Chapter 1. Alex Morse charged through the lobby of the new University Medical Center like a doctor to a code call, but she was no doctor.

Chapter 1. She was a hostage negotiator for the FBI. Twenty minutes earlier, Alex had deplaned from a flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Jackson, Mississippi, a flight prompted by her older sister’s sudden collapse at a Little League baseball game. This year had been plagued by injury and death, and there was more to come-Alex could feel it. Sighting the elevators, she checked the overhead display and saw that a car was descending.

FREE shipping on qualifying offers. I hadn't read Greg Iles in a while, so I just bought this 2002 book last week, and I've spent almost a week reading it. This is a longer than average work, and its complications and plot twists are intriguing. I always enjoyed Ellis's writing style, and in this book he delivers a thoroughly chilling adversary in Dr. Eldon Tarver, a scientific genius.

With these words, New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles returns to his trademark Southern milieu in this terrifying thriller, an unnerving tale of evil lurking beneath the veneer of idyllic suburban life.

If you wanted to kill your spouse and get away with it, you had to do something truly ingenious: something that wouldn't even be perceived as murder. And that was the service that Andrew Rusk had found a way to provide. Like any quality product, it did not come cheap. Nor did it come quickly. And perhaps most important of all, it was not for those with weak constitutions. Demand was high, of course, but few people were truly suitable clients. It took a deep-rooted hatred to watch your spouse die in agony, knowing that you had brought about that pain.

Greg Iles was born in 1960 in Germany, where his father ran the US Embassy medical clinic during the height of the Cold War.

He knew it as surely as that time off Bimini when the big swordfish had hit his bait and run like a jet ski tearing across the waves ger-than-life man of forty-six, a millionaire so many times over that he'd quit counting.

“If you wanted to kill your spouse and get away with it, you had to do something truly ingenious: something that wouldn’t even be perceived as murder. And that was the service that Andrew Rusk had found a way to provide. Like any quality product, it did not come cheap. Nor did it come quickly.

It took a deep-rooted hatred to watch your spouse die in agony, knowing that you had brought about that pain. But on the other hand, some people bore up remarkably well.” With these words, New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles returns to his trademark Southern milieu in this terrifying thriller, an unnerving tale of evil lurking beneath the veneer of idyllic suburban life. Brimming with the masterful suspense and intense psychological drama that made Turning Angel, Blood Memory, and The Quiet Game bestsellers, True Evil tells the chilling story of a divorce attorney who may be orchestrating the deaths of his clients’ spouses, bringing new meaning to the phrase “’til death do us part.” Dr. Chris Shepard is thirty-six years old, newly married, and well on his way to a perfect life. Or so he believes. But that future is forever cast into doubt the day Special Agent Alexandra Morse walks into his office and drops a bombshell: Dr. Shepard’s beautiful new wife is plotting his murder. Shepard is so shocked that he almost throws Agent Morse out of his office. Yet once he is alone, doubt begins to gnaw at him. Paranoia magnifies the small cracks in his marital relationship, and soon he can have no peace unless he knows the truth. When Agent Morse reappears, Chris agrees to act as bait to help her unravel the divorce lawyer’s scheme, which may already have cost nine unsuspecting spouses their lives. At the center of the mystery lies a maddeningly simple question: If these people really were murdered, why can’t the FBI prove it? Rigorous autopsies have uncovered no forensic evidence of foul play, and the police believe no crimes have occurred. As Dr. Shepard and Agent Morse struggle against an invisible adversary, Shepard realizes that he’s working with a desperate woman. The reason: the killer’s last known victim was Alex Morse’s sister, who from her deathbed accused her husband of murder and extracted a vow that Alex save her ten-year-old nephew from his father. This has driven Alex to risk both her life and her career to fulfill that vow. But Chris Shepard soon feels desperation of his own. As he probes his wife’s hidden past, he is confronted by the probability that the woman he loves wants him dead. He has adopted her son and given her everything he has to give, and yet somewhere out there, a killer with the brilliance to outwit the top forensic scientists in the world is closing in on him. Who is this merciless assassin? Why is murder an art form for him? And what clues could exist to lead them to a man of such twisted talents? Not even the clients who hire him know his identity, and the lawyer who works with him fears him above all else. Most terrifying, those who choose murder over divorce soon learn a terrible truth: once set in motion, the instrument of their anger cannot be stopped.

