GREG ILES

TUESDAY, MAY 20; 7 PM

(Line numbers beginning at 6 pm. Please show your books&co receipt for Natchez Burning to get a line number.)

GREG ILES will introduce his new thriller Natchez Burning. The book has been five years in the making, and readers will find that it has been worth the wait. In it, we follow Penn Cage, a former prosecutor and now mayor of Natchez, who realizes that it is up to him to save his father, who has been accused of murdering Viola Turner, the African-American nurse with whom he worked as a physician years ago. In trying to prove that his father is not guilty of the crime, he uncovers historical secrets that could reveal racial crimes that have been long buried. Is it possible that his father, during the dark days of racial tension in the 1960s, was involved in a conspiracy of greed and murder with the Double Beagles, a vicious sect of the KKK? Penn is faced with a chilling dilemma, “does a man of honor choose his father or justice?”
