Mailbox Monday has returned home to Mailbox Monday’s site this year.
My Christmas money was burning a hole in my pocket so what else would I do but go to the bookstore 🙂 They were even having a buy 2 get 1 free special! And the JFK book was 60% off the hardcover copy! I love sales 🙂 So here’s what I came home with:
And I requested this one off of Edelweiss. I’m so looking forward to it, but it’s probably a good thing it doesn’t release until April since it’s 800 pages and will probably take me that long to get it all read! Ha!
Growing up in the rural Southern hamlet of Natchez, Mississippi, Penn Cage learned everything he knows about honor and duty from his father, Tom Cage. But now the beloved family doctor and pillar of the community is accused of murdering Viola Turner, the beautiful nurse with whom he worked in the dark days of the early 1960s. A fighter who has always stood for justice, Penn is determined to save his father, even though Tom, stubbornly evoking doctor-patient privilege, refuses to speak up in his own defense.
The quest for answers sends Penn deep into the past-into the heart of a conspiracy of greed and murder involving the Double Eagles, a vicious KKK crew headed by one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the state. With the aid of a local friend and reporter privy to some of Natchez’s deadliest secrets, Penn follows a bloody trail that stretches back forty years, to a shocking truth that will forever alter his perception of both his father and himself.
With everything on the line, including his own life, Penn must decide how far he will go to protect those he loves . . . and judge whether justice is worth the cost.
