Synopsis: Turning Angel marks the long-awaited return of Penn Cage, the lawyer hero of The Quiet Game, and introduces Drew Elliott, the highly respected doctor who saved Penn?s life in a hiking accident when they were boys. As two of the most prominent citizens of Natchez, Drew and Penn sit on the school board of their alma mater, St. Stephen?s Prep. When the nude body of a young female student is found near the Mississippi River, the entire community is shocked - but no one more than Penn, who discovers that his best friend was entangled in a passionate relationship with the girl and may be accused of her murder. On the surface, Kate Townsend seems the most unlikely murder victim imaginable. A star student and athlete, she?d been accepted to Harvard and carried the hope and pride of the town on her shoulders. But like her school and her town, Kate also had a secret life - one about which her adult lover knew little. When Drew begs Penn to defend him, Penn allows his sense of obligation to override his instinct and agrees. Yet before he can begin, both men are drawn into a dangerous web of blackmail and violence. Drew reacts like anything but an innocent man, and Penn finds himself doubting his friend?s motives and searching for a path out of harm?s way. More dangerous yet is Shad Johnson, the black district attorney whose dream is to send a rich white man to death row in Mississippi. At Shad?s order, Drew is jailed, the police cease hunting Kate?s killer, and Penn realizes that only by finding Kate?s murderer himself can he save his friend?s life. With his daughter?s babysitter as his guide, Penn penetrates the secret world of St. Stephen?s, a place that parents never see, where reality veers so radically from appearance that Penn risks losing his own moral compass. St. Stephen?s is a dark mirror of the adult world, one populated by steroid-crazed jocks, girls desperate for attention, jaded teens flirting with nihilism, and hidden among them all - one true psychopath. It is Penn?s journey into the heart of his alma mater that gives Turning Angel its hypnotic power, for on that journey he finds that the intersection of the adult and nearly adult worlds is a dangerous place indeed. By the time Penn arrives at the shattering truth behind Kate Townsend?s death, his quiet Southern town will never be the same. Full of brilliant plot twists and shocking details, Turning Angel is Iles?s most intricate and unforgettable story yet.
"Greg Iles's storytelling blazes like a supernova" (BookPage) in this ingeniously twisting and atmospheric New York Times bestseller.
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.
