Greg Iles has lost his writing mojo. It is exruciatingly obvious he is just looking for a paycheck with this book. Extremmely disappointed.

Political views and over exploitation of southern racism was boring and overly imaginative. Unrealistic portrayals except of family dynamics and bonds of the two main brothers. Adolescent characters nicely done.

Totally engaging, Not Penn Cage, but unputdownable nonetheless.

Greg Iles did it again. No one can write about small, Southern towns as well as this author. He incorporates all the things we want in an escapism experience—greed, passion, murder, secrets—bundled up with fascinating characters and our stereotype of small towns. Highly recommended.

Absolutely terrific! Could not put it down. Characters built so that you knew them and every detail. Reading it draws you in completely and you lose yourself in the story. I can’t wait for more novels so Mr. Iles. PLEASE WRITE FASTER! You are one of my most favorite writers. Lynn

Very disappointing. Plot was obvious and tedious. Iles is too good a writer for this book. Don't bother.

OMG - What fantastic book!!! It took a little while to set up the story and it went full speed ahead. Secrets and lies never stay hidden especially in a small town. Marshall McEwan's move home to help take care of his terminally ill father starts a series of events that cannot be stopped until life's are destroyed and some lay dead.

Cemetery Road by Greg Iles is a compelling, very highly recommended Southern novel of suspense and one of the best novels I've read this year. "I never meant to kill my brother. I never set out to hate my father. I never dreamed I would bury my own son. Nor could I have imagined that I would betray the childhood friend who saved my life, or win a Pulitzer Prize for telling a lie. All these things I have done, yet most people I know would call me an honorable man." opening Marshall McEwan has returned to his hometown of Bienville, Mississippi, because his father is dying. Marshall swore he'd never return when he left at eighteen, but his mother needs his help. His father is terminally ill, and the 150-year-old family owned newspaper, The Watchman, is struggling. He also knows that his first love, Jet, who is married to his best friend, Paul, will be in Bienville. Marshall begins his story when Buck McKibben, the scoutmaster who was a surrogate father to him after his father ignored him, is murdered. But Marshall, who is an accomplished investigative journalist, begins to look into the murder and the role that the Poker Club could have played in it. The Poker Club is a group of wealthy good old boy patriarchs who rule the town and control it behind the scenes. They have been running the town as long as The Watchman has been around. Now they have managed to land a deal for a billion-dollar Chinese paper mill to come to town and start an economic upturn for the town. It seems that Buck's death may have been tied to a discovery that would stop that from happening. "To understand this story, you must swim between two times like a person moving from wakefulness to sleep and then back again." The story requires the disclosure of background information from years ago that affects the present day machinations. The narrative is a tangled tale that includes the death of brothers and sons, friendship, first loves, war, dysfunctional families, secrets, betrayals, corruption, and the power of wealth. Iles has penned another excellent, engrossing, spellbinding novel that will seize your attention, induce many diverse emotions, and not let up until the ending. I was completely immersed in the narrative from start to finish and the pages flew by as I compulsively read "just one more chapter." This is a long book, but it doesn't feel overly long. The plot is intricate and complicated on several different levels. The setting is well-developed and the characters are fully realized. You may find yourself talking back to Marshall, telling him to use his brain, as he makes some decisions that you (and he) know are mistakes. The quality of the writing, though, is what sets Iles apart and makes this exceptional novel one of the best I have read this year. It has been awhile since I simply had to save quotes from a novel, and I have pages full of them from Cemetery Road. For those paying attention, there is a plethora of wisdom and universal truths found in Iles writing. Disclosure: My review copy was courtesy of HarperCollins.

Marshall has returned home because his dad is sick. Marshall has taken over the small town newspaper his dad started. He has also taken up with an old girlfriend….and she is married to his best friend! And if that’s not enough to entertain you, one of his mentors is murdered. As most of you know, Greg Iles is my all time favorite author. Not only is he from Mississippi, he has, what I call, “smart reads”. You cannot skim anything. If you do, you miss a key point of the story. He also has some of the most realistic characters ever. Marshall is no exception. He makes bad choices and bad decisions. But, his ultimate goal is to find out who killed his friend and why. And the why? Well! You must read to find out because, it may not be what you think. This is an intricate piece of work full of twists and turns small town corruption and power. It is not only about one murder or three..it is about relationships, especially the relationship between father and son. It also has one of the best opening chapters of any book I have ever read. I received this novel from William Morrow via Edelweiss for a honest review.
