N deep into the past into the heart of a conspiracy of greed and murder involving the Double Eagles a vicious KKK crew headed by one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the state Now Penn must follow a bloody trail that stretches back forty years to one undeniable fact no one black or white young or old brave or not is ever truly saf ☆☆☆☆☆ “não” “nee” “neit” “nein” “no Oh I’m sorry Am I being repetitive? Does that bug you? You might not want to read this for that and numerous other reasonsA GR 2014 nominee for Mystery Thriller Described as an intelligent thriller which is probably why I added it to my tbr and why I had to wait a l o n g time for my turn on Overdrive What I don’t know and cannot understand is why I finished the 850 pages Admittedly I was liking the first 400 when the plane started losing power and thrust with the inevitable outcome Everybody’s dead I mean what was the point?”Exactly Caitlin what was it exactly? Except you and Penn don’t die because that would be like killing off Tom Cruise in the Mission Impossible series Most of the others are tortured and mutilated then murdered by flaying crucifixion burning etc over and over and over again Pay attention to the title And the reader’s reward for this? A plot that does not resolve It’s #1 of a trilogy and the main mysteries are all left hanging I felt like hanging myself after finishing this I need a book antidote I need to create a new shelf Total Waste Of My Time
