First Line: When does murder begin?

Forensic expert Cat Ferry is suspended from an FBI taskforce when she begins experiencing panic attacks at the crime scenes of a string of brutal murders in New Orleans. Digging into her psyche for answers as to why she is having problems leads her back to her hometown of Natchez, Mississippi. There she is confronted with bloody footprints in her childhood bedroom. This discovery only brings back the memories of her father’s unsolved murder when she was eight years old. She wants to find out what memories she has suppressed over the years, but what she finds out in the end might damage her even more.
Oh my gosh … I absolutely *LOVE* Greg Iles! This was another great book! This was such a fast paced book that I could barely tell that it was so big. The story line was great and tragic at the same time. Like most of his other books, this one definitely has adult content. But seriously, for those of you out there reading this who have *not* read any of his books, just try one, they’re great!

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.]
