The Bone Tree by Greg Iles is the second book in the trilogy that started with Natchez Burning. Both novels are phenomenal and once again I couldn’t listen fast enough to see what would happen next.
The Bone Tree continues right where Natchez Burning ended. Now I listened to them back to back so it was easy for me to pick up the story right away but even so the author recaps the first novel nicely and there is no problem picking up the storyline. However I would still recommend reading Natchez Burning first as you need the back story. There is no way to go on without minor spoilers so if you are going to read the series you may not want to go on.
The evil lurking in Natchez has been exposed. Penn, his father, his fiancé, and others have worked hard to make it so. In doing so they’ve caused even more chaos and danger. Many who have been exposed are people with a legal right to power and even more terrifying they use it to their benefit. There are so many secrets, lies, betrayals, and killings that this story keeps the reader turning the pages as fast as they can.
I can’t recommend this series enough. The plot and characters are simply amazing. Once again I listened to the audiobook which is narrated by Robert Petkoff and he does such a great job of bringing this story alive and at more than 32 hours that’s a good thing. Highly recommended!
