Synopsis

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles comes the first novel in his Natchez Burning trilogy—which also includes The Bone Tree and the upcoming Mississippi Blood—an epic trilogy that interweaves crimes, lies, and secrets past and present in a mesmerizing thriller featuring Southern lawyer and former prosecutor Penn Cage.Raised in the southern splendor of Natchez, Mississippi, Penn Cage learned all he knows of duty from his father, Dr. Tom Cage. But now the beloved family doctor has been accused of murdering the African American nurse with whom he worked in the dark days of the 1960s. Once a crusading prosecutor, Penn is determined to save his father, but Tom, stubbornly invoking doctor-patient privilege, refuses even to speak in his own defense.Penn's quest for the truth sends him deep into his father's past, where a sexually charged secret lies. More chilling, this long-buried sin is only one thread in a conspiracy of greed and murder involving the vicious Double Eagles, an offshoot of the KKK controlled by some of the most powerful men in the state. Aided by a dedicated reporter privy to Natchez's oldest secrets and by his fiancée, Caitlin Masters, Penn uncovers a trail of corruption and brutality that places his family squarely in the Double Eagles' crosshairs.

About the Author

Author, Greg Iles, even though born in Germany, grew up in Natchez, Mississippi. His father was a physician who was the Supervisor of the U.S. Embassy Medical Clinic, in Stuttgart, Germany. Being raised in Natchez, most of his novels were set in that area.

Greg graduated from the University of Mississippi and was active in a band called, "Frankly Scarlett"........ assuming taken from the most famous line of Rhett Butler in the movie, "Gone With the Wind". The band was somewhat successful, but Iles decided not to tour because of time spent away from family. With more time post band, Greg began writing. Since he also wrote lyrics, it was a convenient transition from song writing to novels.

His first novel was, "Spandau Phoenix", a suspense thriller about Nazis, Rudolf Hess. Then came the screenplay, "24 Hours", that was rewritten and renamed, "Trapped". It was after that that Iles was seriously injured in an automobile accident. He lost a leg below the knee, and requiring a three-year recovery. In that time span he wrote a trilogy that was set in Natchez, which featured former prosecutor, Penn Cage.

Iles came full circle when he joined a band comprised of other authors......quite a who's who......Dave Barry, Ridley Pearson, Stephen King, Scott Turow, Amy Tan, MitchAlbom, Roy Blount, Jr., and James McBride. Iles lives in Natchez with his wife and three daughters.
