This has more twists and turns than a person can imagine. A surprise right up to the end.

Not one of Greg Iles better books but a good read nonetheless. Every author comes out with a dud from time to time. If this is his dud, then he's still doing okay. The one thing I was very disappointed in was his introduction of his brother's exploration of homosexuality (no spoiler here). It seems that he was just jumping on the current "everybody support the gay movement" craze. It had absolutely nothing to do with the story. Some other sexual references made me scratch my head as well. The story itself, though, wasn't bad.

Loved this book. I have read all of Greg Iles novels and can hardly wait for his next one! This one was a real page turner.

I've read the previous two books of the Trilogy; they were excellent. This one? Well, I wonder if Mr. Iles caught the flu or suffered with measles or was otherwise unsettled. The story just is both over-the-top and completely underwhelming. The re-runs of "In the Heat of the Night" appear to be highly poetic and intellectual compared to this offering. Gratuitous sex, so much violence and killing, an unheroic protagonist, and so on. I like to think I've learned something when I finish a book, but this book and all that's in it, I would like to unlearn. Yuck.

I have read all of his past books and really enjoyed them. I couldn't even finish this one, reads like a soap opera, a boring soap opera. I have read other review sites where they mention the political bias in the book as the reason they didn't like it. I don't care about that, the whole story was just too wordy and a typical Southern small town corruption book.

Well, I don’t even have to say anything if you are a Greg Iles fan because you will know how good this book is. He does it again!

Hadn't read this author before. Book read like a soap opera with guns. Finished the book to see if Victor Newman made a cameo. Incredibly overwrought (and endless) dialogue. Also, for you baseball fans out there, the three references to the game were so off base (get it?) to be cringeworthy.
