My first Greg Iles. Shame on me! Brilliantly plotted and written. Heartbreaking reminder of events of fifty years ago. Having to wait two years for the next two installments motivates me to stay healthy. Would hate to miss them. :)

I would have to give this book a mixed review. Yes, it is very long and somewhat repetitive and drawn out. I understand that there will be two more in a trilogy - maybe that is why I found the ending not particularly satisfying - paving the way for future books to resolve the loose ends. Some of the events from the early days are very unsettling but people need to be aware and this certainly does create an awareness of those times. The book is very well written and readers are drawn in almost from page one. I will read the next two.

Love, Love, Love Greg Iles, so glad he's finally writing again. Read this book in just a couple of days, then got my husband hooked too. Can't believe we have to wait till NEXT YEAR for the next installment!

So glad Greg Iles is writing again. Couldn't put the book down. Lots to think about re the issues of the 60's.

i almost gave up around page 280 , then kept going. too many characters and names. but i think it is getting better. on page 320 now.

An excellent book, a true thriller. I found it hard to put down. Iles has you wanting to get into the book and kill the bad guys.

A searing tale of racial hatreds and redemption in the modern South. I look forward to the continuing saga.

This Greg Iles effort is too long and too boring. I couldn't go beyond 300 pages.

“Nothing frightens me more than the faith in my daughter’s eyes. How many men deserve that kind of trust? One by one, the mentors I’ve most admired eventually revealed chinks in their armor, cracks in their façades, and tired feet of clay—or worse.”
