But one boat isn't like the others.
Rumor has it that the Magnolia Queen has found a way to pull the big players from Las Vegas to its Mississippi backwater. And with them - on sleek private jets that slip in and out of town like whispers in the night - come pro football players, rap stars, and international gamblers, all sharing an unquenchable taste for one thing: blood sport - and the dark vices that go with it. When a childhood friend of Penn's who brings him evidence of these crimes is brutally murdered, he begins a quest to find the men responsible. But the local authorities have been corrupted by the money and power of his hidden enemy and, with his family's lives at stake, Penn realizes his only allies are those bound to him by blood or honor.
Together they must defeat a killer who has an almost preternatural ability to anticipate - and counter - their every move. Ultimately, victory will depend on a bold stroke that will leave one of Penn's allies dead - and Natchez changed forever.

I never understand the people who knock Dick Hill! He is by far the best story teller on Audible! This story is excellent! Thanks audible for another excellent listen!
I have really enjoyed Greg Iles' other books. Always captivating and well-written. And I've appreciated the narration of Dick Hill in other books also. However, I had to struggle to finish this one. The story dragged to the point where I realized often that I had stopped listening. And I found the narration difficult to understand at times. Liked the story, but was overall disappointed. Do listen to a preview before buying.
If you like BBQ and gaming in the south then you will love this book if your a yankie you my not undersand!
I tried to listen to this book five times, but never was able to get more than 10 minutes into the book before I had to stop. I find the narrator's over-blown and contrived inflections and dramatization unlistenable. I wish I could get my money back!
