Passion and racial tension seethe through the pages of this multi-layered thriller set in the South. New York Times best-selling author Greg Iles creates a compelling tale of a young lawyer determined to find justice—no matter what the cost. Houston prosecutor Penn Cage returns to his childhood home in Natchez, Mississippi after his wife's death. Instead of finding peace, he discovers his father beaten down by a ruthless blackmailer and himself the target of a nameless killer. As Penn struggles to save his family, he uncovers shocking information about a decades-old murder steeped in racism. In a desperate attempt to right a terrible wrong, Penn must face off with formidable foes: the FBI, a powerful judge, and a town filled with people who play "the quiet game." Tom Stechschulte's dramatic performance captures all the intrigue, danger, and breathtaking action.
