Publisher's Summary

Raised in the historic southern splendor of Natchez, Mississippi, Penn Cage learned all he knows of honor and duty from his father, Dr. Tom Cage. But now the beloved family doctor has been accused of murdering Viola Turner, the African-American nurse with whom he worked in the dark days of the 1960s. Penn is determined to save his father, but Tom, stubbornly invoking doctor-patient privilege, refuses to even speak in his own defense.
Penn's quest for the truth sends him deep into his father's past, where a sexually charged secret lies waiting to tear their family apart. This long-buried sin is only a single thread in a conspiracy of greed and murder involving the vicious Double Eagles, an offshoot of the KKK. Penn is forced to confront the most wrenching dilemma of his life: Does a man of honor choose his father or the truth?
Drenched in southern atmosphere, Natchez Burning marks the brilliant return of a genuine American master of suspense. Tense, disturbing, and filled with electrifying plot twists, this novel commences the most explosive and ambitious story Greg Iles has ever written.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator! I am having such a hard time listening to this. I think I would be better off reading it. Story is great but I am having such a hard time enjoying this because of the narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This is the worst narrator I have ever listened to. After listening to all of the previous with Dick Hill who is wonderful, I am so disappointed. His inflections and candece is just wrong and no southern accent.

Any additional comments?

Who picks the narrator? They should be forced to listen to this!
