Inhaltsangabe: With his gift for crafting ?a keep-you engaged- to-the-very-last-page thriller? ( USA Today) at full throttle, Greg Iles brings back the unforgettable Penn Cage in this electrifying suspense masterpiece.
A new day has dawned . . . but the darkest evils live forever in the murky depths of a Southern town.
Penn Cage was elected mayor of Natchez, Mississippi?the hometown he returned to after the death of his wife?on a tide of support for change. Two years into his term, casino gambling has proved a sure bet for bringing new jobs and fresh money to this fading jewel of the Old South. But deep inside the Magnolia Queen, a fantastical repurposed steamboat, a depraved hidden world draws high-stakes players with money to burn on their unquenchable taste for blood sport and the dark vices that go with it. When an old high school friend hands him blood-chilling evidence, Penn alone must beat the odds tracking a sophisticated killer who counters his every move, placing those nearest to him?including his young daughter, his renowned physician father, and a lover from the past?in grave danger, and all at the risk of jeopardizing forever the town he loves.
