Member Reviewer norinrad10 put it succinctly: "Is there a more annoying protagonist then Penn Cage? I'd be hard pressed to name one." This book is easily 200 pages too long, the author apparently trying too hard to throw out tendrils attempting to be "twists". Honestly, unless you are absolutely hooked on the first two installments and just can't stand the thought of not reading the wrap-up, I'd advise you to spend your time reading something else. ( )

The last of the Natchez Burnong series, sees Peen Cage's father, Tom Cage, on trial for the murder of his former nurse. During the last forty years Dr. Tom Cage has made himself the most respected doctor around. As Penn seeks to unearth the truth of the horrible past of racial tensions and the devastating aftermath of the Double Eagles, a splinter group of the KKK, he finds his father's involvement an intregal part of the past. Great read! ( )

Is there a more annoying protagonist then Penn Cage? I'd be hard pressed to name one. This is the third part of Greg Iles Penn led civil rights era rooted trilogy. This episode is much more action packed then the two previous entries and that action is needed to cover up the holes in the plot.

Mississippi Blood finds Penn's father, doctor Tom Cage, standing trial for an alleged murder. An off shoot of the Klan does everything in their power to make sure that he is convicted. The historical aspects are interesting but in the end the book is doomed by its lack of congruencies. Character exist mainly as a vechicile for the author to make social commentary. They come to the forefront and then are summarily dismissed to a secondary role with no clear purpose. Plot lines are left dangling throughout the book.

This could have been a great book, instead it's a passable beach read. ( )

A tale of love, honor and revenge. A masterful story involving members of a family who are being targeted for destruction and how their past continues to haunt them.
