Greg Iles
Greg Iles
Greg Iles gained notice for his smart, what-if storylines based on World War II scenarios; but when he turned to his own territory to write suspenseful, modern crime stories set in the American South, that's when readers really sat up and took notice.

Biography

Greg Iles has led a sort of double life as a novelist. His first books, based on extrapolations from real events in World War II, earned him an initial following, but his very modern crime novels are what currently hold his -- and his readers' -- focus. His tight pacing and chilling, innovative concepts have made him especially attractive to Hollywood, which has optioned and/or expressed interest in several of his books.

Iles's first novel, Spandau Phoenix, was about the secret escape of a Nazi soldier and the chilling plot related in his discovered diaries. It was a mixed success critically, earning praise for its premise but low marks on style. Since then, Iles has clearly developed as a novelist, and branched out in themes too.

With his second novel, Black Cross, Iles displayed more of a voice and more streamlined plotting in his story of a conspiracy to use the Nazi's own weapons against them. Those first two titles did become bestsellers; but by the time Iles shifted gears to write crime thrillers set in his native Mississippi, he found himself getting even more attention -- and better reviews. His next two books, Mortal Fear and The Quiet Game, remain his personal favorites. Iles was born in Stuttgart, Germany, where his father was in charge of the medical clinic at the U.S. Embassy, in 1961. He graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1983 and played guitar in a rock band for several years before trying his hand at writing novels.

Moving from screenplays to thrillers to speculative historical fiction, Iles continues to stretch as a writer. He also indulges his love for music (he once played guitar in the band Frankly Scarlet) by performing with the Rock Bottom Remainders, an author side project that includes writers Stephen King, Dave Barry, Ridley Pearson, and Amy Tan

Good To Know

After graduation from college, Iles worked as an x-ray and lab technician for his father, dug ditches, and worked as a professional guitarist and singer.

Iles has the ability to be gloomily prophetic, but not intentionally. In an online chat in 1997, a fan pointed out that some real-life Internet-related murders had followed his Mortal Fear. Iles responded: "A lot of my books have been that way. My World War II thriller about Sarin gas [Black Cross] was published two months before the Sarin attack in the Japanese subway. There are very weird coincidences out there. And I do have one surefire plot I have not and probably never will write, because of my fear someone will carry it out."

Iles's wife is a high-school sweetheart whom he married when he was 29.

    beware the book is in german

    Fortunately with only a short amount of time spent the customer service agreed to issue a refund for this purchase. Besides being written in German, another review states it is basically the translated version of Devil's Punchbowl, whcih I have already read. Love Greg Iles, but they do hima disservice by not making these facts clear on the catalog item description.

    German translation of DEVIL's PUNCHBOWL.

    This is the translation of THE DEVIL'S PUNCHBOWL. Very acurate translation, but it should be noted in bold letters by the publisher!

    I have to agree with the majority of the comments regarding this

    I have to agree with the majority of the comments regarding this authors books being writen in german. I have been looking forward to reading a new novel written by Grey Iles but am unable to read german. Maybe this author has lost a few marbles in his head because as far as I know none of his newer books have been written in ENGLISH! I would imagine that because of this he has lost many of his devoted readers which I am sure has affected the sales of his books greatly. I am very disappointed with this author and hope that he just forgot to have his newer books printed in english and that soon we will see the english versions of these books so most of his readers can again continue to enjoy his novels.

    Customer service is no stars

    This is ridiculous. Why would you send a book for download in a foreign language? Customer service is a joke, you go online to get it rectified and they tell you to call and state "Oh yeah, we're really busy so it may take awhile". I wish I knew how bad the service was before I bought the Nook

    If you speak german, this is the book for you.

    I was awaiting the next Penn Cage novel with great enthusiam. Especially after the last novel "Devil's Punch Bowl".

    I haven't any idea why Iles would release a book here in the U.S. in german. Did the germans get the one in english? I'm too old to study up on the little german I studied 30 years ago.
