Natchez Burning

Greg Iles

In this first suspenseful installment in a trilogy set in the rural hamlet of Natchez, Mississippi, Iles brings back former lawyer-turned-town mayor, Penn Cage. When his father, Dr. Tom Cage, is accused of murdering Violet Turner, the beautiful nurse he worked with in the early 1960’s, his father refuses to discuss the case. Penn must dig into the past to uncover the long-buried truth about his community and his family. “It’s been a half decade since Iles’ last Penn Cage novel (The Devil’s Punchbowl, 2009), but, oh boy, it was worth the wait!” (Booklist Reviews)
