Cemetery Road: A Novel
The Poker Club has run Bienville, Mississippi from behind the scenes since the Civil War; these are rich men making money from shady business arrangements. And now there’s a new deal that could bring back the economy and put Bienville on the map. Coming off the high of a Pulitzer Prize, Marshall McEwan has come home to Bienville to run the family newspaper and rekindle old relationships. With the suspicious death of a close friend, it doesn’t take long for Marshall to cross paths with the Poker Club. Digging up the truth might mean confronting the ghosts of his past while uncovering secrets that could ruin a one-billion-dollar partnership with a Chinese corporation that could save the town. However, Marshall’s family, as well as his lover, may also be in danger if he can’t find out who’s leaking information to the paper. As Marshall weighs justice with his conscience, the Poker Club is prepared to destroy anyone who threatens them.
Small town politics, Southern tradition, old money battling justice, morals, and modern economy are all on Greg Iles’s latest literary masterpiece. From the author of the best-selling “Natchez Burning Trilogy”, Cemetery Road will leave readers questioning their own ethics and values.
