The Quiet Game by Greg Iles
The inside book jacket for Ace Atkin's The Lost Ones contained this review quote by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "Lee Child's Jack Reacher and Greg Iles' Penn Cage will find a kindred spirit in U.S. Army Ranger Quinn Colson."
I love Reacher and Quinn Colson is a wonderful new discovery for me. I didn't know anything about Penn Cage. So I marched down to my Gulf Shores library and checked out The Quiet Game. If you haven't read it. Do.
The story is set in Natchez, Mississippi, a wonderfully Southern town. I've been to Natchez several times and toured antebellum mansions and enjoyed it's hospitality.
One of the things that constantly amazes me is the number of excellent writers who are waiting for me to discover them. Greg Iles is a New York Times bestselling author and I had never heard of him. Now I have and I'm going to be reading more of his books. He's great.
And the review excerpt was correct. I really liked Penn Cage.
