Cemetary Road

A Novel

Greg Iles, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Mississippi Blood, the final book in the Natchez Burning trilogy, returns with an electrifying tale of friendship, betrayal, and devastating secrets.

“I never meant to kill my brother. I never set out to hate my father. I never dreamed I would bury my own son. Nor could I have imagined that I would betray the childhood friend who saved my life, or win a Pulitzer Prize for telling a lie. All these things I have done, yet most people I know would call me an honorable man. I wouldn’t go that far . . .”

So begins Cemetery Road, Greg Iles’s most captivating and propulsive novel to date. Marshall McEwan is one of the most successful journalists in Washington, D.C. But as a chaotic presidential administration lifts him from print fame to television stardom, Marshall discovers that his father is terminally ill, and he must return to his childhood home—a place he vowed he would never go back to.

Bienville, Mississippi, is no longer the city Marshall remembers. His family’s 150-year-old newspaper is failing, and Jet Talal, the love of his youth, has married into the family of Max Matheson, one of a dozen powerful patriarchs who rule the town through the exclusive Bienville Poker Club. To Marshall’s surprise, the Poker Club has offered economic salvation to this community on the brink of extinction, in the form of a billion-dollar Chinese paper mill. But on the verge of the deal’s consummation, two deaths rock Bienville to its core, threatening far more than the city’s economic future.

Joining forces with his former lover—whose husband stands to inherit a seat in the Poker Club—Marshall begins digging for the truth. But he and Jet soon discover that the soil of Mississippi is a minefield where explosive secrets can be far more destructive than injustice. By the time Marshall grasps the long-buried truth about his own history—and the woman he loves—he would give almost anything not to have to face it.

Cemetery Road is an unforgettable story of greed and desire, jealousy and murder, forgiveness and damnation—and it proves once again that Greg Iles is one of our modern masters of suspense.
