Greg Iles was born in 1960 in Germany. He founded the band Frankly Scarlet, plays guitar for the Rock Bottom Remainders, and is the New York Times bestselling author of nine novels, including Blood Memory and 24 Hours. He lives in Natchez, Mississippi.
As a Golden Voice (so honored by Audiofile Magazine), winner of 3 Audies and dozens of Earphone Awards, Dick Hill brings his own personal touch of vocal creativity to every project.
He brings stories to life with a wide variety of characterizations, dialects, and accents...reviewers have compared his work to a full cast recording. His rich baritone and insightful interpretations have also earned him praise for his many non-fiction titles.From AudioFile:
A female high school superstar is raped and murdered in Natchez, Mississippi. Suspicion falls on her lover, a married doctor who is the friend of narrator/writer/lawyer Penn Cage. Dick Hill wraps this first-person narrative in a soft Southern accent and makes the most of the opportunity the plot offers to bring to life a 9-year-old daughter, an African-American drug lord, the doctor's chemically dependent wife, local lawmen, a Yankee professor, and a Croatian exchange student grown beyond his years. At one point, Cage is held captive and injected with heroin, the effects of which he painfully describes. The plot twists might strain your imagination, but the characters ring true--thanks to a tour-de-force performance. J.B.G.
