Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles returns with this highly anticipated first novel in five years and auspicious start of a trilogy featuring Penn Cage.

As a former prosecutor and writer living in the small town of Natchez, Mississippi, where he grew up, Penn Cage has always been a fighter. He's never been one to see injustice and do nothing about it. He learned it from his father, Tom Cage, a beloved family doctor who spent decades taking care of folks no matter their origin or circumstance, rich or poor, black or white. Penn has always thought of his dad as a kind of Atticus Finch-like character, a man who had guts and backbone, even when his friends and neighbors didn't. And the old adage couldn't be more true: "Like father, like son". Or is it?

In a place like rural Mississippi, when the issues are race and crime, the pressures are formidable and the risks no less life-threatening. So when Tom Cage finds himself on the verge of being charged with murder-of his long-time nurse assistant and friend Viola Turner-Penn knows he must find the truth and rescue his father. The catch: his father believes client privilege forbids him from talking about the night in question and so refuses to say anything to help himself or Penn.

Penn soon learns that Viola's death is only the tip of the iceberg-for it brings into question several horrific, unsolved murders in the 1960s, one of which was her brother's. And it points to a group of secretive KKK members who call themselves the "Double Eagles", a crew that has cut a swath across the area for decades and includes Brody Royal, one of the wealthiest and most ruthless businessmen in the state, and brothers Frank and Snake Knox, men who have been born and bred to always get their way. Until now.

Rich in Southern atmosphere and electrifying plot turns, Natchez Burning is a high-water mark for Greg Iles. It marks the return of a genuine American master of suspense and a sensational new page in a brilliant career.
