The #1 New York Times Bestseller GoodReads Choice Award semi finalist, Amazon Best Mysteries & Thrillers of 2017 selection The final installment in the epic Natchez Burning trilogy by Greg Iles "Natchez Burning is extraordinarily entertaining and fiendishly suspenseful. I defy you to start it and find a way to put it down; as long as it is, I wished it were longer. . . . This is an amazing work of popular fiction."    -- Stephen King "One of the longest, most successful sustained works of popular fiction in recent memory... Prepare to be surprised. Iles has always been an exceptional storyteller, and he has invested these volumes with an energy and sense of personal urgency that rarely, if ever, falter." --    Washington Post The endgame is at hand for Penn Cage, his family, and the enemies bent on destroying them in this revelatory volume in the epic trilogy set in modern-day Natchez, Mississippi--Greg Iles's epic tale of love and honor, hatred and revenge that explores how the sins of the past continue to haunt the present. Shattered by grief and dreaming of vengeance, Penn Cage sees his family and his world collapsing around him. The woman he loves is gone, his principles have been irrevocably compromised, and his father, once a paragon of the community that Penn leads as mayor, is about to be tried for the murder of a former lover. Most terrifying of all, Dr. Cage seems bent on self-destruction. Despite Penn's experience as a prosecutor in major murder trials, his father has frozen him out of the trial preparations--preferring to risk dying in prison to revealing the truth of the crime to his son. During forty years practicing medicine, Tom Cage made himself the most respected and beloved physician in Natchez, Mississippi. But this revered Southern figure has secrets known only to himself and a handful of others.  Among them, Tom has a second son, the product of an 1960s affair with his devoted African American nurse, Viola Turner.  It is Viola who has been murdered, and her bitter son--Penn's half-brother--who sets in motion the murder case against his father.  The resulting investigation exhumes dangerous ghosts from Mississippi's violent past. In some way that Penn cannot fathom, Viola Turner was a nexus point between his father and the Double Eagles, a savage splinter cell of the KKK. More troubling still, the long-buried secrets shared by Dr. Cage and the former Klansmen may hold the key to the most devastating assassinations of the 1960s. The surviving Double Eagles will stop at nothing to keep their past crimes buried, and with the help of some of the most influential men in the state, they seek to ensure that Dr. Cage either takes the fall for them, or takes his secrets to an early grave.  Unable to trust anyone around him--not even his own mother--Penn joins forces with Serenity Butler, a famous young black author who has come to Natchez to write about his father's case. Together, Penn and Serenity battle to crack the Double Eagles and discover the secret history of the Cage family and the South itself, a desperate move that risks the only thing they have left to gamble: their lives. Mississippi Blood is the enthralling conclusion to a breathtaking trilogy seven years in the making--one that has kept readers on the edge of their seats. With piercing insight, narrative prowess, and a masterful ability to blend history and imagination, Greg Iles illuminates the brutal history of the American South in a highly atmospheric and suspenseful novel that delivers the shocking resolution his fans have eagerly awaited. … (mer)

I have finished this series. The first three books were easy to read.... the last three, not so much. I enjoyed the final one the most. ( )

Quite a good yarn loses itself with a bit of detail that's unnecessary Iwould recommend it ( )

„Die Sünden von Natchez“ ist das Finale der Natzchez-Trilogie. Ich habe die Vorgängerbände „Natchez Burning“ und „Die Toten von Natchez“ leider nicht gelesen, so dass mir doch einiges an Voraussetzungen fehlte.
Dr. Tom Cage wartet auf seinen Prozess nachdem er sich gestellt hat. Er soll seine einstige Geliebte Viola Turner ermordet haben. Penn Cage, der Bürgermeister von Natchez, versucht Licht in die Angelegenheit zu bringen. Was ist in der Mordnacht wirklich geschehen? Der Doppeladler, eine Gruppe rassistischer Weißer, hat ein Interesse daran, dass Tom Cage das Gefängnis nicht überlebt.
Es ist eine bedrückende Geschichte, die im Süden der USA spielt, wo Diskriminierung und Rassenhass allgegenwärtig sind und der Ku-Klux-Klan vor Mord und Totschlag nicht zurückschreckt. Dabei ist es seitenmäßig ein gewichtiges Buch.
Ich mag Gerichtsromane sehr gerne und ganz besonders die Prozesse in Amerika sorgen für interessante Wortgefechte, denn die Geschworenen müssen überzeugt werden. Der Prozess ist interessant und spannend, zieht sich aber hin. Am Ende ging es dann ein wenig zu zügig.
Die Charaktere sind gut und authentisch beschrieben. Penn kämpft gegen einen mächtigen Gegner, der kein Pardon kennt. Es wird gefährlich für ihn und seine Familie, denn eine Tochter wird sogar bedroht. Das Verhalten seines Vaters und des Anwalts Quentin Avery ist etwas merkwürdig. Unterdessen versucht das FBI Snake Knox zu finden.
Es ist ein interessanter und spannender Roman. ( )

After the last book I was devastated - I really hated the way it ended. Book 3 picks up right where book 2 ends. Tom Cage's trial takes up the majority of this book and believe me you couldn't have seen a more nail-biting trial on any TV show.
Greg Iles knows how to ratchet up the suspense and danger and I began to wonder who really did kill Viola Turner. I thought I knew and then another suspect popped up.
I won't provide any spoiler here but suffice it to say that this book (as the others did) left me in tears at the end. But in the end I was satisfied with how it turned out. ( )

Finished in the wee hours of the morning, not simply for a lack of time. This exciting end to the Natchez Burning trilogy once started, can not be put down, nor should it be because frankly, you HAVE to know what's going to happen to do many characters beloved and hated before you can call yourself satisfied. I'm not gonna lie, there is much darkness in this book, just like the rest, but what makes that all the harder is it could have simply been plucked from history. It shows man in his "finest" moments, both real and perceived, and reminds us just how far most would go for those we hold dear. If you've not read the prior two, I highly suggest you do and then dive into this grand finale. ( )
