Historical and action packed. Fast read with lots of action.

After I was able to dot the commas (names) I could hardly put this book down although it's almost 700 pages!

Not having read the first two of this series, took sometime to get to know the personalities. Fantastic book. Hated for it to end. Would definitely give it 5 stars

I waited so long to read this so at the beginning I started it with a chip on my shoulder. I found out from the author that the publisher chose to hold back the book for 2 years. But I also didn't remember all the details of the previous books - but while it seemed slow at the beginning, it suddenly gathered speed and took off. I would say the best of the triology. My favorite. But now, we'll have to wait for the next one - hopefully not 2 years - and I hear that Penn, Serenity and Lincoln are in it!

A doubt slipped in while I was waiting for my turn. What if the author simply fell apart and the story flopped. No disappointment when I finally read the book. EXCELLENT!! The trilogy was well worth reading.

Superb! This author developed the court trial to perfection. At every stage there was a different twist. It was marvelous to read how well his thought process was verbally relayed. Satisfying to the end. If the trilogy is not made into a movie/series, I will be surprised.
Other comments made mention of the strong and deliberate violence that put the issues of race relations and torture such a real part of what this book was about.
I do not recommend it to those who cannot face the truth of the dark side of U.S. history. If you can get past the first chapter in Natchez Burning (book 1), then it will be worth it. I believe that men would find the trilogy breathtaking. Enjoy.

Iles is a master story teller. This is a great book and a part of a great trilogy. He has the ability to describe the south in such a way that you feel you are there.

I am a Greg Iles fan. The NATCHEZ BURNING trilogy, of which MISSISSIPPI BLOOD is the last book has been a great read and this book is every bit as engaging, entertaining and thought provoking as the first two. It is a bit different though in that this is more a balanced legal thriller and mystery thriller than the other two. At the same time, for those of us who grew up in the 50s and 60s, the backdrop story of race relations compelled me to think back on those times and my own experiences - some of which were uplifting and some of which were disturbing. But I love the fact that Iles can entertain us with a great thriller, even while provoking us to think about profound issues. He is much like Leon Uris in that regard. So I loved this book and the other two. But to be frank, I did recommend Natchez Burning to a friend who was looking for a good novel. After several days, she told me she had to put the book down because it 'hurt her soul.' I get that too. It is a hard story told in stark language and full of moments of explicit violence. So in fairness, I would want potential readers to be aware of that.
