Eve Sumner has an uncanny resemblance to a long-dead woman with whom John Waters was once obsessively in love. The successful Mississippi oilman's college affair with Mallory Candler ended long before she was killed, but the mysterious Eve knows things about that affair that only Mallory could have known. That's more than a coincidence, since Eve is actually Mallory's reincarnationor, at least, she's the corporeal body into which Mallory's restless soul seems to have migrated. Long before the bizarre denouement of this supernatural thriller--a departure for Iles, whose previous thrillers have been much more straightforward--the reader's sympathies have been engaged by Waters, a decent man whose best friend may be his worst enemy and whose past may destroy his future. Iles has many gifts as a storyteller, including ingenious plotting and solid pacing, both of which are on display here, but this foray into the occult doesn't show them off to best advantage. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Going over old territory hot-and-bothered small-town Mississippi Iles tells the story of an obsessive love that seems literally to haunt John Waters. Waters has just encountered an enticing stranger who reveals something known only to his former flame, supposedly long dead. Dare we say that when the stranger is murdered, our protagonist finds himself in hot water?
