Some novels by Greg Iles are the Penn Cage novels, which include "The Quiet Game," "Turning Angel" and "The Devil's Punchbowl." These novels follow a lawyer who returns to his hometown of Natchez, Mississippi, and is forced to confront corruption, murder and racial tensions. In addition to the Penn Cage novels, Iles has published many standalone novels across several genres, including the thrillers "Mortal Fear" and "True Evil."
Iles' first published novel, "Spandau Phoenix," revolves around a German police sergeant tracking down an escaped Nazi war criminal who faked his own death. Iles' second World War II thriller, "Black Cross," follows two unlikely heroes on a covert mission to prevent the Nazis from developing poison gases in a concentration camp. "Black Cross" was highly acclaimed when it was released, earning a starred review in Publisher's Weekly.
Many of Iles' novels take place in the author's home state, and many take place in Iles' city. Both "Blood Memory" and "Sleep No More," as well as "True Evil," take place in Natchez, Mississippi. Iles has also published several novels in the "Locked-Room Thriller" genre, including "Third Degree" and "24 Hours." Both of these novels revolve around protagonists who are confined to their homes and forced to rely on their wits to survive.
