Staff Reviews


I’ve been reading Greg Iles for many years, but I think it’s this one -Natchez Burning- that will make him a household name.

This novel is the first of a trilogy starring Iles’ character Penn Cage - former lawyer, former author, and present mayor of his hometown.

This first book finds Penn’s father, Tom Cage, accused of murder and unwilling to defend himself.  This opens up a can of old Klan murder worms and draws the reader into what was not Natchez’s finest hour.

Wow! Read it!

May 2014 Indie Next List


“Penn Cage is the mayor of Natchez, Mississippi, and life is pretty good for him, his fiancee, and his daughter, until a call from the district attorney sends his world reeling. His father, Tom, a respected and beloved family physician, is accused of murdering Violet Davis, who worked as his nurse during the turbulent 1960s. As Penn tries to save his father, he is forced to confront the brutal and violent past of his hometown during the fight for civil rights. With strong characters and a taut story line that spans 40 years, Iles delivers a blockbuster that will leave readers hungry for the next two installments in what will surely be an epic trilogy.”
