Book Review: “Cemetery Road” by Greg Isles

book review

I’m excited about this week’s book review, as I can honestly say I’ve never read a Greg Iles book that I didn’t love.

And his latest thumpingly large offering is no exception!

Cemetery Road” is a stand-alone set in America’s Deep South, where a small town is up to its eyes in corruption and secrets going back decades.

A local archaeologist, whose discovery of a Native American settlement threatens the construction of a new paper mill, is murdered. Was the risk to new wealth and jobs the reason?

And when local Pulitzer prize-winner Marshall McEwan returns home to visit his dying father, he finds the trauma and secrets of his childhood have never really gone away.

If you like your thrillers with depth and pace, then this is for you.

If you enjoy it, then you should absolutely read Iles’s Natchez trilogy.

Each of “Natchez Burning”, “The Bone Tree” and “Mississippi Blood” are as hard-hitting as they are thrilling.
