Great characters, great thriller, keeps you guessing until the end and lots of sub plots.

CoverToCoverGirl A throughly engaging read...I think I have thing for Penn Cage, he‘s such a multifaceted character. Greg Iles is an extremely gifted writer! 11mo
TrishB @CoverToCoverGirl agree totally 👍🏻 11mo

Another solid thriller from Iles. I think some people would be put off by some of the subject matter but the story was still very strong with many twists and turns. 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘m at 36 books for the year and I think that will probably be it for me since I doubt I will get another full read in by tomorrow! Didn‘t quite hit my goal but considering I had baby #2 in March i think this is pretty good!

LisaJo This summer I was in Mississippi so I visited Natchez cuz I am a big Greg Iles fan. I even went to the cemetery to visit the Turning Angel in person. If I could post a picture to this feed I would. But, alas, not yet Litsy. I do have a picture of it somewhere in my feed, but it‘s probably a while back. 11mo
avgeyer @LisaJo that‘s so cool! I would love to visit Natchez and see what it really looks like. 11mo

I‘m a huge Greg Iles fan. I took a detour on my way to Jackson Mississippi today to visit Natchez. One of the sites I went to see was the Turning Angel in the city cemetery. The statute is mentioned in many of his books. And, obviously by what I have tagged, has its own book.Since it was during the day, I didn‘t get a chance to see if it followed me, which I believe, you can only see at night when car lights are on it.

Reecaspieces Yep! You went...best cemetery ever! I am jealous of this trip. I need to go back 1y
Dragon So cool. I read this book. Thanks for posting the photo. 👍🐉 1y

Nice of you to have birthday cake as the emoji for the day on my birthday! 😂 Used the Birthday part of the theme with Turning Angel, the second 📚 in the excellent Penn Cage series. In this one they are investigating the murder of a girl two weeks before her eighteenth birthday. A great connection with it being the 18th today! #novemberbythenumbers #18 #eighteen

Reecaspieces Great book! And if you ever get a chance...go see the turning angel in person. Pretty neat. The whole cemetery is amazing 2y

Penn Cage is causing me some serious sleep deprivation... stayed up 2 nights this week until nearly 3 am...can't put these books down! My only imperative is to read, read, read this series.. NOW! Non stop hair raising action, with a gritty terrifyingly disturbing heart pounding plot full of twists & turns from start to finish.. Iles delves deeply into the dark underbelly of society... this series is not for the faint of heart! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ of 5 ❤️

Booknerd2 The series ONLY GETS BETTER!!!! 😊 3y

The Greg Iles series is set in the southern landscapes that stretch from Texas to Florida. Great series that reflects the culture.

I nabbed that copy of Turning Angel on the give-a-book, take-a-book bookcase at the marina. Greg Iles is one of my favorite authors. Didn't think I'd be adding a book to my collection on this trip to the 1000 Islands. I supposed I should have known better.

[DELETED] 2232195534 I love Greg Iles and liked this one very much. Penn Cage is a favorite of mine. 😀 3y
Tav @kaysreadinglife awesome, good to know you give this the thumbs up. Have you read Natchez Burning and 3y
[DELETED] 2232195534 Have read Natchez Burning and am hoarding The Bone Tree until closer to publication date of final book in trilogy. 😀 3y
Tav @kaysreadinglife wise idea because now I have to re-read both books to remember what happened. 3y
