Greg Iles – Natchez Burning

Natchez Burning is the first of a trilogy from best selling author Greg Iles. Throughout the nearly eight hundred pages, he exposes the shocking truth about the violence surrounding the civil rights movement in Mississippi and Louisiana, a brutality not confined to lower class perpetrators.  Iles explains why he chose to tell this story as graphically as he does, since it is based on true crimes he discovered while growing up in the South. A true masterwork, it is hard to put down, despite its length.
