    I've spent a lot of time on airplanes this years, so I have been able to read several books.

    One author that I really enjoy is Greg Iles. I picked up his novel "Natchez Burning" and it is the best thing I have read in a long time. Natchez Burning— the first installment in an epic trilogy that
    interweaves crimes, lies, and secrets pasts, exploring the horrors of Jim Crow segregation and violence.

    I've read several Ilse's books over the years and is quite the writer/story teller. Pretty graphic in some cases, but always hard to put down.

    Hey Bill
    I agree, there was one book (Mortal Fear) that I almost couldn't finish. For the most part, however, I think Iles does a good job of not using violence for the sake of violence.

    I just tried to read his book titled The Bone Tree (copyright 2015).
    It was very difficult to follow what was going on and I found it boring.
    However, I will give a try with another book.

    Emily. It was on the "New Books" shelf at Bell and you can probably order it.

    Peg -
    I can imagine that was really confusing. Read "Natchez Burning" first. The "The Bone Tree" is the 2nd book of a 3 part series.

    I didn't know it was a series and when I finished "Natchez Burning", I was really mad! So much had happened right at the end of that book and there were so many questions left unanswered. Then I found "The Bone Tree".
