BONE TREE by Greg Iles - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Greg Iles.
Greg Iles continues the electrifying story begun in his smash New York Times bestseller Natchez Burning
in this highly anticipated second installment of an epic trilogy of
blood and race, family and justice, featuring Southern lawyer Penn Cage.
Former prosecutor Penn Cage and
his fiancée, reporter and publisher Caitlin Masters, have barely escaped
with their lives after being attacked by wealthy businessman Brody
Royal and his Double Eagles, a KKK sect with ties to some of
Mississippi’s most powerful men. But the real danger has only begun as
FBI Special Agent John Kaiser warns Penn that Brody wasn’t the true
leader of the Double Eagles. The puppeteer who actually controls the
terrorist group is a man far more fearsome: the chief of the state
police’s Criminal Investigations Bureau, Forrest Knox.
The only way Penn can save his
father, Dr. Tom Cage—who is fleeing a murder charge as well as corrupt
cops bent on killing him—is either to make a devil’s bargain with Knox
or destroy him. While Penn desperately pursues both options, Caitlin
uncovers the real story behind a series of unsolved civil rights murders
that may hold the key to the Double Eagles’ downfall. The trail leads
her deep into the past, into the black backwaters of the Mississippi
River, to a secret killing ground used by slave owners and the Klan for
over two hundred years . . . a place of terrifying evil known only as
“the bone tree.”
The Bone Tree is an
explosive, action-packed thriller full of twisting intrigue and deadly
secrets, a tale that explores the conflicts and casualties that result
when the darkest truths of American history come to light. It puts us
inside the skin of a noble man who has always fought for justice—now
finally pushed beyond his limits.
Just how far will Penn Cage, the hero we thought we knew, go to protect those he loves?
