Greg Iles has earned outstanding critical praise and a legion of fans for his novels including The Quiet Game, Turning Angel, and Devil s Punchbowl. Iles has shown he has incredible range in his ability to craft exceptional suspense novels featuring compelling, multidimensional characterization. Now, in the literary publishing event of the summer, Iles presents his most powerful work to date with Natchez Burning, the auspicious first volume in a trilogy featuring southern mayor and former prosecutor Penn Cage.
