Greg Iles: The Bone Tree

Following Greg Iles best-selling and terrific “Natchez Burning”, “The Bone Tree” is now in stock at Fiction Addiction .


The highly anticipated second installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles’ epic trilogy featuring Penn Cage.
Following the dramatic conclusion of Natchez Burning, The Bone Tree opens with former prosecutor Penn Cage and his fiancée, reporter and publisher Caitlin Masters, dealing with the aftermath of their near death at the hands of Brody Royal, the leader of the Double Eagles, a vicious sect of the KKK controlled by some of the most powerful men in the state of Mississippi. But when FBI Special Agent John Kaiser arrives at the scene, he tells Penn that Brody was no longer in charge, that the real power of the organization now lies in the hands of a man much more fearsome: Forrest Knox.

Despite Kaiser’s warnings, Penn decides to wage all-out war against Knox in an attempt to save his father, Tom Cage, who is now on the run. Meanwhile, Caitlin uncovers more dark truths behind a series of unsolved civil rights murders and follows a lead deep into the swamp to the KKK’s secret burial ground. A place used for over two hundred years, where the bodies are never found, known only as ‘the bone tree’.

This second novel is the most explosive, action-packed of the trilogy, and will take us to the serious conflicts and casualties that result when the darkest truths come to light-and readers will be shocked to see just how far Penn Cage, the hero we thought we knew, will be willing to go for those he loves.
