Publisher's Summary

As a prosecuting attorney Penn Cage sent hardened killers to death row. But it is as mayor of his hometown that he will face his most dangerous enemy.
In its quest for new jobs and fresh money, the town of Natchez has turned to gambling. Five fantastical steamboats float on the river, but one boat isn’t like the others. Rumour has it that the Magnolia Queen has found a way to pull in the big players. And with them comes an unquenchable taste for blood sport, and the dark vices that go with it.
When a childhood friend of Penn’s, who brings him evidence of the sickening crimes, is murdered, he begins a dangerous quest to find those responsible.

another fantastic listen

I have listened to all of the Greg Iles books narrated by the fabulous jeff Harding. Great story, draws you in from the beginning, and Mr Hardings narration is so masterful. I listened at EVERY oppportunity.
I love Greg Iles stories about the South, you get to learn a lot about the politics, habits , lifestyles and day to day experiences of people living there, and his novels are ALWAYS exciting, with a hook that draws you in and inevitably gets you hot under the collar for one rason or another.
HIGHLY recommended

Gamblers and Rogues

The town mayor is approached by an old school friend, to help prove the manager of the gambling boat is up to illegal misdoings. This was a tense and fast-paced listen, but I had to subtract a star as I've never felt I had to fast forward a book before, but the description of a pit bull fight was so distressing I had to. Worth a listen if you skip the fight, as Jeff Harding is a great narrator.
