Marshall McEwan, one of the most successful journalists in Washington, D.C., discovers that his father is terminally ill, and 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. Jet Turner, the love of his youth, has married into the family of one of a dozen powerful patriarchs who rule the town through the exclusive Bienville Poker Club. The Poker Club has offered economic salvation to this community 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, he and Jet soon discover that the soil of Mississippi is a minefield where explosive secrets can be far more destructive than injustice. 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.
