Cemetery Road
Cemetery Road | Greg Iles
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Natchez Burning trilogy returns with an electrifying tale of friendship, betrayal, and shattering secrets that threaten to destroy a small Mississippi town.When Marshall McEwan left his hometown at age eighteen, he vowed never to return. The trauma that drove him away ultimately spurred him to become one of the most successful journalists in Washington D.C. But just as the political chaos in the nation's capital lifts him to new heights, Marshall is forced to return home in spite of his boyhood vow. His father is dying, his mother is struggling to keep the family newspaper from failing, and the town is in the midst of an economic rebirth that might be built upon crimes that reach into the state capitol--and perhaps even to Washington. More disturbing still, Marshall's high school sweetheart, Jet, has married into the family of Max Matheson, patriarch of one of the families that rule Bienville through a shadow organization called the Bienville Poker Club. When archeologist Buck McKibben is murdered at a construction site, Bienville is thrown into chaos. The ensuing homicide investigation is soon derailed by a second crime that rocks the community to its core. Power broker Max Matheson's wife has been shot dead in her own bed, and the only other person in it at the time was her husband, Max. Stranger still, Max demands that his daughter-on-law, Jet, defend him in court.As a journalist, Marshall knows all too well how the corrosive power of money and politics can sabotage investigations. Without telling a soul, he joins forces with Jet, who has lived for fifteen years at the heart of Max Matheson's family, and begins digging into both murders. With Jet walking the dangerous road of an inside informer, they soon uncover a web of criminal schemes that undergird the town's recent success. But these crimes pale in comparison to the secret at the heart of the Matheson family. When those who have remained silent for years dare to speak to Marshall, pressure begins to build like water against a crumbling dam. Marshall loses friends, family members, and finally even Jet, for no one in Bienville seems willing to endure the reckoning that the Poker Club has long deserved. And by the time Marshall grasps the long-buried truth, he would give almost anything not to have to face it.

Just bailed on this one. Couldn‘t get into it and someone was waiting. Still tagged, though. I‘ve heard good things about it so think I‘ll give it a go another time.

Mehso-so

So-so is the perfect descriptor for my feelings about this book. It was intriguing enough to listen to for 24 hours, but I'm still left feeling not entirely enthused. I love thrillers but I guess this is outside of my niche. It might just be the slower pace and all the extra family drama weaved into it. Plus the whole affair situation rubbed me a bit wrong. Overall it was a enjoyable read, though.

TW: child death, racial slurs, rape, war combat

SquidgetsRoom Thanks for the heads up on the TWs. Much appreciated. 2w
annkuch13 @SquidgetsRoom Of course! Some of it is quite heavy. 2w
SquidgetsRoom Good to know! I may still read it, but will probably look to borrow it from the library as opposed to buying it first. 2w

Greg Iles writes the kind of novel I get completely lost in and never want to end. His writing style is superb. He offers so much detail about the characters as he builds a story woven of death, love, betrayal, hope, and sadness. He leaves no stone unturned for the reader. Just a longing for more. 5 beautiful, glorious 🌟

I love Greg Iles. His Penn Cage books, in particular the Natchez Burning trilogy, are some of my favorites. I was worried this standalone novel would be a letdown by comparison but I was so wrong. The twists and turns Iles is able to weave keep you engaged and unable to put this down. If you haven't checked out Greg Iles, what are you waiting for?! 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I went into this with high expectations that turned to “meh.” The story itself was interesting enough to keep me reading, but I just couldn‘t connect with any of the characters. That, unfortunately, made the book fall flat for me.

There is absolutely nothing this man could write that I wouldn‘t READ AND LOVE!!!!! 💜💜💜 This book is amazing, not only for the twists and turns, good vs. evil, and the southern feel to it. The emotional roller coaster is exhausting. There are a lot of characters,and at any point in the story, you go from love to hate or cheering to jeering in a nanosecond. There are a few solid despicable human beings, but the rest 🤔? Also 💜💜💜 the ending!!!

Robin3 I loved it too. 8mo

Kaye Misty, do you have his books in order ? It‘s sorta confusing , because I thought Natchez Burning was the first in that set, but then I saw it was 3rd ? I‘m mixed up. Would this writer be described as writing mystery, suspense, or just good fiction ? And he‘s from your neck of the woods, isn‘t he ? 11mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @kaye yes, he lives in Natchez! He‘s from Germany originally. I would say he writes mystery/suspense. Natchez Burning is first in a trilogy. The second book is The Bone Tree and then Mississippi Blood. All of his books are awesome!! He‘s a favorite of mine! 11mo
Kaye Misty, is he the author that was in a horrible accident , that Stephen King came to visit after his recovery ? I know there was an author that this happened with. I just can‘t remember which one. 11mo

Kaye Have you gotten to meet him at an event ? I‘m wondering if his accent is German or Mississippian ? And how did he choose to live there ? 11mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @kaye yes, he had a horrible accident and almost died in 2011. I have met him at a couple of book signings and he speaks like me! Lol He‘s very down to earth and super cool!! 11mo
Kaye Isn‘t that neat ? Did he move there as a child or do you know ? He had to be there a long time to get the accent down right. 11mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @kaye I think he was raised here in Mississippi! I would love to go to Natchez and see all of the settings of his books! 11mo
