Death is the end, and if a man doesn't speak before it silences him, then his deepest secrets go with him. From #1 New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles comes an e-original novella featuring former prosecutor Penn Cage, a story of family secrets and justice denied, plus an excerpt from his new novel, Natchez Burning. When a heart attack sends Penn's father, Tom Cage, to the ER, Tom begs that his son be brought to his side to hear a dying declaration. But when Penn arrives, Tom denies ever making the request-keeping his secrets for another day. The emergency hurls Penn back to a chilling case in Houston, where he worked in a DA's office known as the "death factory," which sent more killers to death row than any other in America. While Penn cares for his ailing wife, a tormented forensic technician brings him evidence of a crime lab in chaos, throwing past convictions into doubt and begging Penn to prevent an imminent travesty of justice. With the desperation of a man fighting death in his own home, Penn must find a way to bring the machinery of the death factory to a halt. Included here is an extended sneak preview of Natchez Burning, the first installment in an epic trilogy featuring Penn Cage.… (més)

This 100 page novella fills a long break between The Devil's Punchbowl (2009) and the recently published Natchez Burning. Penn Cage, a former criminal prosecutor is back in his native Natchez, now mayor, when his father Tom (the Town physician) is taken to the hospital with a heart attack and asks for his son to share a family secret. When it is clear he will recover, Tom denies the whole thing. Meanwhile, Tom's brother Jack arrives in town and Penn goes back to his time in Houston, recalling his wife Sarah’s death from cancer, dealing with their daughter's emotional troubles, and a previous case in Houston known as The Death Factory (for sending many killers to death row), on the basis of evidence, some of which may have been tainted. Glad I read it, but it is really only for true Greg Iles fans.

I don't think anyone could be a real crime fiction lover and not be aware of Greg Iles. Until now, that's all I was-- aware-- and since Iles tends to write quite weighty tomes, I decided to read this novella to see if I wanted to read more.

What I found was a well-told tale with lyrical descriptive passages and a main character I quickly grew to like. The storytelling flowed well, and the plot certainly kept my attention, especially with its emotional elements concerning Penn's father and wife. All my reactions were positive but for some strange reason, Penn didn't set my world on fire. As much as I liked him, I have no real burning desire to read more (although I may very well do so). This is a reaction I very seldom have so I'll have to ponder it a bit more. I may yet become a Penn Cage fan. Only time will tell. ( )

Racconto breve di Greg Iles. Nonostante sia molto breve è molto bello. ( )

I don't usually like or read the Novellas within series but read this one as the library had a copy. Have to say I loved this one, which I think has set it up nicely for the next book & linked in very well with the previous book. Great emotions were exposed in this book about events around the death of Penn's wife (which happened before the first book in the series) and sone of the reasons Penn went back to Natchez other than his wife's death.
