And with them—on sleek private jets that slip in and out iiles town like whispers in the night—come pro football players, rap stars, and international gamblers, all sharing an unquenchable taste for one thing: It is his descriptions of the picturesque and slower-paced city and surrounding area that led me to choose this book.

The Devil’s Punchbowl (Penn Cage #3) by Greg Iles
View all 16 comments. Swore, in fact, that I could trust neither my own police department nor any official of the city government. One day, I simply woke up and realized that I had not been divinely ordained to punish the guilty. Cage turned to writing and became a successful novelist, but local demands saw him become involved in a major civil rights case, a twisted drug case, and of course a murder investigation. As I bend to slide down the hill, an urgent whisper breaks the silence of the night: Cage also has worked with Danny Kelly, a former army special ops in Afghanistan who brings his Blackwater type organization with him to assist the mayor of Natchez since he cannot trust his own law enforcement apparatus.
The result is a roller coaster ride, with lots of unexpected twists and turns. Once again, Penn Cage is at his self-righteous best in The Devil’s Punchbowl as he spends pages and pages agonizing over either his guilt at what his inaction has allowed to happen or his determination to not let Sands get away with what he is doing.

I read most of them out of order and it was never a problem. The italicized font was really ridiculous and silly as any intelligent reader could see that the point of view was being switched.

Once you have gotten to the last sentences in Chapter 1, you are in deep and there is no return as you experience all of the gritty, testosterone driven atrocities that can be put in one book. I can almost hear Tim at his blackjack table on the Magnolia Queen: I wanted to focus on the dishonest nature of these reviews, but that ilea be break my own code of conduct.
Before Jessup can deliver proof of his allegations, he’s tortured and killed. Ultimately, victory will depend on a bold stroke that will leave one of Penn’s allies dead—and Natchez changed forever. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
