Publisher Comments:

A woman is drawn into the hunt for her sister's killer in this electrifying new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Quiet Game.

"A tour de force of suspense. It could as easily-and terrifyingly-be set in the Kansas of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood."
-The Commercial Appeal (review of 24 Hours)

With five novels, Greg Iles has proven himself one of the most talented and versatile thriller writers at work today. Critics hailed 24 Hours as "diabolical" (People), "ingenious" (London Times), "masterfully written" (New Orleans Times-Picayune), and "brilliantly plotted bone-chilling suspense" (Publishers Weekly). In Dead Sleep, Iles gives us his most intricate and emotionally resonant story ever.

Jordan Glass, a photojournalist on a well-earned vacation, wanders into a Hong Kong art museum and is puzzled to find fellow patrons eyeing her with curiosity. Minutes later, she stumbles upon a gallery containing a one-artist exhibition called "The Sleeping Women," a mysterious series of paintings that has caused a sensation in the world of modern art. Collectors have come to believe that the canvases depict female nudes not in sleep but in death, and they command millions at auction. When Jordan approaches the last work in the series, she freezes. The face in the painting seems to be her own.

This unsettling event hurls her back into a nightmare she has fought desperately to put behind her-for, in fact, the face in the painting belongs not to Jordan but to her twin sister, murdered one year ago. At the urging of the FBI, Jordan becomes both hunter and hunted in a duel with the anonymous artist, a gifted murderer who knows the secret history of Jordan's family, and truths that even she has never had the courage to face.

This was the first Greg Iles book I read after it was recommended to me by a co-worker. If you want a really good plot and fast-paced, first-rate story telling, give this one a try. My guess is you'll want to read more of this author. Just be sure you grab a snack and use the bathroom BEFORE you start reading - you won't want to put it down for even a few minutes.
