    One thought on “Mississippi Blood”

    1. 5 Stars I d give it if I could Mississippi Blood It is over This is it The end How can that be I am at a loss, yet I am amazed and stunned Mississippi Blood and the entire Natchez Burning Trilogy is a masterpiece Mississippi Blood is Different There s Strength in it too Strength that s been beat but not Broke That s Mississippi Blood Like I said, this is it for Penn Cage There is nothing left And in his life he has endured a lot More than most He has lost almost everything His family is under a [...]

    2. I would give this ten stars if they were available I couldn t wait for the third installment of this masterfully written trilogy And now, I m sorry it s over Greg Iles is a magnificent story teller a genius with a pen A history lesson, a love story, betrayal, a murder mystery, harrowing action, spectacular courtroom drama, corruption, incredible sadness Everything one could ask for in a well written story Iles definitely saved the best for last Mississippi blood is definitely thicker than water. [...]

    3. AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH So good it makes me want to scream The tension has been building throughout the series and this is a perfect culmination Isles is a master at character development and describing action I love that Penn is not a noble character who always does the right lawful thing,he does what s necessary to protect his family One of the best thrillers I ve ever read

    4. I started reading the Penn Cage books in 2009 and really enjoyed the characters and the setting I felt awful when I read that Greg Iles sustained life threatening injuries in an automobile accident in 2011, but the accident changed his outlook toward his writing and this trilogy within the series was born.With this trilogy, Natchez Burning was a 5 star book for me, the second book was 3 stars, and this final third gets 4 stars I applaud the author for his honest portrayal of life in Mississippi, [...]

    5. Sometimes I catch myself about to write a review, wondering, and just who do you think you are, Miss Never Published Anything Substantial who thinks punctuation marks can be used like crayons or Legos Then I read the professional writers on writing and whole books about so you want to be a novelist that contradict each other well known phrases like kill all adjectives, and read Faulkner say it simply, then read Nabokov and so on with the controverting If I m really in an contemplative state, or [...]

    6. The sixth and final book in the Penn Cage trilogy I really think Greg Iles is among the best writers of Southern secrets However, I think the scope of this book was a bit too narrowly focused on the trial of Penn s father, highly respected Dr Tom Cage, and the legal strategies of his defense lawyer and prosecutor Shadrach Johnson In fact, I though the book was strongest away from the trial the visiting award winning writer, the new witness that can sink the Double Eagles, and the young reporter [...]

    7. I have read the entire series and felt nothing was gained by this book Almost 700 pages of rehashing the same thing the entire series and extremely repetitive how many times do you threaten to take the case from someone All telling and the action only served to kill off or harm people The ending was just unsatisfactory I even figured out who Tom was protecting early on Not a fan of Penn in this book as Caitlin s body is barely cold in the bag before he is in bed with someone.

    8. Penn Cage, Natchez, Mississippi mayor, continues the fight against the Double Eagles, a militant branch of the KKK These villains are the worst of the worst, vilest of the vile racists who have terrorized the area for decades Penn has surrounded himself with true friends who would die to protect his family and fight against these villains.Penn s father, who became one of the most respected doctors in Natchez, is on trial for the death of his nurse Viola He seems bent on self destruction His tria [...]

    9. The final chapter in Greg Iles s trilogy includes Natchez Burning, The Bone Tree and finally Mississippi Blood I was biting my nails waiting for this superb conclusion to one of the best series I have ever read It took over 8 years to finish and I am sure readers who have been following this have been wondering what would happen to their main characters This series is so special that it is being adapted for a TV series by Sony Pictures You really need to read the books in order to achieve the fu [...]

    10. To say it s been difficult for me to disengage from this book over the last several days would be putting it lightly Am I surprised by this No This is simply what happens when I pick up a book written by Greg Iles I ve read all the full length Penn Cage novels, but this one is the culmination of a three part story that began in Natchez Burning It s an extensive and intricate story that reaches back through generations into the civil rights era, exploring the hate, murder, and racial violence tha [...]

    11. I finished the conclusion to this epic trilogy a couple of days ago, and am just now sitting down to write this review Let me begin by saying that I found this to be the weakest book in the trilogy In part this is because I am a prosecutor, so I spend a lot of time in courtrooms, and as a result of that, courtroom drama is most emphatically not my jam And this is, first and foremost, a courtroom drama that returns to the question of Who killed Viola Turner I liked the fact that Iles used that ve [...]

    13. In anticipation of this, the long awaited final book in the Natchez Burning trilogy, I did a full, back to back reread of the whole Penn Cage series I am so glad I did, because there s at least a million and one details that I had forgotten Maybe I think all Greg Iles books are wonderful, but he has outdone himself with this trilogy within a series It is impossible for me to review just this one book, so I m going to talk about the trilogy as a whole It s a complex story that s part family saga [...]

    14. Friends, I am winded from the epic sprint that Greg Iles sent me on with this book I tell you, I was already eagerly awaiting this final installment in Penn Cage s family saga What I wasn t prepared for though, was how much Iles was going to throw at me all at once This book is a rapid fire rush to the finish the line It sweeps you off your feet, and all you can do is hang on for dear life as everything that you ve been waiting for unfolds in this maniacally beautiful fashion This book right her [...]

