    Myfanwy Thomas awakes in a London park surrounded by dead bodies. With her memory gone, her only hope of survival is to trust the instructions left in her pocket by her former self. She quickly learns that she is a Rook, a high-level operative in a secret agency that protects the world from supernatural threats. But there is a mole inside the organization - and this person wants her dead.

    Story

    I thought the narration was really good, lots of different characters but you could tell who each one was. The book had some humor, which is always good. The heroine was really likable. The story weaved the near past and the present but it was done well and wasn't confusing. I really enjoyed The Rook and hope there is a sequel on the horizon.

    As a prosecutor in Houston, Penn Cage sent killers to death row. But as mayor of his hometown - Natchez, Mississippi - Penn will face his most dangerous threat. Urged by old friends to try to restore this fading jewel of the Old South, Penn has ridden into office on a tide of support for change. But in its quest for new jobs and fresh money, Natchez has turned to casino gambling, and now five steamboats float on the river beside the old slave market, like props from Gone With the Wind.

    I can only agree with the previous reviews, I like Greg Iles books. I hated the narration. Horrible fake southern accent. When he read for the women, it was like chewing glass to listen to it: screeching, high pitched and irritating.

    An ongoing string of high-profile and very public murder-suicides has San Francisco even more rattled than a string of recent earthquakes: A flamboyant fashion designer burns to death, clutching the body of his murdered lover. A superstar 49er jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge. And most shocking of all, a U.S. attorney launches her BMW off a highway overpass, killing herself and three others.

    Maureen says: "Hated it"

    Overall

    Really poor dialogue. The story has a pretty good premise, but I couldn't get over the exchanges b/w characters. The narrator does a nice job.
