I can definitely see why the Penn Cage series is popular, this was a really strong start! Maybe a smidge longer than it needed to be, but overall a really fascinating case. Not so much a "whodunnit" but more of a "how do I prove it" revolving around a cold case buried in the deep south, stoking major racial tension at the mere mention of it, and corrupt law enforcement who would rather let sleeping dogs lie. TW: the n word, though not gratuitous

I'm having surgery this week (don't worry, nothing serious and it's something I want) but I'll only have my Kindle on hand so I've been downloading new Kindle Unlimited and library books in preparation. These, amongst others. I know I won't have time to read them all but I'm hoping the options will help depending on what mood I'm in 😆

Megabooks I hope everything goes smoothly! 9mo

I LOVE this series. I am reading it a little out of order, as I already read the Natchez Burning trilogy (which technically is books 4-6, but you don‘t need to read the first three to be able to follow it). Penn Cage is a great protagonist. I love how this series involves so much history, particularly the racial and social climate of the South in the 60‘s. There are so many unpredictable twists in these books. Highly recommend. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ericalambbrown I just started Natchez Burning. My neighbors brought them over for me to borrow. I really like his writing style so far. 13mo
avgeyer @Ericalambbrown enjoy!! I read them at the beginning of the year and I couldn‘t put them down. Amazing story. 13mo
Ericalambbrown @avgeyer I can‘t believe I‘d never heard of this writer before they brought the books to me. 13mo
avgeyer @Ericalambbrown I felt the same way! 13mo
RJHowe Same with me. Feel for Natchez Burning now working through his amazing backlist. His life/publishing history is a thriller in itself. 13mo

This is the first novel that Penn Cage is in. It‘s about a murder in Mississippi. A very good story that keeps the reader turning the pages.

Biscuits & Blues is a restaurant mention in The Quiet Game. It is a real place. I had to go eat there. I had crawfish and mushroom over a beignet . It may look a bit odd, but it was so tasty. It was on the starter portion of the menu. But, trust me, it was big enough for a whole lunch. #YumYumYum

UnidragonFrag Looks aren't everything! It sounds good - I'd try it! I think it would be cool to go to a place mentioned in a book :) 1y
LisaJo @UnidragonFrag I asked the waiter what he would recommend that I could not get somewhere else. And before he could answer, the customer sitting next to me, recommended this. He was spot in. Delicious!!! 1y
UnidragonFrag That's pretty cool! Hah! I love when folks jump in like that - and they're completely right 😀 1y

Very enjoyable mystery/thriller. I'm trying to start reading some crime series other than just John Sandford. I didn't like this one quite as much as those by Tana French, but it was still pretty good. I will definitely be reading the next one!

I'm afraid I'm bailing on this one. Maybe Natchez Burning will be better. It's not that bad , but so little time, so many books, I need to move on. I just wasn't feeling this one.

The Quiet Game: How you get a little reading time in even when it's 7:00 and the kids you are babysitting are already awake. It's quiet time and reading time for everyone until I get at least 2 cups of coffee in me!

Trying to read the whole Penn Cage series before the sixth (and final?) one drops in the spring.
