Natchez Burning; Greg Iles

Unsolved racial murders from the 1960s are brought back under investigation after the elderly players are dying, or murdered in today’s still racially charged Natchez, Mississippi. Lots of characters and interesting history, but christ almighty there is no need for 900 pages. Hire an editor already. I did finish it though as the last couple of hundred pages (!) picked up a bit. I was very surprised at the glowing reviews I looked at after I read it as I thought it was mostly a bloated bore.
