“A superb entertainment that is a work of power, distinction and high seriousness.” – Washington PostFrom #1 New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles come the widely acclaimed Natchez Burning trilogy, featuring Penn CageNatchez BurningRaised in Natchez, Mississippi, Penn Cage learned all he knows from his father, Dr. Tom Cage. But now Tom has been accused of murdering the Black nurse with whom he worked in the 1960s and Penn is determined to exonerate him. The quest for answers leads down a trail of corruption and brutality that places Penn’s family squarely in the crosshairs of the Double Eagles, a vicious offshoot of the KKK controlled by some of the state’s most powerful men. Penn ultimately must acknowledge that secrets from his father’s past have put the Cage family in great jeopardy. The Bone TreePenn Cage’s family is in crisis, has inadvertently started a war with an offshoot of the KKK called the Double Eagles, and his fiancee, journalist Caitlin Masters, is chasing the biggest—and most dangerous— story of her career. The only path out of this chaos is taking on the powerful men behind the Double Eagles, who are hiding a secret legacy darker than anything Penn can imagine. All roads lead to the Bone Tree, a legendary killing site that conceals far more than the remains of the forgotten—and where the shadow of personal tragedy threatens all Penn holds dearest. Mississippi BloodPenn Cage is shattered by grief and dreaming of vengeance. The woman he loves is gone, and his father Dr. Tom Cage is about to be tried for murder. When Tom stubbornly refuses to speak in his own defense, 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 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.

Author Bio

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.
