Penn Cage's father, Dr. Tom Cage, stands accused of murder, and each effort to defend him unearths new, shocking secrets, leaving Penn to question whether he ever really knew his father at all. At issue is the murder of Tom's former nurse, Viola Turner. The district attorney is quick to point the finger at Tom, citing his decades-old relationship with Viola. When Tom is taken into custody, Penn must explore the dangerous territory of Tom and Viola's shared history, set squarely in the most harrowing years of civil-rights-era Mississippi. What was the relationship between Tom, Viola, and the 'Double Eagle Club,' an ultraviolent group of hardened men who considered themselves smarter, tougher, and more elite than their peers in the FBI-infiltrated Ku Klux Klan? In Natchez, Mississippi, where the past is never truly past, long-buried secrets tend to turn lethal when exposed to the light of day. For Penn Cage, the cost of solving this case is no exception.… (mer)

Picking up where Natchez Burning ended, Greg Iles tackles one of the great mysteries for the baby boomer generation: who really killed JFK and why? The novel starts pretty slowly, and lacks the non-stop tension and violence of its predecessor. However, the racial issues are handled expertly, and there is double-dealing and triple dealing as the book progresses. The battles between local sheriffs, the Louisiana State Police, and the FBI are top notch. The Knox family, led by LSP's Forrest and Double Eagle's Snake, continues to play a central role in terrorizing everyone, especially Natchez mayor Penn Cage, his family and allies. Greg Iles continues to develop his compelling characters and the book is at its best when dealing with current manhunts, and power struggles, both current and historic. Dr. Tom Cage's eulogy for a dead reporter is outstanding. I wish there was a publication date for the last book in this trilogy. ( )

ohhh. my word. These books are killing me! They read so slow. The dialogue is tedious. The decisions the characters make are plain stupid. They rehash the same issues over and over in their conversations and in their actions. I have one more book to go. Not sure I'll make it all the way through, because I get fed up with the characters and their lame excuses...but I'm going to give it the old reader try. ( )

While the book was well written and tension built in a couple of situations, overall I found it too long and tedious. All the Kennedy assassination theory stuff got really boring and the "save my dad" storyline took f-o-r-ever! I had to force myself to finish this book and won't be reading the final one ( )

This is a follow-up to a book that I have not read. I was a little lost at the beginning because of references to past events so I think I would recommend reading Natchez Burning first and if you want to know what happens to the characters then read this one. It does all make sense by about page 200 but that may be too long for some.

Penn Cage is the Mayor of Natchez, a former Assistant District Attorney in Texas and the son of a revered Natchez doctor, Tom Cage. At the start of this book Tom Cage and his friend Walt Garrity are on the run after Dr. Cage was charged with the murder of his former nurse. Penn and his fiancee, Caitlin Masters, had gone to the home of Brody Royal to confront him about his misdeeds and how they impact Dr. Cage. Royal tortured Penn and Caitlin but was stopped by two men who then died together with Royal. Caitlin is the publisher of the local paper and she is on the track of the story of her life which investigates racism in the area involving Royal, a local gang called the Double Eagles and the Knox family headed by Forrest Knox who is second in command of the Louisiana State Police. The FBI, in the person of Agent John Kaiser, are interested in the same people but not just because of racist murders from long ago. Kaiser also suspects that some of these people know a lot more about the assassination of JFK and he is itching to get to the truth about that event. I'm not even going to try to summarize the events of the 800 pages of this book. Suffice it to say that there is a lot of violence and graft and corruption in this corner of the world and no-one comes out unscathed.

This is the second book of a trilogy. Would I read the third book? If it dropped into my hands I might but I don't think I'll go out and pursue it. ( )
