Attorney for New Orleans, the New Orleans chief of police, the sheriff of Jefferson Parish, and various other big shots. It’s amazing how they come out of the woodwork when there’s a whiff of success in the air.

"An intricate and emotionally resonant story from one of the most versatile thriller writers at work today. Jordan Glass, a photojournalist on a well-earned vacation, wanders into a Hong Kong art museum and is puzzled to find fellow patrons eying 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."
  • exceptional !!!!! very,very good!! enjoyed !!

  • Simply a poor novel, by an author who has written much better books. The characters are unsympathetic, the plot is implausible, and the reader is left not caring about the ending at all.


  • Loved it!!

  • I downloaded this book because I saw it on a (want to read list) from someone on Goodreads. The title inspired me to look into the reviews of the book and I was hooked! I am not one for going into a lot of detail, I HAVE HAD TOO MANY BOOKS SPOILED FOR ME THAT WAY. Even reading the reviews on this book could have left some major parts out. I guess I'm saying is that this was an excellent book for me. A lot of twists throughout the book. Even though some might criticize the incompetency of the FBI in this story, I couldn't have cared less- IT'S A STORY!!! Well written, I loved the way he wrote about Jordan's character, some background eh? All in all for me this was a 5 star, (and I'm sticking to it!) Great imagination, I'm sick of all these alcoholic woman who see things in their stupor and don't do anything about it until the last chapter, Give me a book I can sink my teeth into , thank you very much!

  • I bought this book after reading my first novel by Greg Iles. There was an excerpt of this novel at the end of that book, and it interested me so much that I had to buy it. Mr Iles is a sophisticated, talented author who writes very interesting fiction-that's my evaluation after reading 2 of his novels. I will certainly buy more-from AMAZON'S USED BOOKS SELLERS. I have never been unsatisfied by books sent from used book sellers on Amazon. The plot centers on murders of women who were painted in death. These paintings were called "Sleeping Women". One picture in Asia stunned a war-photographer, who saw her own face and body on a picture being shown in an art gallery. I won't give away anymore of this interesting story, except to say that the "Bad Person" isn't easy to detect in the course of the plot. There are actually many people to suspect. The reason I gave the novel a 4 instead of a 5 is that some of the events are pretty unlikely in "the real world", although our real world is pretty strange now itself!

  • This story plot really had me hooked. I could barely put the book down. I liked the cast of characters. Unfortunately, Iles tread into so much sex, rape and abuse you loose the fun of the mystery. You get exhausted in the sordidness. Why does every woman need to be raped or abused in his books? These seem to be a recurrent themes in his books. The ending was too drawn out and gave the heroine almost superhuman skills, intelligence and strength to save herself. Maybe I just like my heroes believable.
    After reading several of Iles books, and initially liking the premise , storyline and characters , flawed and otherwise, and being drawn into the story, I am disappointed because Iles cannot resist dirtying the story ending with dehumanizing sex , and over the top heroics.
    I am beginning to wonder if the fun of the beginning of his books is worth the disappointing endings. Of course I may not live long enough to finish the trilogy of Natchez Burning.

  • Greg Iles is a master of the imaginative crime, complex plot and conflicted characters. This novel is typical. The story involves a world-famous photographer who discovers a painting of her missing identical twin sister, a serial kidnap victim in New Orleans, in a gallery in Hong Kong. The painting is one of a series of nude “sleeping” women, possibly dead, that has become a favorite of rich collectors. The story quickly morphs into an FBI procedural as the photographer joins an FBI team in New Orleans to correlate the paintings with the missing women and to find the perpetrator(s). I have two major issues with this story which lower its appeal for me. First, I thought the ending was too sweet, though I am sure many readers appreciate a happy ending. Second, I am not a fan of Iles’ typical “thriller” sequences, in which he puts his protagonists into a precarious position from which they must rescue themselves by almost superhuman efforts. However, I am sure that these sequences sell more books (and movie scripts?) than the parts I like. I also have two minor quibbles. The book is one of the “Mississippi” series, though almost nothing of consequence happens in that state. Iles seems to have a minor obsession with Viet Nam and its veterans, though maybe that is simply a convenient plot element.
    Although the basic plot is quite interesting, I thought that this book bogged down in the middle of the story and was less compelling than many of Iles' other efforts.
