Natchez BurningN deep into the past into the heart of a conspiracy of greed and murder involving the Double Eagles a vicious KKK crew headed by one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the state Now Penn must follow a bloody trail that stretches back forty years to one undeniable fact no one black or white young or old brave or not is ever truly saf ☆☆☆☆☆ “não” “nee” “neit” “nein” “no Oh I’m sorry Am I being repetitive? Does that bug you? You might not want to read this for that and numerous other reasonsA GR 2014 nominee for Mystery Thriller Described as an intelligent thriller which is probably why I added it to my tbr and why I had to wait a l o n g time for my turn on Overdrive What I don’t know and cannot understand is why I finished the 850 pages Admittedly I was liking the first 400 when the plane started losing power and thrust with the inevitable outcome Everybody’s dead I mean what was the point?”Exactly Caitlin what was it exactly? Except you and Penn don’t die because that would be like killing off Tom Cruise in the Mission Impossible series Most of the others are tortured and mutilated then murdered by flaying crucifixion burning etc over and over and over again Pay attention to the title And the reader’s reward for this? A plot that does not resolve It’s #1 of a trilogy and the main mysteries are all left hanging I felt like hanging myself after finishing this I need a book antidote I need to create a new shelf Total Waste Of My Time

Tchez Mississippi Penn Cage learned everything he knows about honor and duty from his father Tom Cage But now the beloved family doctor is accused of murdering Viola Turner the beautiful nurse with whom he worked in the early 1960s A fighter who has always stood for justice Penn is determined to save his fatherThe uest for answers sends Pen Natchez Burning by Greg Iles is a 2014 William Morrow publication I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewSince we last caught up with Penn Cage his father has survived a heart attack and Penn is now the mayor of Natchez and preparing to marry his long time girlfriend Caitlyn Before the wedding can take place all hell breaks loose literally A former nurse for Tom Cage has died of terminal cancer Her son Lincoln believes Dr Cage performed an assisted suicide and is livid He has the DA a long time enemy of Penn's believing Dr Cage committed murder and now Tom is facing prison Penn will go to any length to prevent this from happening As a result Penn will learn many things about the father he idolized his whole life and will uncover some of the most horrendous racial crimes committed in Natchez in the mid to late 1960's Viola was Tom's nurse during the sixties and she was a beautiful African American woman with whom Tom may have had than a professional relationship with While this relationship is at the heart of many personal issues relating to Viola's death it is also the gateway that leads Penn to investigate the murder of Viola's brother back in the 1960's right before Viola left for Chicago Race crimes in this period of time were certainly not unheard of and were played across the nation giving Mississippi a reputation it lives with even now But those were just the ones that made it into the spotlight Some of these old cases were never solved Viola's brother and a young man that may have been having an affair with a white girl whose father was one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the state are a few examples Naturally the girl's father would go to great lengths to break that up maybe even murder In fact he may have been involved in organizing a top secret group of men that went well beyond anything the KKK ever thought about doing Now many of those men are approaching the end of their lives and some of them are riddled with guilt and remorse prompting others to take drastic measures to keep them from making death bed confessions The fear that Viola might tell a few tales makes Penn think someone and not his father murdered her Penn must deal with his old nemesis Shad the DA a rogue sheriff his ambitious fiance his mother's protective instinct the shock of his father's past Tom's refusal to talk about certain things and the knowledge that his father is lying to him The deeper he digs and the he unearths of the past the danger he and his father are in because someone will do anything to keep the past and all its sins buried This type of book is the reason I refuse to hand out five star ratings nilly willy When a book this good comes along it deserves that honor and only books that really stand out like this one should be given a top rating Wow Just Wow The long five year wait for this book felt like ten years The last book in the series left us with a bit of a cliff hanger and so fans have been eagerly anticipating resolution The author used some real life unsolved crimes as a basis for the story I could almost feel the sticky Mississippi humidity hear the soft southern drawl and see the charming town of Natchez and I could absolutely picture the extreme tension of the 1960's when race relations were at the center of everyone's thoughts and terrible terrible crimes were committed by closed minded power hungry hate filled people The very idea that a black person and a white person could be in love would most assuredly lead to someone's death To have that type of a relationship was the riskiest thing you could do That didn't stop some from going ahead and acting on those feelings Some would have to lose than others and some would pay the ultimate price These forbidden relationships at the center of all the crimes examined in this novelWhile not everything was wrapped up in a neat little bow there are installments coming into this series and thankfully there was no big cliffhanger I personally have held my breath hoping against hope that Penn will realize he deserves better than the overly ambitions my career trumps family Caitlyn But we won't get any pat answers here on that front but I do have a sinking feeling he hasn't seen the back from her yet As to certain other issues regarding Tom's past and what could have been we are left to draw our own conclusions For sure you will not think of the great Tom Cage in the same way again He is human after all and of course so is the great Penn Cage How all this will play out in the future will certainly be interesting I can't waitOn a personal note Greg it is so good to have you back I have really missed you 5 stars
