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.

    Turning Angel Reviews

  • Edward Lorn

    Greg Iles should be ashamed of himself. I had shit to do yesterday. Important shit, I tell ya. But I spent all of yesterday (and yesternight, as my three-year-old son would say) devouring the last 250...

  • Chris

    This is easily the worst book I've ever read, and I've read Jewel's book of poetry. The story seems to exist only as a vehicle for Iles to create this ludicrous world in which sexy, teenage girls are ...

  • Lori

    Greg Iles has written a 500 page novel which would make any person's stomach turn when thinking of the corruption of Natchez, Mississippi or I guess Anytown USA. This was at the core a murder mystery ...

    This book nearly finished me. 672 pages of teeny tiny print. My eyes hurt from squinting and my arms are tired from holding the book towards the light. This is one time where the kindle would have bee...

    I have enjoyed other novels by Greg Iles, but this one was disappointing, on several levels. For one thing, it was way too long; I found myself skimming through scenes that didn't seem to me to be eit...

    I disliked this book the more I read it ...I'm sure that the reason I, as a Black man, put it on my to read list is because some review must have said that it dealt with race relations in the Deep Sou...

    This was an utter disappointment. There's just no other way for me to describe it. I really enjoyed Greg Iles' first Penn Cage book, so I was looking forward to continuing the series... but now I'm no...

    Following the death of his wife, lawyer Penn Cage, turned writer, has returned to his childhood town of Natchez, Mississippi to raise his young daughter Annie. His pertner, the journalist Caitlin Mast...

  • Barbara

    Sweet Christ. This book is basically a dirty old man's fantasy: what all 16-year-old girls really want--no, what it BEST for them, is to have sex with a 40-year-old man. I get it, Greg Iles, you're ha...
