by Peter Straub
Iles doesn't go halfway when it comes to endorsing books on his official web site. He lists more than 65 titles and even has special markers for books he feels "deserve superior merit on prose, plot and/or authorial insight." In an online chat in 1997, he praised Peter Straub in particular:"I think the guy is a genius. The book Koko is just unbelievable." Here are some others that make the cut.

by Greg Iles
Iles offers a chilling body-swap story similar to the Harrison Ford thriller What Lies Beneath; only in this case, the haunting spirit is not a mistress but an old college girlfriend who happens to have tried killing her love interest a couple of times already.

by Greg Iles
Iles's book 24 Hours, which he adapted himself in a five-day period when he had the flu, hits theaters in fall 2002 with stars Charlize Theron, Kevin Bacon and Courtney Love -- but the title will be Trapped, most likely to avoid confusion with the Fox series 24 and another 2002 film release, The Hours.
