As a prosecutor in Houston, Penn Cage sent killers to death row. But as mayor of his hometown—Natchez, Mississippi—Penn will face his most dangerous threat. Urged by old friends to try to restore this fading jewel of the Old South, Penn has ridden into office on a tide of support for change. But in its quest for new jobs and fresh money, Natchez has turned to casino gambling, and now five steamboats float on the river beside the old slave market, like props from Gone with the Wind.

But one boat isn’t like the others.

Rumor has it that the Magnolia Queen has found a way to pull the big players from Las Vegas to its Mississippi backwater. And with them—on sleek private jets that slip in and out of town like whispers in the night—come pro football players, rap stars, and international gamblers, all sharing an unquenchable taste for one thing: blood sport—and the dark vices that go with it. When a childhood friend of Penn’s who brings him evidence of these crimes is brutally murdered, he begins a quest to find the men responsible. But the local authorities have been corrupted by the money and power of his hidden enemy and, with his family’s lives at stake, Penn realizes his only allies are those bound to him by blood or honor.

Together they must defeat a killer who has an almost preternatural ability to anticipate—and counter—their every move. Ultimately, victory will depend on a bold stroke that will leave one of Penn’s allies dead—and Natchez changed forever.

    " I almost didn't continue reading this book because of the subject matter. For some reason, I can tolerate reading about awful things happening to people, but not at the same level to animals. Since this book is about prostitution, gambling, and dogfighting, I was sure that I would have trouble--particularly remembering that this author holds back very little in his descriptions. However, the illusions were restrained enough that I retained my indignation at the act, but was able to continue to read the story. I do like Greg Iles and with another book coming out with this character, I look forward to the next installment. "

    " Standard Gregg Iles. A little dark and a bit long but still a good read. "

    " Finally a different subject but still the suspense type book. Will read the next in the series. "
