The devil's punchbowl / Greg Iles.

Iles, Greg. (Author).


"Penn Cage was elected mayor of Natchez, Mississippi -- the hometown he returned to after the death of his wife -- on a tide of support for change. But two years into his term, casino gambling has proved a sure bet for bringing in new jobs and fresh money to this fading jewel of the Old South. But deep inside the Magnolia Queen, a fantastical repurposed steamboat, a depraved hidden world draws high-stakes players with money to burn on their unquenchable taste for blood sport and the dark vices that go with it. When a childhood friend hands him blood-chilling evidence, Penn must beat the odds tracking a sophisticated killer who counters his every move, placing those nearest to him -- including his young daughter, his renowned physician father, and a lover from the past -- in grave danger, and all at the risk of jeopardizing forever the town he loves." --Baker & Taylor.
