First Line: I am standing in line for Walt Disney’s It’s a Small World ride, holding my four-year-old daughter in my arms, trying to entertain her as the serpentine line of parents and children moves slowly toward the flat-bottomed boats emerging from the grotto to the music of an endless audio loop.
Prosecutor turned novelist Penn Cage returns to his hometown of Natchez, Mississippi, a few months after his wife’s death to sort things out with his young daughter. But peace and quiet is the last thing that he gets, for instead he finds himself mixed up in a murder investigation. Unfortunately, the murder happened some twenty years in the past and everyone seems to want to forget about it. But Penn cannot leave well enough alone and insists on seeing the case solved.
I loved this book!! I love Greg Iles’ books and this one definitely does not disappoint. It was full of lots of intrigue and twists and turns. This book is definitely a page turner and I highly recommend it! [Note: There is a lot of adult material in this book.]
