Textul de pe ultima copertă

Greg Iles, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Mississippi Blood, the final book in the Natchez Burning trilogy, returns with an electrifying tale of friendship, betrayal, and devastating secrets.
“I never meant to kill my brother. I never set out to hate my father. I never dreamed I would bury my own son. Nor could I have imagined that I would betray the childhood friend who saved my life, or win a Pulitzer Prize for telling a lie. All these things I have done, yet most people I know would call me an honorable man. I wouldn’t go that far . . .”
So begins Cemetery Road, Greg Iles’s most captivating and propulsive novel to date. Marshall McEwan is one of the most successful journalists in Washington, D.C. But as a chaotic presidential administration lifts him from print fame to television stardom, Marshall discovers that his father is terminally ill, and he must return to his childhood home—a place he vowed he would never go back to.
Bienville, Mississippi, is no longer the city Marshall remembers. His family’s 150-year-old newspaper is failing, and Jet Talal, the love of his youth, has married into the family of Max Matheson, one of a dozen powerful patriarchs who rule the town through the exclusive Bienville Poker Club. To Marshall’s surprise, the Poker Club has offered economic salvation to this community on the brink of extinction, in the form of a billion-dollar Chinese paper mill. But on the verge of the deal’s consummation, two deaths rock Bienville to its core, threatening far more than the city’s economic future.
Joining forces with his former lover—whose husband stands to inherit a seat in the Poker Club—Marshall begins digging for the truth. But he and Jet soon discover that the soil of Mississippi is a minefield where explosive secrets can be far more destructive than injustice. By the time Marshall grasps the long-buried truth about his own history—and the woman he loves—he would give almost anything not to have to face it.
Cemetery Road is an unforgettable story of greed and desire, jealousy and murder, forgiveness and damnation—and it proves once again that Greg Iles is one of our modern masters of suspense.


“An ambitious stand-alone thriller that is both an absorbing crime story and an in-depth exploration of grief, betrayal and corruption… Iles’s latest calls to mind the late, great Southern novelist Pat Conroy. Like Conroy, Iles writes with passion, intensity and absolute commitment.”
“[A] page-turner [with] Iles’...intense scenes and dramatic emotions.”
“Iles… has made Mississippi his own in the same way that James Lee Burke has claimed Cajun country and Michael Connelly has remapped contemporary Los Angeles… They will be talking about this one for a quite awhile.”
“It is impossible to turn away. It’s like binge-watching your favorite TV drama, and you don’t dare take your eyes off the screen for fear of missing out on another revelation. Cemetery Road is full of them.”
“A sweeping tale of family dysfunction [and] sexually charged secrets.”
“With a paralyzing twist that will leave you speechless, Iles has created a completely original and unforgettable tale.”
“Another shocking Iles ending.”
“A fast-paced book, a thrill ride of an epic.”
“A thrilling, complicated path… [A] web of lies and intrigue… Give yourself some time [and] let yourself be absorbed.”
“[Iles is] one of my go-to storytellers, someone whose books are excellent consistently and without exception… [A] spectacular story… Iles’s pace and tone are uniquely his own, and he opens to readers a world of insight wrapped in excellent crime fiction stories that enriches our lives immeasurably.”
“Natchez Burning is extraordinarily entertaining and fiendishly suspenseful. I defy you to start it and find a way to put it down; as long as it is, I wished it were longer.... This is an amazing work of popular fiction.”
“Natchez Burning is possibly his best yet . . . This epic story is electrifying from beginning to end, un-put-downable, a gripping read.”
“The first in a trilogy whose themes of race relations, Southern tradition, and the corrupting nature of power are expertly woven throughout a powerful story . . . Natchez Burning is perhaps the best thriller to come along in years. Memorable, intricate, and expertly crafted.”
“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.”
“Iles carries it off with style, intelligence and passion...The Bone Tree’ is filled with menace, betrayal, [and] unexpected plot twists. . . [and] is a very American epic-in-progress that leaves us waiting, none too patiently, for whatever revelations are still to come.”
“Absolutely compelling.… A beautifully constructed story [and] some extremely fine writing.”
“Richly plotted…[and] the action-packed narrative moves swiftly to a surprising and moving conclusion.”
“It matches, or even outdoes, the first story in excitement and drama... Greg Iles has long been one of my favorite writers and he is certainly at his best with this series.”
“Extraordinary. . . . ‘Great Expectations’ transplanted to an American South laced with comparably gothic overtones. . . . The Bone Tree establishes Iles as this generation’s William Faulkner.”
“Best-selling author Iles superbly blends past and present in his swift and riveting story line.”
“The second installment of his hard-boiled Natchez trilogy finds Iles’ hero Penn Cage on even swampier, and surely deadlier, ground than before.”
“Prepare to be surprised. Iles has always been an exceptional storyteller, and he has invested these volumes with an energy and sense of personal urgency that rarely, if ever, falter.”
“A superb entertainment that is a work of power, distinction and high seriousness... also (a) prime example of what the thriller--and other forms of so-called ‘genre’ fiction--can accomplish when pushed beyond traditional limits.”
“[The books] are page-turning entertainments with an edge of history and a deep understanding of race relations in the American South. . . . Mississippi Blood is packed with compelling characters. . . . Harrowing and spellbinding.”
“This trilogy is destined to become a classic of literary crime fiction.”
“[The] terrific conclusion to his Natchez Burning trilogy is a sweeping story that remains intimate… Relentless pacing keeps the story churning… The trial scenes are among the most exciting ever written in the genre.”
“There is a graphic beauty to Iles’ writing. He uses measured words to express voluminous stories. . . . He is a masterful storyteller!”
“From his opening line, Iles draws you back into Penn Cage’s deep South in this phenomenal trilogy’s final novel (after Natchez Burning; The Bone Tree). [A] heart-racing, enthralling thriller.”
“Iles draws his characters so well, and brings off scenes so deftly.”
“A fabulous story. . . . Love, betrayal, murder, sadness, racism, adultery, hatred and revenge, with a bit of history thrown in. . . . The conclusion to a phenomenal trilogy.”
“In this dramatic conclusion to a stunning piece of work, Iles works suspense until the last second, making us question whether we’d be able to keep fighting if all the precious things in our lives were taken away.”
“The Natchez trilogy is a sprawling plunge into some of the worst crimes of the civil-rights era.”
“This magnificent saga concludes in breathtaking fashion. . . . Tender and gripping.”
“Almost nobody works in crime fiction at this level-or this many levels-of psychological, social, and civic sharpness, and with this clarity as well as richness of style. And maintains fiendish levels of suspense.”
“Operatic in its reach, this is still essentially a tough crime procedural, with courtroom drama that is far more blistering than the John Grisham variety.”
