I would like to add my thanks to the doctors who saved Greg's life, as he did in his afterword. A long wait for this book, but what a great book. Like riding on a freight train at full speed. Set in Natchez, Mississippi, where Penn Cage is now mayor and his fiancee, Caitlin Masters, is the publisher of the local paper, and his father Tom is a legendary, kind-hearted doctor to all, Tom is accused of killing a former black nurse that worked for him in the 1960s. Politics, race, greed, forbidden love, dark family secrets, the KKK and a more radical splinter group (the Double Eagles), the well-known assassinations of the 1960s, news reporting all play prominent roles in this very long, but very enjoyable read. Looking forward with excitement to the next book in this trilogy. ( )

adult fiction; mystery/suspense thriller with lawyers/politicians and dirty cops. Kinda like Grisham, but with way more pages, and with extra sadistic Klanners thrown in. Apparently earlier installments in the Penn Cage series are not so long, though. ( )

This is the first novel by Greg Iles I have read. It may also be the last. It's a monster paperback, at 867 pages, but at first this didn't bother me a bit. I was caught up in the multiple story lines, past and present, as Iles took us back to the 1960s and several unsolved murders or disappearances of black men in Natchez, then forward to the early 21st century where the consequences of those crimes are still being felt. It was gripping for well over 600 pages, even if I did get a bit tired of the main character and his fiance having the same misunderstanding over and over. Iles certainly knows how to build suspense. The trouble is, he doesn't know when to stop. Too many people putting themselves and others in jeopardy by being stupid, reckless or misguided. Too many near-rescues gone wrong making things worse. Too much repetition of theories and speculations. And way too much sadistic behavior on the part of the bad guys. Maybe if Iles's editors had chopped some of this excess cabbage, he wouldn't have had to chew it twice. To top it all off, we never really get the answers to a couple big questions that seemed to be the point, and there are loose threads all over the place. I know this is part one of a trilogy, but the ending isn't a cliffhanger, exactly. It feels like the author just decided not to bother to clear up those few pesky problems. I may have to live with the not knowing because I don't much want to be treated this way again. ( )

Excellent book. I'm excited that it's a trilogy, although this was such an all encompassing book, I have no idea where the others will go from here, but I'll definitely read them. This is my first book by Greg Iles and won't be my last. ( )

These books just get more lengthy and the plots get more convoluted. And the conversations occur in great detail. Time goes slowly in the book, what I feel should be a week is only a day or two.
I like the characters, but I would prefer to only read Penn Cage's thoughts and have him tell the story without all the sidetracks to let the readers know what the nefarious plots the evil characters are up to. ( )
