a masterpiece
The final chapter in Greg Iles's trilogy includes Natchez Burning, The Bone Tree and finally Mississippi Blood. I was biting my nails waiting for this superb conclusion to one of the best series I have ever read. It took over 8 years to finish and I am sure readers who have been following this have been wondering what would happen to their main characters. This series is so special that it is being adapted for a TV series by Sony Pictures. You really need to read the books in order to achieve the full depth and comprehension of the events that took place. Despite being 800 pages, I was so absorbed that I stayed up to 1am to finish. The setting takes place in Natchez, Mississippi where Tom Cage's father is accused of the murder of his former African American nurse with whom he has had a love affair. Despite centering on the trial, the former issues of the white supremacy group whose cunning leader"Snake" are explored along with reconciliation, forgiveness,and family love. A conclusion that is so worthy that I want to shout it from the rooftops. If you miss this series, it is your loss...

Great story, but long on words
After reading the complete series, I do not feel like I understand the racial divide in this country any better than before delving into 1800 pages. The main character came across as extremely vain and condescending, not strong and moral....very arrogant. But such is life.

I would not recommend the book to a friend... maybe my husband...
