From Publishers Weekly
While not as twisty as True Evil (2006), bestseller Iles's new thriller injects both depth and novelty into a genre convention—the jealous husband who's tipped off to his wife's infidelity. When Laurel Shields, a 35-year-old mother of two, discovers she's pregnant, she can't be sure her physician husband, Warren, is the father. Meanwhile, Warren is in trouble with the IRS. Laurel believes his obsessive search for a document in their Athens Point, Miss., home is related to a federal Medicaid fraud investigation focusing on his medical partner, Kyle Auster. As the Feds prepare to swoop down on Warren and Kyle's office to collect the evidence of false billings and bribes to patients without any actual illnesses, Warren takes Laurel and their two children hostage. Iles squeezes every drop of suspense out of the prolonged standoff between the doctor and the police. While the ending may be a little too pat to be plausible, Iles avoids turning Warren into a clichéd bad guy by making his descent into madness understandable. (Nov.)

Top customer reviews
The first 20% of the pages were dedicated to showing us the depth of the illicit relationship between Dr Squire`s wife and her lover.This was done to make the book long enough to be published. This dismal, repetitive prose was better suited to a Harlequin page turner for adolescent girls.
It gets worse. The next 30% made me think of a television show in its fourth season and the writers ran out of material at the end of th we described season.This forced them to go to ridiculous character development and stupid dialogue
No more Greg Iles go err this reader.
