About the Author

Greg Iles was born in 1960 in Germany, where his father ran the US Embassy medical clinic during the height of the Cold War. After graduating from the University of Mississippi in 1983, he performed for several years with the rock band Frankly Scarlet and is a member of the lit-rock group The Rock Bottom Remainders. His first novel, Spandau Phoenix, a thriller about Nazi war criminal Rudolf Hess, was published in 1993 and became a New York Times bestseller. Iles went on to write numerous bestselling novels including Third Degree, True Evil, Turning Angel, Blood Memory, The Footprints of God, the Natchez Burning trilogy, and 24 Hours (released by Sony Pictures as Trapped, with full screenwriting credit for Iles). He lives in Natchez, Mississippi.

Reviews

"The thriller of the year, of the decade even, is Natchez Burning... The first of a projected trilogy, Natchez Burning is Penn Cage's fourth outing. But you don't need to read its predecessors to be wholly consumed by this wonderful book. Buy, read, and marvel."--The Times (London)
"A whopping tale, filled with enough cliff-hanging crises for an old summer-long movie-serial. Yet there are still enough unresolved matters at the end of Natchez Burning for two already-promised sequels."--Wall Street Journal
"Every single page of Natchez Burning is a cliffhanger that will keep you devouring just one more chapter before you put it down."--Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of The Storyteller
"Natchez Burning is just flat-out terrific . . . its themes about race, violence, tradition, and the eternal smoldering anger of the South [bring] to mind Thomas Wolfe and William Faulkner . . . Greg Iles is back and truly better than ever."--Scott Turow, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"Natchez Burning is extraordinarily entertaining and fiendishly suspenseful. I defy you to start it and find a way to put it down . . . This is an amazing work of popular fiction."--Stephen King
"A searing tale of racial hatreds and redemption in the modern South, courtesy of Southern storyteller extraordinaire Iles. . . . A memorable, harrowing tale."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"An absorbing and electrifying tale that thriller fans will be sure to devour."--Library Journal (starred review)
"Much more than a thriller, Iles's deftly plotted fourth Penn Cage novel doesn't flag for a moment . . . This superlative novel's main strength comes from the lead's struggle to balance family and honor."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"It's been half a decade since Iles' last Penn Cage novel, but, oh boy, was it worth the wait! . . . This beautifully written novel represents some of the author's finest work, with sharper characterizations and a story of especially deep emotional resonance, and we eagerly await volume two."--Booklist (starred review)
"Natchez Burning excels as a contemporary thriller . . . utterly--and chillingly--believable. Epic."--Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, MS)
"Natchez Burning obliterates the artificial distinction between genre and literary fiction with passion, grace and considerable style. This is Greg Iles at his formidable best. It's good to have him back."--Washington Post
