Natchez Burning | Greg Iles
102 posts | 77 read | 82 to read
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles comes the first novel in his Natchez Burning trilogywhich also includes The Bone Tree and the upcoming Mississippi Bloodan epic trilogy that interweaves crimes, lies, and secrets past and present in a mesmerizing thriller featuring Southern lawyer and former prosecutor Penn Cage. Raised in the southern splendor of Natchez, Mississippi, Penn Cage learned all he knows of duty from his father, Dr. Tom Cage. But now the beloved family doctor has been accused of murdering the African American nurse with whom he worked in the dark days of the 1960s. Once a crusading prosecutor, Penn is determined to save his father, but Tom, stubbornly invoking doctor-patient privilege, refuses even to speak in his own defense. Penn's quest for the truth sends him deep into his father's past, where a sexually charged secret lies. More chilling, this long-buried sin is only one thread in a conspiracy of greed and murder involving the vicious Double Eagles, an offshoot of the KKK controlled by some of the most powerful men in the state. Aided by a dedicated reporter privy to Natchez's oldest secrets and by his fiance, Caitlin Masters, Penn uncovers a trail of corruption and brutality that places his family squarely in the Double Eagles' crosshairs. With every step costing blood and faith, Penn is forced to confront the most wrenching dilemma of his life: Does a man of honor choose his father or the truth?

Thanks to these folks for today‘s prompt:

#GRATEFULREADS
@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks
@OriginalCyn620

Today‘s Prompt: OVER 500 PAGES

I haven‘t read this biggie, but it is on my shelf.

This book has 788 pages.

Have YOU read it?

OriginalCyn620 Haven‘t read it! Chunksters scare me! 1mo
Amiable Don‘t be afraid of chunksters! I haven‘t read this one, no. But so far this year I‘ve read more than 20 books that were over 500 pages! The biggest one was 1,100 pages —“Truman” by David McCullough. If a book is really good, don‘t you just want more of it? 🙂 1mo

SilversReviews @Amiable Thank you for the encouragement. 😍 1mo
Amiable @SilversReviews The easiest way to get through a chunkster is to take it in stages. I record my progress on Goodreads every 100 pages. 100 pages is basically nothing, right? So breaking a 1,000-page book down that way is just 10 sets of 100 pages. Piece of cake. 🙂 1mo
Reagan I only have Mississippi Blood and Natchez Burning left and then I am done the Penn Cage series ☹️ they are so intense, I read them very slowly 😂 1mo
SilversReviews @Amiable That is a terrific idea...thank you. ♥️ 1mo
SilversReviews @Reagan-reads Thanks for your comments. A friend has read all of them. (edited) 1mo

Finished this trilogy in 4 days. Wow!! Suspenseful till the end. I liked the characters, the going back in time to where it all begin, the mystery, the tension, the danger, I loved it all. Highly recommend.
Now I need to rest my eyes for a day or two. 👀 😂

Dear Karen,
Thanks so much for the book, Natchez Burning. I‘ve heard so many good things about it. I appreciate you sending it to me. ♥️

@Chili

Chili @kaye You are very welcome. Feel free to pass it along. It was already in the mail when I saw you received a copy. Great minds think alike. Maybe someone in the JB group would like it. 😁🎂 10mo
Kaye No worries. I can keep a copy in the car and one in the house , as it looks like it‘ll take me awhile to complete it. That way, it‘ll be available in both places. 😁. @chili (edited) 10mo

Kaye Oh, I‘m sorry, Misty ! I just now saw this post. Thanks very much for the info ! That helps. 11mo
Kaye That‘s where my question was! The Penn Cage section ? There are 4 books listed before Natchez Burning. Are they written like Lonesome Dove, though, because publication dates and dates they were written don‘t match in the order the story is told, from younger years to older years of the main characters. 11mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @kaye I haven‘t Lonesome Dove 🤭 but this is the order that they are in. I would definitely read the Natchez Burning trilogy in order. I didn‘t read the others in order although looking back I should have! 11mo
Kaye Ok, thank you 🌹 11mo

Part historical crime novel, part family drama, this 800 page behemoth jumps between the 1960‘s and just after hurricane Katrina. I found it remarkably engaging if emotionally taxing. Sometimes the brutality is raw in its description. I‘d read some criticism that it was unnecessary, but I disagree - Looking away from it to protect our delicate sensibilities is what allowed it to go on so long. Don‘t finish without the next book ready to start.