One of my favorite authors has hit it out of the park again! Greg Iles has written another novel, True Evil, set in rural Mississippi incorporating some of the cast of characters we know from previous novels, but in an original stand alone book. It has crime, international intrigue, sex, romance, suspense, graphic action, family loyalty and just about every other hook an action/ thriller can have to keep the reader engaged throughout the story. Well developed characters are involved in the story, including one of the most evil I have encountered in my reading. Start this book when you know you will have some time to finish it, because you will not want to put it down.

In essence, this novel explores a theme that has occupied crime novelists as long as the genre has existed, committing the perfect murder. It also explores a proposition that has long interested me as a biochemist and cell biologist. A trained molecular biologist who is also a psychopath could become a formidable murderer and terrorist, particularly if he had access to abundant resources. Iles pushes this theme further by having the individual serve with the Army Biological Warfare Program, then cooperate with a divorce lawyer who plots solutions to unhappy marriages (unsolvable murders). I like the fact that Iles has done considerable homework and sticks to the real concepts of molecular biology and virology in describing the basic science of his central proposition for his killer, rather than creating “science facts” to advance his plot, as some other novelists have. However, to me, the plot falls apart when he endows his murderer with superhuman capabilities, allowing him to create a controllable retrovirus that causes cancer in a short, defined period of time. I am not a virology expert, but I suspect it would take a team of expert scientists in a well-funded lab years to do the preparation and testing that the killer has done on his own with limited resources while working a full time job. Give me a break! This problem has always been my issue with Isles’ novels, the tendency to drift into the preposterous, whether as a plot element or situation. And I do understand that this is what probably sells his books.
Other than the psychopathic killer, the characters are from Isles’ stock company: the troubled female FBI agent rebelling against the agency bureaucracy, the honest young doctor (and his hot wife) who is an associate of Dr. Tom Cage, the greed- driven lawyer, the retired cop and father figure of the chief protagonist and the children of the protagonist and young doctor. Even Penn Cage makes a cameo. The setting in Natchez and Jackson is really just a convenience. There is little of the Southern flavor of the Penn Cage novels by Isles.
In spite of my issues with the preposterous nature of the plot, I still recommend this novel as a good read. After all, preposterous stories are what drive “thriller” fiction.

I have read many of Greg Iles' books and have enjoyed each one. I like the way he developes his characters. And I like that he brings old characters into the lives of his new characters. His plots are well thought out (albeit implausible sometimes) and he wraps up all loose ends. Anybody who likes Baldacci, DeMille, Coulter and others like them will enjoy Isles. I strongly suggest reading his Natchez/Cage etc. books in order so that one can fully see the strands and growth of characters and connection s.
I have read two of the three Nathcez trilogy books and am looking forward to Mississippi Blood

I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this book. Every character was whole and solid. It's a long book, but I was happy for every page; in fact, the price of most books sometimes makes me feel that I'm getting cheated when there are very few pages. Of course, there are many books when one wants to say, "Editor, editor, editor, where are you?" No so with True Evil.

You can read many reviews that give an in-depth synopsis, even in-depth spoilers, but I won't bore you with too much of that yet again. Suffice it to say, Erin Morse was a former FBI agent who was trying to avenge the death of her beloved sister while at the same time saving her nephew, others - and herself - from very bad, money-hungry people. Big strong, mean villains and jealous, petty, bureaucratic FBI agents, along with a cast of doctors, wives, and other minor characters, make this a very entertaining, thrilling story. Sometimes books written in past years fail to draw me in because it's hard for me to get past not having up-to-date technology to aid the characters. In this case, it didn't matter, because the story was so well written.

I recommend this book to everyone who loves thrilling adventure, mystery, mayhem, and all out dirty fun. Read it!

I genuinely enjoyed this book - good characterization, suspenseful plot, lots of details adding to the mystery and suspense. with books like these, I think it's best to not discuss the plot although so many reviewers want to give away too much of the plot and that just takes away the fun of reading it. so read it. if you like murder mysteries involving brave women, valiant men, poison, genetics, and mean,greedy evil doers, you'll love this. .

True Evil is a page turner -- well developed characters and an interesting plot. I anticipate learning while reading novels and True Evil does not disappoint. With Greg Iles, it's not a matter of figuring out who did the deed but how and why. If you enjoy medical mysteries or psychological dramas, True Evil will be a very satisfying read.

This is a good, well-constructed story and I knocked off a star for a few places that didn't quite work. For example, he has a bad guy sneaking around an occupied house going into the attic using one collapsible stair, then coming down in the master closet using another collapsible stair. There may be such a stair somewhere that is whisper quiet, but I've never encountered one, and I have used several different versions. I won't detail the other examples. For me, such quirks interrupt the story flow, causing me to flip back to see if I missed something
