“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.

Turning Angel will have you wondering where Greg Iles has been all your life.” ―USA Today

About the Author:

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.