Wow. Just wow. The sweet ladies who live down the way brought me this book and the two that follow it for me to read. I‘m a third of the way through this and I‘m wondering 1) how have I not heard of this author? 2) why is he not a household name? & 3) how has this book not been optioned by a premium cable network for a stand alone series? I agree with Stephen King‘s quote on the cover: “I defy you to start it and find a way to put it down.” 😳

Monica5 Love this whole series 11mo

✨I can't help myself. I truly can't. Spare change? Library's for sale racks. Do I have room for these books? Of course not. Do I actually need any of them? Not really. Do I already even have one of them? Yup. 3rd Degree. Does any of that matter? Absolutely not because I will still buy whatever book looks good, which is most. ??
✨Every time I leave the library someone either says "Little light reading?" or "You'll be busy for awhile."?

MyBookLife Yup, You‘ll be busy for a while is something I get a lot too 😂 2y

2. Turning Angel (2005)
3. The Devil's Punchbowl (2008)

6. Mississippi Blood (2017).

📖😮....💪🤓#BigBooks #RiotGrams #Trilogy #LibrarianLife

At just under 800pgs, I'd say this qualifies for the #BigBooks prompt- Specially when u consider this being the 1st book of a trilogy in which each book is just as hefty!😫😓

But as you might be able to see (author blurb), Stephen King seems to think it's worth the arm excersise!💪😉

#framed Dr. Tom Cage is framed for the murder of Viola, an African American nurse that worked for him in the 60's... His son Penn, desperately tries to prove his innocence, but uncovers lots of family secrets! This trilogy is so good!!! I have to read the third!!

This is a frame my daughter found that she is going to decorate with pictures 😊

2017 #139 thriller audio I loved the writing but *spoiler alert* the story is not a happy one. By the end all I wanted was something positive or nice or not as horribly horrible. No luck. Superbly read and gut wretchingly awful. Can see why it is a must listen but I have to have something happy to cleanse my audio palate because holy crow that was beyond stressful.... and that was only book one!

Breakfast Litsy friends. I'm trying to understand the Natchez Burning trilogy 🤔. What is the first book in the trilogy ??
Meanwhile, I just bought The Quiet Game ( for 99 cents) on kindle. Is The Quiet Game the 1st in the trilogy? I think maybe not ! But it was a real bargain. I need some direction on getting the right order of Natchez Burning. Please & thankyou ❤️❤️

TrishB I think I've read them in the wrong order so far so I'm not much help sorry! 2y
Cathythoughts @TrishB no worries, thanks for getting back to me. What did you think of them ? 2y
TrishB Love them 💜 I think I've read 3 before 2, so have 2 to read and now there's a 4!! There are some uber fans on here so someone will let us know 😀 2y
Cathythoughts @TrishB brilliant, thank you 😉 2y

I love visiting the used bookstore at the beach and finding treasures. I'm only a few chapters in, but I'm digging it so far 👍🏼

The picture cut off Mississippi Blood, but it didn't look like as much of a #chunkster as the first two books. #SplashIntoSummerReads

Lola I have and ARC of Mississippi Blood... Iit's pretty chunky 😉 of course I haven't read the first two yet so it will be awhile until I get to it 😂 2y

Received these this morning ! Soooo... I'm burning may way through Natchez Burning ( pun intended) so I can get to these !! I've got a six day staycation starting today and I've got my comfy reading spot! No emails or phone calls! I'm in hiding for a few days!! 😁

Marla I always try to read a lot on my staycations then something comes up like removing the popcorn ceiling or cleaning out the basement. I hope to just read over the July 4 holiday. 3y
DenaM.Battistone @Marla I know what you mean! I'm trying really hard not to look at the flower beds that still need planted 😬. I love staycations but it's hard not to get distracted! I feel a little ( just a little ) guilty as their are other things I could/ should be doing! Balance I tell myself... it's all about balance 🙄 3y
Andrew65 Sounds pure bliss! Enjoy. 😊 3y
