    Wonderful author. Interesting topics, I've read ALL your books. The Natchez Burning trilogy was the BEST. I also grew up in the 60s in the South, but have enjoyed the greatness of travel and lived abroad. GOOD LUCK, take care and write more😸

    Absolutely liked this podcast just finished Mississippi Blood. I have read all of Gregs books.

    Hearing how an author writes his or her books is wonderful

    What a delight to hear you speak so openly on so many topics. You are a delight of an author. I am now reading Mississippi Blood very slowly. I have read all your other books and have enjoyed them also. Take care and keep up the superb work!! Thanks
    P.S. I also so enjoyed all the libraries where I have live. New York, New Jersey and Tucson.

    Greg Iles is going to go down in history as one of our great writers. I have so much respect and admiration for his work. To sit down with a new book of Greg's is one of life's pleasures. Well done sir!

    So appreciate Greg Iles comments about racism in the north. I recall vividly a conversation I had with friends about this issue, when I lived in Mi. How easy to pass judgment on others when you have lived among people just like yourself your whole life.
    Love reading Greg Iles!
