Praise for NATCHEZ BURNING: 'Extraordinarily entertaining and fiendishly suspenseful. I defy you to start it and find a way to put it down ...This is an amazing work of popular fiction' STEPHEN KING 'I don't know how Iles did it, but every single one of the 700+ pages of NATCHEZ BURNING is a cliffhanger that will keep you devouring just one more chapter before you put it down to eat, work, or go to bed. A mystery rooted in the real-life racial divides of the Deep South, this ambitious, unique novel is the perfect marriage of a history lesson and a thriller. Greg? You owe me some sleep!' JODI PICOULT
Paperback -The electrifying second installment of the NATCHEZ BURNING trilogy by No.1 New York Times bestseller, Greg Iles Picking up where NATCHEZ BURNING left off, THE BONE TREE features former prosecutor Penn Cage, and is set in Natchez, Mississippi, where the past is never truly past, and long-buried secrets turn lethal when exposed to the light of day.
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.
Former prosecutor Penn Cage faces the crisis of a lifetime. His family has been torn apart and his father made a fugitive after being accused of murdering an African-American nurse. Now, Penn has unwittingly started a war with the Double Eagles, a violent faction of the KKK who know more about Dr. Tom Cage than Penn ever did. Tracking his father through Natchez and beyond, Penn is targeted by criminals and corrupt police whose power reaches the top levels of state government - people who will stop at nothing to prevent the truth from coming out. To clear Tom's name, Penn must either make a deal with the devil or destroy him. But there are others pursuing a different mission - one which will lead them to the 'Bone Tree', a legendary killing site that conceals far more than the remains of the dead.
