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

Not for animal lovers

My first listen from this author and really enjoyed it despite the graphic cruelty. I was unsure about the narration to start with, I felt I wanted to speed him up a bit but when I got in to it I decided it went very well with the whole slow pace of the deep south where the story is set. Would highly recommend as a very good plot and story and very good value for money but not for the squeamish.
