Natchez Burning Á N deep into the past into the heart of a conspiracy of greed and murder involving the Double Eagles a vicious KKK crew headed by one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the state Now Penn must follow a bloody trail that stretches back forty years to one undeniable fact no one black or white young or old brave or not is ever truly saf ☆☆☆☆☆ “não” “nee” “neit” “nein” “no Oh I’m sorry Am I being repetitive? Does that bug you? You might not want to read this for that and numerous other reasonsA GR 2014 nominee for Mystery Thriller Described as an intelligent thriller which is probably why I added it to my tbr and why I had to wait a l o n g time for my turn on Overdrive What I don’t know and cannot understand is why I finished the 850 pages Admittedly I was liking the first 400 when the plane started losing power and thrust with the inevitable outcome Everybody’s dead I mean what was the point?”Exactly Caitlin what was it exactly? Except you and Penn don’t die because that would be like killing off Tom Cruise in the Mission Impossible series Most of the others are tortured and mutilated then murdered by flaying crucifixion burning etc over and over and over again Pay attention to the title And the reader’s reward for this? A plot that does not resolve It’s #1 of a trilogy and the main mysteries are all left hanging I felt like hanging myself after finishing this I need a book antidote I need to create a new shelf Total Waste Of My Time ePub ↠ Natchez Burning õ Greg Iles

Greg Iles õ Natchez Burning mobi Tchez Mississippi Penn Cage learned everything he knows about honor and duty from his father Tom Cage But now the beloved family doctor is accused of murdering Viola Turner the beautiful nurse with whom he worked in the early 1960s A fighter who has always stood for justice Penn is determined to save his fatherThe uest for answers sends Pen At than 800 pages Natchez Burning is a big book which tells a big story My prediction is it will be a big bestseller tooMy sincere thanks to William Morrow for allowing me to read Natchez Burning prior to its April 2014 publication I don't like to know too much about a book going in Sometimes reading a publisher synopsis or pre publication reviews can be helpful but often they over reveal I didn't know going in that Natchez Burning was planned as a trilogy I didn't even know that there are already three Penn Cage novels I didn't realize that during the writing of Natchez Burning that Iles lost his father the inspiration of the character of Dr Tom Cage I didn't realize Iles while writing this book suffered a life changing auto accident that left him in a medical induced coma and that he eventually lost part of his leg What I did know was that Natchez Burning promised to explore just how well we know our parents seeing them with a child's eyes where they can do no wrong and then again as an adult where flaws and secrets surface In flashbacks over 40 years we learn that Dr Cage once had a beautiful black nurse Viola who due to some horrific events flees to Chicago Present day finds Dr Cage being accused of murdering her when she returns to Natchez dying from cancerPenn a lawyer now the mayor of Natchez believes in his father's innocence feeling the murder is assisted suicide and cannot understand why his dad won't defend himself Doubt enters The uest for the truth sends Penn searching for answers back to the turbulent years of the civil rights movement The plot weaves a story of conspiracy involving 5 K's John Kennedy Martin Luther King Robert Kennedy an offshoot of the Ku Klux Klan called The Double Eagles and lastly Katrina To his credit Iles makes this work The characters jump off the pages Some of my favorites include Penn main narrator as he tries to figure out just who his father really is He contemplates that it might be better not to know that it would be merciful to escape the conseuences of acts committed long ago But once he starts to probe ignorance is wishful thinking For once the stone hits the surface of the pond the ripples never really stop The waves diminish and all seems to to return to its previous state but that's an illusionThere are so many other important characters Albert Norris the black owner of a music shop who makes money on the side by renting out his back room for cohabitation of the races The music shop and the piano lessons that he and his daughter teach are the best thing that ever happens for many of Natchez youth both black and white Henry a reporter who dedicates his life to finding the bodies and unearthing the deeds long buried by the Double Eagles A Texas Ranger Penny’s girlfriend newspaper publisher Caitlin Masters and other outstanding characters had me cheering for them to win as well as some dirty law politicians mobsters powerful men the scum of the earth that would not be missed at all Natchez Burning is not for the weak stomached It is brutally violent and often depressing It brings up history that can't be buried and reminds us of what has changed and what hasn't and how I can never really put myself in a black person's skin A character uotes There's a secret history here You can say that again Natchez Burning is a fast paced action packed heck of a good read one that proves this uote used to open Part Two Truth is rarely pure and never simple Oscar WildeIn an afterword Iles explains that while this is fiction many of the background cases were taken from unsolved race murders in Concordia Parish Louisiana and southwest Mississippi in the 60's He cites Stanley Nelson of the Concordia Sentinel who has been working to solve cases such as these for years Civil Rights Cold Case ProjectDo I need to go back and read the first three Penn Cage novels? Not necessarily Natchez Burning can stand alone I am certain there will be those that think Natchez could have been tightened up and that it's a tad over the top but I sat on the edge of my seat throughout and didn't get bored There are uestions left dangling I might be satisfied to draw my own conclusions Will I read the second in the trilogy? I'd probably be lying if I said no
