I needed something to read and this book sounded interesting. I have never read Iles before and normally when I take a chance on a new author it all goes horribly wrong and I find I've just wasted time and money on a book that will sit on my shelf gathering dust.
Not this time. This book takes your hand and leads you into a story that is constantly unfolding with revelations, setbacks, hope and despair.
As the cover says the story is about a woman photojournalist who by chance sees a portrait of her missing, presumed dead, sister who disappeared over a year before. She of course is anxious to find out the truth and the only way which she can do this is to co-operate with the FBI and hope they don't cut her out of the loop as they did after her sister first went missing.
With your average thriller the ending can sometimes let you down. Iles skillfully avoids this trap and keeps you reading and neatly closes the story with a satisfying conclusion that leaves no questions unanswered.
The main characters are solid and well written and at no point are you jarred into reality with a careless sentence or paragraph that doesn't ring true.
If you like thrillers, or if you are just hunting for a good read, I can't recommend this book enough.

Firstly let me state that thrillers are not my genre and I picked this book up for 50p in a sale. The storyline of a serial murderer, a member of the public helping the FBI, lots of action, storyline changing page after page is really excellent. I found myself not putting the book down wanting to know what happened next. What didn't work for me was the central character Jordan who to me was a women obviously written by a man. So of course she had to be stunning, independant, wear casual relaxed male style clothing and other male fantasy cliches of the independant women waiting for her knight in shinning armour. So the parts of the book dealing with her feelings and relationships did not work and were a distraction from the main show which was the investigation of the crime. Back to the good part the storyline is that of a serial killer who paints pictures of his victims in the sleep of death which are so well crafted that they become the subject of vast bids on the international art market. Jordan stumbles into this story by attending an art exhibition in Hong Kong where one of the pictures shows her twin sister, missing for some time. She manages to make a connection from her sisters disappearance and that of many other women in New Orleans and then enter the FBI. The story is then one of her assisting the professionals in tracking down the identity of the killer, though I'm pretty convinced they would not normally allow a member of the public such freedom in such an investigation or botch things up so much. The twists and turns mean as I said you are not sure where the story is leading until the end, so the interest level (critical for a thriller) is kept until the end. If I had to rate this as a piece of writing because of the central characters and the too obvious cliches splattered throughout it would only be a 2 but for the pace and storyline, and the 50p I spent make it definately a 4.

Greg Iles creates pace and tension in his books, and I like that. Even though both the premise of the plot and the outcome stretch credibility somewhat, the main characters are sympathetic and the story gripped me and kept me guessing. This isn't literature, but Iles' writing style has polish and this book works as a good, light read - great on holiday or when you want a bit of escapism.

This book was riveting until the end. I really enjoyed the art aspect as it was different to any other topic I had read about before.
I highly recommend this book it was worth the money.
Also I loved Greg's description of New Orleans again different from any other thriller writer i have read before.

I have reached a point where i'm struggling to find new - and interesting - authors. I seem to have exhausted those that i know of. So it was with trepidation that i picked up Iles' book as i'd previously never heard of him.
This book was extremely gripping. I was on holiday with relatives at the time and often needed something to pass the time at quiet moments - Dead Sleep did this and more. It's one of those books that you read (if you're anything like me)so quickly - skimming over the sentences in a desperate urge to reach the climax! The characters were believable (great to see a heroine who's believable, likeable but with forgivable flaws) and the plot unpredictable. Now i'm back home the only decision i've got to make is which one of his books to read next.

As usual Greg Iles does not disappoint. Very good read and now onto the next one!!! Discovered him some years ago with Natchez Burning and am still ploughing through his books. Keep them coming Mr. Iles

Jordan Glass, award-winning war photographer is amazed when she finds a painting of her identical twin sister Jane in a Hong Kong art gallery. Particularly since her sister disappeared without a trace months before. With the help of the FBI Jordan sets out to trace the source of the paintings and find out what happened to her sister, and the dozen or so other women who went missing in New Orleans over the same period.
The action and suspense never let up and the plot has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. The villain is genuinely hard to identify and the creepy climax kept me up late into the night.