    15. The perfect ending to an awesome series I feel like I ve been reading the Penn Cage series forever This book is actually part of a trilogy and can be read on their own but I highly suggest you begin with The Quiet Game, which actually begins the series about Penn Cage and his family I must warn you though, they have extreme and graphic violence, but sadly, it s real life These things do happen Goodbye Penn I will definitely miss you.

    16. Wow, not sure what book others were reading but I found this to be a huge disappointment and waste of time jumped ahead about 8 hours worth and found the ending very disappointing

    17. I have been impatiently awaiting Mississippi Blood, the third book in Greg Iles epic Natchez Burning Trilogy The last few chapters of the middle book, The Bone Tree, left me gasping, crying and re reading to make sure what I thought happened, really happened It did and I ve been desperate to see where Iles would take the narrative For those of you who haven t read this series you need to here s a quick overview from the publisher ,.tale of love and honor, hatred and revenge that explores how the [...]

    18. Mississippi BurningWow What a truly amazing and great book I haven t enjoyed a series the way I did this one in quite a very long time Greg Iles has always been one of my favorite authors but he is definitely at the top of my list now What a talented writer This story has to be one of the best I ve ever read and I m so sorry to have it end.

    19. When I finished reading Greg Iles THE BONE TREE the second volume of his Natchez Burning trilogy it was clear the third installment would be equally suspenseful and the type of book that I would not want to put down I was not disappointed as MISSISSIPPI BLOOD drew me in, grabbed my attention, and would not release me Iles begins the conclusion of the trilogy by using old newspaper articles as a vehicle to review or present material from the first two books It is 2006, and Penn Cage, the mayor of [...]

    20. First thing s first If you haven t read any of the Penn Cage series, it s worth going back to the start, even before this trilogy, and reading The Quiet Game then working your way through I promise you won t regret it.Mississippi Blood is the concluding part of one of the most compelling trilogies I ve come across Penn Cage is the mayor of Natchez, Mississippi He returned to his hometown after a successful career as an attorney and an author, but not everyone was glad to see him come home He has [...]

    21. The conclusion of Greg Iles Natchez Burning trilogy is spectacular He weaves a tale of destruction and revenge at the hands of the Double Eagles and it has hit the Cage family relentlessly In order to survive they must stand strong and find the truth to what has happened not only in recent months, but also forty years ago Mississippi Blood is everything an exceptional southern novel should be In between the covers, there burns mystery, murder, deceit, racial tensions, adultery, violence, crimes [...]

    22. I enjoy reading this author My sister recommended him to me back in 2011, and I ve read quite a few of his books since He writes great characters into great stories This particular series is one of those series that get better and better with each new book My favorite part of this book was the courtroom scenes I kept thinking, Well done I could feel the tension This one was definitely worth the listen, as I did the audio, and I happen to love Scott Brick as a narrator So 4 stars.

    23. Stunning.Greg Iles is my favorite author, and the Penn Cage series is a wonderful ride Do yourself a favor and read this series starting with the Quiet Game History, courtroom drama, racial tensions of the South are captured brilliantly by Iles His storytelling skills come from his Mississippi roots 6 books and 3,500 pages later, I want But only Iles knows if that will happen Either way, it was worth it.I am going to have a major book hangover for the next couple of weeks.

    24. I m conflicted about the way the third installment and the sixth overall book in the Natchez Trilogy and Penn Cage series played out The trilogy is amazing, family honor, hidden history, heroic figures fighting the worst kind of hate Mississippi Blood is a satisfying conclusion to the series.Now where I have issues view spoiler Penn Cage is supposed to be this brilliant prosecutor that seems to be pretty smart throughout the six books of the series He makes dumb mistakes, having too much faith i [...]

    25. I ve read all Greg Iles books but this one was the best yet A lot has happened in the last few books but this one Penn has met several people who have tried to replace Caitlin as a reporter trying to follow her after her death If you like action and action and action you ve come to the right author I was very pleased with what Greg did with the story I like it so much I read it without stopping except to sleep I think the people who have read Greg will like this book.

    26. Like Mississippi Itself, It s ComplicatedI couldn t put it down and raced through the over 600 pages in little than a day We finally learn most of what had transpired in 1968 during the height the KKK action in Mississippi Like the state, the story is complicated There are no heroes and even the villains are partly a product of their time Ultimately the story is about familywhat makes a family, what breaks a family.

    27. The sheer enormity of this story gives me pause, the family and racial dynamics are complicated and the dramatic courtroom drama playing out throughout this final installment bring the tensions building for decades to a head The tragic loss of life, the cavalier and cruel actions of corrupt and evil people are sickening and sad Exposure rather than ignoring these often times painful revelations allow us the opportunity to consider how and how much should change I hope this might not be the last [...]

    28. Stunning Exciting Absolutely the book of the year for me Astounding I can t say enough about this book, or the Natchez Trilogy Start with Natchez Burning Then move to The Bone Tree, and finally, read this one Blew my mind A stellar read I can t stop thinking about it Well done, Mr Iles, well done Tension filled and non stop It s going to be hard to find a book that ll equal this one Wow

    29. Mississippi Blood is the final installment in the Natchez Burning trilogy by Greg Iles As always, Penn Cage and company do not disappoint It s hard to resist a locale that is a character itself and essential to the narrative There s murder, action, love, history, good guys and bad guys a plenty, and sometimes the line between good and bad is awful fuzzy Lots of interesting themes abound atonement, family, and guilt stood out for us.
