From #1 New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles comes the second novel in his Natchez Burning trilogy??which also includes Natchez Burning and the upcoming Mississippi Blood??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 tho… (mais)

Many authors have written novels dealing with wide spread corruption in southern politics. Some of the most notable, such as,John Dos Passos, Sinclair Lewis, and of course, William Faulkner are members of an elite group of such authors. This is the first novel I've read by Greg Iles, and after having done so, I'd argue he belongs amongst these elite writers. First of all by taking the corruption all the way to the top ! Right up to the assassination of J.F.K. and even giving Fidel Castro a cameo appearance. But what struck me most about Iles's writing was the depth and complexity of the characters. The book spanned more than 800 pages but covered only a time span of 4 days. Everyone of these scenes added to the suspense time and again. But of course even after 800 pages the reader is left with a cliff hanger. Looking forward to the sequel. ( )

What an excellent book. After I finished Natchez Burning, I wondered how Greg Iles could continue that story, and yet he did. This book was every bit as gripping as the first. Unlike the first book, at the ending of this one, it is clear that there is some unfinished business, which no doubt will be revealed in the last of this Trilogy.
Since there was a good amount of time since I read the first book, I was happy that the beginning of The Bone Tree caught me back up.
This is a fast paced and exciting book. ( )

Having read "Natchez Burning" the first book in the trilogy, the second is equal if not better. Greg Iles' ability to weave multiple plots with strategically placed back story while expanding the main characters is extraordinary. Building momentum gradually, he adds a piece of the missing Kennedy assassination puzzle, and historical insights that broaden the scope. Additionally, he paints a vivid picture of the inhumane behavior of former Klansman, most of them frightening. As with any best selling author, the plot twists and quickening pace as the climax nears are executed with precision, the emotional elements bringing tears. He leaves the reader hanging, eager for the third book, "Mississippi Blood" Highly recommended for those who enjoy a suspenseful thriller with historic elements. ( )

The second time around put me through the emotional wringer almost as much as the first.

A common complaint I've read in other reviews is that Iles focused too much on the Kennedy assassination. Maybe it was just a little too much but I kind of liked it, especially the second time around. The first time I just wanted to know what happened with Tom, so I was a bit impatient. (BTW, I wouldn't be surprised if Iles' theory isn't pretty close to what really happened, but of course we will never know.)

I made myself take a minute to write this as soon as I finished rather than immediately diving into Mississippi Blood. Anticipation is sweet, you know. ;-) ( )

WOW, What a story!! The title is odd but you will see why as you read the book. In fact if I didn't know it was fiction, I could believe there was a conspiracy of MASS portions! I was riveted as I couldn't stop reading ( )
