This is a weekly event that highlights a book that we can't wait to be published. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
My choice for this week is a book that I am truly on pins and needles about reading. It's the second book in a trilogy, written by Greg Iles. The first book of this trilogy, Natchez Burning, was one of my best books of 2014. I am not going to say too much about that book and I have only shared a bit from Amazon's description of The Bone Tree below. Too much is told by the publisher, at least for people who have not read the first book. April will be Greg Iles month for my mystery book group and we'll be discussing Natchez Burning. Can't wait!
My selection this week is:
by Greg Iles
Publication Date - April 21
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.
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?
Here's a video of Greg Iles talking about the first book in the trilogy, Natchez Burning. As a person who was born in and grew up in the American South of the 1960's, I find this an important book. Hope you might consider giving this trilogy a try.
