If I wanted a political opinion and lies I would watch cnn. Keep your democratic politics out of your novel. I will never read Greg Iles again
The story could have been so much better if Greg had kept Marshall as a purely fictional character. Instead he tried to input TDS, atheism and a non-Southern personality into his lead character and his father.
Poorly written fiction. Keep current events out of fiction, please. You’ll lose half your readers.
No good guys even the so called better people are despicable.Iles can’t help himself with his political bias,it’s not relevant and diminished the story
Iles is one of my favorite writers; although, his stories sadden me. Being a prodigal daughter, I can related to the complexity of Pain, Hope, Love, Despair, Regret and Loss. Of realizing, as an adult, the ghostly veil of segregation beneath the surface of my childhood, of the evil men and women still do based on skin color and greed. And, yet, then and now, I see resilience and I see Hope for a better world where actions and character may once again be that we are judged upon. I see acceptance and change for the better. And, yet the darkness of hate and evil still linger at the edges, still raising its ugly head. Iles captures all those emotions and more as well as speaking the Truth about what goes on behind the curtains of Southern ‘civility’ and hospitality. Excellent as always.
Thought the book was exceptional; couldn’t put it down. However, all of us are so tired of our national political problems and conflicts and wish both parties would grow up. Unfortunately the book had political leanings...when most of us want to just enjoy a good read. There’s a time and a place.
Great read as with his other books! It was hard to put down.
Anxious for his next novel!
I wasn’t planning on buying it but after reading reviews from cry baby magats, I knew I had to read it!! Excellent, intelligent read!
My first Greg Iles book but not the last. Beautifully written with enough plot turns to make you dizzy. So worth the time to read it.
Huge fan of Greg’s work, started with Quiet Game which was great then all of the others never disappointed. Honestly could have done without the political statements contained in this read, one of the reasons I do read fiction is to escape the craziness of today.
Poker Club was a bad group of dudes for sure, much like the Double Eagles, enjoyed how they got what they had coming at the end of the book.
Not a bad read but not the best, bring Penn Cage back.
Really need to keep your political opinions out of your books. And to think I purchased this. Can I get a refund?
Engrossing, sometimes compelling, not predictable. Rolls right along with enough introspection to be a serious read, not a light read for lazy minds. A very good book.
Another great read. Deeper and even more engrossing for including the current cancer of bigotry, lies, and misogyny that threaten our country. If it offends some trumpskins , maybe it will also spur a few to eventually move out of the swamp of their rationalizations. A must read!
