NATCHEZ BURN­ING

The Day - Sound & Country - - FRONT PAGE -

Mayor Penn Cage of NatchezMis­sis­sippi is in­formed by the lo­cal district at­tor­ney that his physi­cian fa­ther is ac­cused of killing an el­derly pa­tient. The pa­tient, Vi­ola Turner, was once a beau­ti­ful young black nurse that had worked for his fa­ther in the tu­mul­tuous early 1960s. As Penn and a lo­cal re­porter dig for the truth, they dis­cover them­selves caught in a bloody trail leading back to heinous crimes com­mit­ted by an es­pe­cially vi­o­lent hate group, the Dou­ble Ea­gles. To make mat­ters worse, liv­ing de­scen­dants of the group hold po­si­tions of high stand­ing in the state po­lice, big busi­ness, and a pow­er­ful in­ter­na­tional drug car­tel. The most dan­ger­ous men will stop at noth­ing to guard their se­crets. A shock­ing thriller full of dark his­tor­i­cal truths, this novel has many scenes that will leave you read­ing past bed­time. The first vol­ume of a planned tril­ogy, NewYork Times Best­selling au­thor Greg Iles’ highly an­tic­i­pated first book in five years is sure to please. (fic­tion)
