Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

THE DARKEST TRUTHS WILL COME TO LIGHT
Former prosecutor Penn Cage faces the crisis of a lifetime. His family has been torn apart and his father made a fugitive after being accused of murdering an African-American nurse.

Now, Penn has unwittingly started a war with the Double Eagles, a violent faction of the KKK who know more about Dr. Tom Cage than Penn ever did.

Tracking his father through Natchez and beyond, Penn is targeted by criminals and corrupt police whose power reaches the top levels of state government – people who will stop at nothing to prevent the truth from coming out.

To clear Tom’s name, Penn must either make a deal with the devil or destroy him. But there are others pursuing a different mission – one which will lead them to the ‘Bone Tree’, a legendary killing site that conceals far more than the remains of the dead

Manas pārdomas/My thoughts

The Bone Tree jau ar pirmās nodaļas pirmajām lapaspusēm (ir prologs) turpina no tās vietas, kur noslēdzās Natchez Burning. Toms Keidžs un Teksasas reindžers joprojām spiesti bēguļoti, bet nav arī tā, ka viņi būtu bezspēcīgi, Pens joprojām mēģina saprast kādēļ tēvs rīkojas kā viņš rīkojas un Keitlina cenšas vienlaicīgi gan tikt pie mūža lielāka ziņu stāsta, gan palīdzēt topošajam vīratēvam. Gan Pens, gan Keitlina par godu Henrija piemiņai izjūt pienākumu novest lietu līdz galam.

Nedaudz apbēdināja, ka Bone Tree atrašanās vieta tuvējā purvā aktīva meklēšana noris, kad līdz beigām vairs nav salīdzinoši daudz. Koks gadu laikā apaudzis ar krietnu kārtu leģendu un mītu, tāpēc pat FIB, kuri reiz trīs dienas mēģināja kaulu koku atrast un cieta neveiksmi, uzskata, ka tas varētu būt vien vietas apzīmējums, kurā viņi cer atrast tik daudz fizisku pierādījumu, ka Double Eagle grupa ar Forestu Noksu priekšgalā, tiktu tajos burtiski aprakti.

Liels fokuss tiek likts uz notikumiem, kas noveda līdz 1963.gadā notikušās Kenedija slepkavības, un, lai cik neticami tas nešķistu Toms visus šo gadus ir vismaz neapzināti zinājis, un arīdzan bijis iesaistīts savā ziņā iesaistīts. Milzīgs cepums autoram, kurš ticami spējis savīt tagadnes stāstu, kur Tomu apsūdz bijušās māsiņas Violas slepkavībā, un tik nozīmīgu vēsturisku notikumu.

Ja pirmo Penn Cage triloģiju var lasīt atsevišķi, par cik katrā grāmatā savs noziegums, tad šoreiz šķiet, ka lai labāk saprastu kas ir kas, der sākt ar Natchez Burning.

***************************************

The Bone Tree starts right where Natchez Burning ended. Tom Cage and Walt Garrity still are forced to run and hide but it’s not so bad that can’t fight back, Penn still is trying to comprehend why his father does what he does and Caitlin at the same time tries to get her life’s biggest news story and to help her future father-in-law. Both Penn and Caitlin feel responsible to get things done and find justice in honor of Henry Sexton.

I was a bit disappointed that the Bone Tree itself (and an active search for it) made an appearance very late into the book. During time the tree has overgrown with all kinds of myths and legends and that’s why even FBI, which once unsuccessfully tried to find it, assumes that the name Bone Tree might not be a name to an actual tree but to a place deep in a nearby swamp, where they hope to find so much physical evidence that they literally bury Double Eagle group with Forrest Knox in front.

The main focus this time instead of Tom possibly killing his ex-nurse Viola was shifted to a much larger and more conspiratorial scale which takes us to the year of 1963 and the murder Kennedy, and no matter how incredible it might be it seems that Tom Cage unknowingly was involved and has known it all these years (at least in his subconsciousness).

If the first Penn Cage trilogy’s books can be read separately as standalones because of them has a separate crime than this time I think it would be much harder to understand everything that’s happening.
