“I never meant to kill my brother. I never set out to hate my father. I never dreamed I would bury my own son . . .”
When his father falls gravely ill, successful D.C. journalist Marshall McEwan reluctantly returns to his childhood home. Bienville, Mississippi, is no longer the city Marshall remembers. His family’s newspaper is failing, and Jet Talal, the love of his youth, has married a man with ties to the Bienville Poker Club, which has offered economic salvation to the town by luring a billion-dollar Chinese paper mill. But then two murders rock Bienville to its core, threatening far more than the city’s economic future.
Joining forces with his former lover, Marshall begins digging for the truth. But he and Jet discover that Mississippi soil 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.
