Description

After winning the most dangerous case of his career, prosecutor Penn Cage decides to remain in his Southern hometown to raise his young daughter in a safe haven. But nowhere is truly safe -- not from long-buried secrets, or murder....When the nude body of prep school student Kate Townsend is found near the Mississippi River, Penn's best friend, Drew Elliott, is desperate for his counsel. An esteemed family physician, Drew makes a shocking confession that could put him on death row. Penn will do all he can to exonerate Drew, but in a town where the gaze of a landmark cemetery statue -- the Turning Angel -- never looks away, Penn finds himself caught on the jagged edge of blackmail, betrayal, and deadly violence.

Praise For Turning Angel

"What does a book's plot need to entice you? Sex, drugs, murder? How about sleazy politicians, bigotry, gunfights...and more sex?...If you haven't yet discovered [Iles], Turning Angel will have you wondering where he has been all your life."

-- USA Today

"Explosive...a powerful piece of popular fiction."

-- Chicago Sun Times
