Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Greg Iles's novels have been praised for their unusual depth of characterization and complexity of plot, and The Quiet Game was no exception. Reviewers called it "beautifully crafted" (The Providence Sunday Journal), "heartbreakingly honest" (Cleveland Plain Dealer), and simply "a grand thriller with a wonderful Southern seasoning" (The Orange County Register). In 24 Hours, Iles takes readers on a daringly executed roller-coaster ride with enough twists and surprises to last a lifetime.

24 Hours begins with the perfect family. On the perfect night. About to become trapped in the perfect crime. Will Jennings is a successful young doctor in Jackson, Mississippi, with a thriving practice, a beautiful wife, and a five-year-old daughter he loves beyond measure. But Will and his family are being watched by a con man and psychopath who may be a genius. A man who has crafted the unbeatable crime. A man who has never been caught and whose victims have never talked to the police. A man whose life's work strikes at the heart of every family's unspoken fear: the unstoppable kidnapping.

But this man has never met the likes of Will and Karen Jennings.

Review:

"The one-on-one conflicts punch up the pace, and a perfect Mississippi setting, a spot-on sendup of FBI assistance and a hair-raising finale complete the package." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Just as Iles made computers central to the plot of Mortal Fear, he cleverly uses cellular phones and private planes here." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Hickey, a kidnapper and con man, thinks he has orchestrated the perfect crime. He targets young families and he's never been caught. He keeps getting away with it because he never hurts the kid and he never asks for more money than his victims can raise in 24 hours without raising suspicion. But he's never met Will and Karen Jennings. Hickey, with the help of his wife, Cheryl, and his slow giant of a cousin, Marvin, kidnaps the Jennings' daughter. But Hickey has overlooked one factor: the girl is a diabetic. While Hickey holds Karen at the family's home, Marvin holds the daughter at a secluded cabin and Hickey's wife holds Will at a third location. By dividing his quarry, Hickey thinks he has them, but Will and Karen are desperate and will do anything to overpower him. Their hair-raising night from hell pushes every mass market button in this edge-of-your-seat read.

Synopsis:

Twenty-four hours is how long it takes a madman to pull off the perfect crime. He's done it before. But this time, he's picked the wrong family to terrorize. Will and Karen Jennings won't watch helplessly as he victimizes them. And they aren't going to let him get away with it.
