Find out more about The Bone Tree below. If you’d like to know the story behind the books, read a guest post from Greg here.

Former prosecutor Penn Cage faces the crisis of a lifetime. His family has been torn apart and his father made a fugitive after being accused of murdering an African-American nurse.

Now, Penn has unwittingly started a war with the Double Eagles, a violent faction of the KKK who know more about Dr. Tom Cage than Penn ever did.

Tracking his father through Natchez and beyond, Penn is targeted by criminals and corrupt police whose power reaches the top levels of state government – people who will stop at nothing to prevent the truth from coming out.

To clear Tom’s name, Penn must either make a deal with the devil or destroy him. But there are others pursuing a different mission – one which will lead them to the ‘Bone Tree’, a legendary killing site that conceals far more than the remains of the dead.

PRAISE FOR GREG ILES:

‘The thriller of the year, of the decade even’ The Times

‘Amazing. I defy you to put it down’ Stephen King

‘A scorching read’ John Grisham
