I LOVE this entire Mississippi series -- read them in order, starting with the Quiet Game and then Turning Angel, then Devil's Punchbowl. It's a fantastic series of books, with elements of family drama, legal thriller, Southern gothic. It's exciting, a great portrait of a small town in the deep South, with threads of racial tension, mystery, and a series of family and town secrets unfolding over the course of the series. I CANNOT understand why these aren't huge bestsellers. There's only one caveat -- the Devil's Punchbowl ends on a cliffhanger (a real doozy), and the follow up has been delayed. It's supposed to be coming out end of 2011, but word is, it will ALSO end with a cliffhanger. Greg Iles, what are you doing to me? But seriously. These books are a great find, if you haven't read them before.
