Overview

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Natchez Burning trilogy returns with an electrifying tale of friendship, betrayal, and shattering secrets that threaten to destroy a small Mississippi town.

When Marshall McEwan left his hometown at age eighteen, he vowed never to return. The trauma that drove him away ultimately spurred him to become one of the most successful journalists in Washington D.C. But just as the political chaos in the nation’s capital lifts him to new heights, Marshall is forced to return home in spite of his boyhood vow.

His father is dying, his mother is struggling to keep the family newspaper from failing, and the town is in the midst of an economic rebirth that might be built upon crimes that reach into the state capitol—and perhaps even to Washington. More disturbing still, Marshall’s high school sweetheart, Jet, has married into the family of Max Matheson, patriarch of one of the families that rule Bienville through a shadow organization called the Bienville Poker Club.

When archeologist Buck McKibben is murdered at a construction site, Bienville is thrown into chaos. The ensuing homicide investigation is soon derailed by a second crime that rocks the community to its core. Power broker Max Matheson’s wife has been shot dead in her own bed, and the only other person in it at the time was her husband, Max. Stranger still, Max demands that his daughter-on-law, Jet, defend him in court.

As a journalist, Marshall knows all too well how the corrosive power of money and politics can sabotage investigations. Without telling a soul, he joins forces with Jet, who has lived for fifteen years at the heart of Max Matheson’s family, and begins digging into both murders. With Jet walking the dangerous road of an inside informer, they soon uncover a web of criminal schemes that undergird the town’s recent success. But these crimes pale in comparison to the secret at the heart of the Matheson family. When those who have remained silent for years dare to speak to Marshall, pressure begins to build like water against a crumbling dam.

Marshall loses friends, family members, and finally even Jet, for no one in Bienville seems willing to endure the reckoning that the Poker Club has long deserved. And by the time Marshall grasps the long-buried truth, he would give almost anything not to have to face it.

A bit disappointed, as this was not Mr. Iles best. Far too much descriptive sex, far too much background on locations and companies. Perhaps his next book will be written in his usual style.

Oh boy. Anyone who thinks this book isn't riveting is crazy. I got the book two days ago, and can barely put it down. It has everything to make this story gripping and exciting. I love Greg Isles. I have read all his books and this one is equally as good at all the others. He is a consummate story teller. You can feel totally immersed in the South as he describes, in detail, not only the places his character inhabits, but learn a lot of things about all kinds of disparate items such as war, history and the South. Very interesting and worth reading.

I have been a Greg Iles fan since Spandau Phoenix. Therefore, I was so looking forward to his first outing since the Mississippi Burning Trilogy, especially since it takes place in Mr Iles beloved South. I was not disappointed. This was a great tale, and I was sucked in from page one. The ease with which Greg Iles writes makes it so easy to get lost and distracted, at least for a while, from all the craziness of every day life; which is what a good book is supposed to do. If you like a great story, unforgettable characters and a couple of twists, this book is for you.
