The endgame is at hand for Penn Cage, his family, and the enemies bent on destroying them in this revelatory volume in the epic trilogy set in modern-day Natchez, Mississippi??Greg Iles's epic tale of love and honor, hatred and revenge that explores how the sins of the past continue to haunt the present.

Shattered by grief and dreaming of vengeance, Penn Cage sees his family and his world collapsing around him. The woman he loves is gone, his principles have been irrevocably compromised, and his father, once a paragon of the community that Penn leads as mayor, is about to be tried for the murder of a former lover. Most terrifying of all, Dr. Cage seems bent on self-destruction. Despite Penn's experience as a prosecutor in major murder trials, his father has frozen him out of the trial preparations??preferring to risk dying in prison to revealing the truth of the crime to his son.

During forty years practicing medicine, Tom Cage made himself the most respected and beloved physician in Natchez, Mississippi. But this revered Southern figure has secrets known only to himself and a handful of others. Among them, Tom has a second son, the product of an 1960s affair with his devoted African American nurse, Viola Turner. It is Viola who has been murdered, and her bitter son??Penn's half-brother??who sets in motion the murder case against his father. The resulting investigation exhumes dangerous ghosts from Mississippi's violent past. In some way that Penn cannot fathom, Viola Turner was a nexus point between his father and the Double Eagles, a savage splinter cell of the KKK. More troubling still, the long-buried secrets shared by Dr. Cage and the former Klansmen may hold the key to the most devastating assassinations of the 1960s. The surviving Double Eagles will stop at nothing to keep their past crimes buried, and with the help of some of the most influential men in the state, they seek to ensure that Dr. Cage either takes the fall for them, or takes his secrets to an early grave.

Tom Cage's murder trial sets a terrible clock in motion, and unless Penn can pierce the veil of the past and exonerate his father, his family will be destroyed. Unable to trust anyone around him??not even his own mother??Penn joins forces with Serenity Butler, a famous young black author who has come to Natchez to write about his father's case. Together, Penn and Serenity??a former soldier??battle to crack the Double Eagles and discover the secret history of the Cage family and the South itself, a desperate move that risks the only thing they have left to gamble: their lives.

Mississippi Blood is the enthralling conclusion to a breathtaking trilogy seven years in the making??one that has kept readers on the edge of their seats. With piercing insight, narrative prowess, and a masterful ability to blend history and imagination, New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles illuminates the brutal history of the American South in a highly atmospheric and suspenseful novel that delivers the shocking resolution his fans… (mais)

This was another really great book. I thought this was the third in a Trilogy, but looking at the Author info, it isn't, I guess. Nonetheless, I read Natchez Burning, The Bone Tree and just now Mississippi Blood as a Trilogy. I will now go back and read the first three of the Penn Cage series.
This book, like the other two is a long book, but it never reads like a long book.
I don't know how Greg Iles managed to touch on so much, managed to put us all right there with Penn and do it not once, but for all three books.
The long history of racism in the US is well known, but this Trilogy delves into it, showing it as the cancer it is, and how all of us have been tainted. While the members of the Double Eagles show racism at its very worst, all of us must look in the mirror.
While racism is front and center, this book is so much more, believing in your family, your history, how things are connected, seeking the truth and righting wrongs. There is a lot of tension and action.
Great read. ( )

The conclusion of the Natchez Burning trilogy, plot twists and court room scenes dominate, while revelation reigns. Like any good thriller the final momentum is explosive. Throughout the trilogy Greg Isles delivers a journey that touches upon important issues, while a family theme remains consistent. In the final story, facing a murder trial Tom Cage's truth is finally revealed which puzzled his son Penn through the first two books. Adding last minute revelations revealed to Penn by his black half-brother Lincoln adds clarity where confusion had existed. Historically accurate, the racist element of these stories can be difficult to swallow, as is the behavior of the former Klan members, their ruthless, inhumane behavior in particular. Isles is a talented author and this trilogy engages at deep levels, raises questions and keeps our hearts racing right to the end. ( )

DO NOT read this book if you have not read the other two in this trilogy. Actually, you need to read the other 5(in total) to get the complete picture. Great writing. Nothing feels trite or forced. A delight to listen to (28hrs) ( )
  Sunandsand | Apr 30, 2022 |
Excellent final installment of the Natchez Burning Trilogy! I could hardly stop listening even though the audio edition was 28 hours long! All the characters whom the reader has gotten to know are in it. The plot is fast-paced and full of twists. Interesting alliances, difficult choices and cross-hatched loyalties enhance the story. Enjoy! ( )
