24 Hours

by Greg Iles

June 1, 2001 | Trade Paperback

24 Hours is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
Greg Iles''s novels have been praised for their unusual depth of characterization and complexity of plot, and The Quiet Game was no exception. Reviewers called it "beautifully crafted" (The Providence SundayJournal), "heartbreakingly honest" (Cleveland Plain Dealer), and simply "a grand thriller with a wonderful Southern seasoning" (The Orange County Register). In 24 Hours, Iles takes readers on a daringly executed roller-coaster ride with enough twists and surprises to last a lifetime.

24 Hours begins with the perfect family. On the perfect night. About to become trapped in the perfect crime. Will Jennings is a successful young doctor in Jackson, Mississippi, with a thriving practice, a beautiful wife, and a five-year-old daughter he loves beyond measure. But Will and his family are being watched by a con man and psychopath who may be a genius. A man who has crafted the unbeatable crime. A man who has never been caught and whose victims have never talked to the police. A man whose life''s work strikes at the heart of every family''s unspoken fear: the unstoppable kidnapping.

But this man has never met the likes of Will and Karen Jennings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I read this book some time ago and it was my first intro to Greg Iles. I was sold! I highly recommend this book; you won't be able to put it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forget about sleep for the next 24 HOURS!! If someone took your child, what would you do to get them back? What if you were dealing with a criminal who had devised a plan so perfectly, that he brags about how many times he has done it before? What if you decided this was the last time he got away with it? This is, without question, one of my favourite books of all time. You will not be able to put it down! I have told 12 people about this book, and EVERY one of them, absolutely loved it. From the opening page, Iles knows how to weave a tale. It's about the "perfect crime" gone bad. If you love a good thriller, and you don't know Greg Iles, THIS is the book to start with. You will run out and get everything else he has done. Make sure you pick up "The Quiet Game" too. Get these two books, and I promise it'll be 20 bucks well worth parting with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 24 Hours I was unable to put this book down for very long after beginning it! It is without question one of the best books I have ever read. Very suspenseful, very quick moving, a different twist every chapter.
