Turning Angel by Greg Isles

Title: Turning Angel

Author: Greg Isles

Genre: Fiction

Summary: A murder brings out the worst in a small Mississippi town.

The Take-Away: If a fraction of truth exists about the town's teenagers, most parents would take away the car keys, cell phones and install bars over the windows.

While most parents might expect drugs, few would expect the level of sexual experience and activity of the 16-18 year olds. When Penn Cage hears the confession of his best friend, Drew Elliot, Penn knows that more exists to the story then a 17 year old playing with sexual power she doesn't understand. Drew believes that his love was returned.

As Penn digs through the layers of Natchez, he learns about the unraveling of society at what should be the most promising level.

Recommendation: Read it and keep your kids under lock and key.
