Turning Angel by Greg Iles
Last week, I started the Penn Cage series from Greg Isles, and the first book in that series, The Quiet Game, is even better than I initially described. The skins of the onion keep coming off as he unravels a very complex conspiracy.
As I’ve said, when I discover a new series, I follow my own recommendation to start from the beginning. So, it’s on to Penn Cage #2, Turning Angel. Cage remains in Natchez, Mississippi and promises to help his childhood friend, a prominent physician who saved his life when they were young, when he is accused of the murder of a high school student. Once again, the rich characters and layered plot will draw you in to his world.
