim of child abuse and is a serial drinker with odd sexual preferences.
She's also having an affair with a cop and is carrying his child so add that to the melting pot and you have pretty much a full house of a troubled person!
In some ways this flawed individual should make for real character engagement but somehow after wading though a very long book I was only mildly concerned by her and her plight.
But back to the plot, Cat is called off the case for a variety of reasons, so she decides to go home near Natchez, Mississippi, to find have some "me" time.
Whilst there and in her bedroom with a portfolio of forensic equipement there's some accidental chemcial spillage which uncovers a pair of bloody footprints.
It then takes a different course with some soul searching about her father who was murdered when Cat was a child but under mysterious circumstances.
Her father was also a Vietnam Vet and part of an elite group who didn't exactly obey the Geneva Convention rules!
Enter stage left Grandapa who's a control freak extraordinaire but has a for soft spot for Cat, and guess what he has big plans for Natchez, he also has a weird "psycho" sidekick to add more fuel to the fire.
So now we have two parallel plots going on.
The serial murders in New Orleans and the unresolved murder of Cat's father.

I haven`t finished the book yet but its absolutely one of the best books i have ever read. I think Greg Iles is a talented writer and have read several of his other books. The subject matter in this book is not for the faint hearted. It has had me gripped from the beginning and I cant wait to see who did it. If you like a good thriller you will not be disappointed in this book. Really an excellent read!

I really enjoyed this book. It's not my usual genre as I normally read supernatural but i found this really interesting and suspencful.

The main character is very real and interesting. The plot was just great and exciting. Also, very educating, I seemed to have learned quite a bit from it.

I highly recommend this for anyone!

I read Dead Sleep a couple of weeks ago and perhaps I would have enjoyed this book more if there had been a bigger gap. Here we have another woman in a responsible job helping the FBI - and having them both troubled / hooked on vodka and valium just made the writer feel like a bit of a one trick pony.

Do American women really drive at "over 80" while a valium is starting to take effect and she's salivating over Grey Goose.

**Spoiler alert**

And, to make it worse, she's pregnant. So someone who's well educated and understands the effects of drink / drugs on a baby she's decided she really wants to keep carries on drinking and drugging it up regardless. It just didn't make sense to me.

It also didn't make sense that the same FBI agent from Dead Sleep pops up once again and allows a woman who really shouldn't be so close to the investigation be heavily involved and party to privileged information. Even though the police view her as a liability after panic attacks at crime scenes.

In some ways Greg is a good writer and there are parts of his books where you are dying to know the outcome and keep turning pages. But, as with Dead Sleep, the 2nd half of this book just got a bit silly.

And we have our heroine running off on her own to meet someone she shouldn't - interfering in the investigation and yet continually done favours by the FBI when you suspect, in real life, she'd have been thrown in the slammer for risking an investigation.

Overall - it was mostly good entertainment. But too far fetched in places.

This is easily Greg Iles' best book, although I look forward to reading Turning Angel.

This is also one of the best books I've read.

For me, it beats Stephen King's thrillers, Ian Rankins and other books from better knows authors like Dan Brown.

The twist, turns, legal climaxes and the pure edrenilin rush from the book has to be worth ever penny.

Even at shop and collector editions prices, this is an amazing book. Its a must read to everyone, whatever the age.

This is a brilliantly written thriller as all of iles' books. The depth of research and thought put into it is second to none. And yes the topic of sexual abuse is a bit heavy but it is extremely well readable as usual with this author
