Northeast Mississippi is hill country, rugged and notorious for outlaws since the Civil War, where killings are as commonplace as they were in the Old West. To Quinn Colson, just back from a tour of Afghanistan, it's home. But home has changed. Quinn returns to a place overrun by corruption. His uncle, the county sheriff, is dead - officially it was suicide, but others whisper murder. In the days that follow, it will be up to Colson, now an Army Ranger, to discover the truth - not only about his uncle, but also about his family, friends, hometown and himself. But once the truth is uncovered, there is no turning back.

Promotional Information

About the Author

A former journalist who cut his teeth as a crime reporter in the newsroom of The Tampa Tribune, he published his first novel, Crossroad Blues, at 27 and became a full-time novelist at 30.While at the Tribune, Ace earned a Pulitzer Prize nomination for a feature series based on his investigation into a forgotten murder of the 1950s. The story became the core of his critically acclaimed novel, White Shadow, which earned raves from noted authors and critics. In his next novels, Wicked City, Devil's Garden, and Infamous, blended first-hand interviews and original research into police and court records with tightly woven plots and incisive characters. The historical novels told great American stories by weaving fact and fiction into a colorful, seamless tapestry.Ace lives on a historic farm outside Oxford, Mississippi with his family.

Reviews

Atkins has written a bunch of great thrillers, but this one sets up a series that should push him to the top of the bestseller list. -- John Sandford Atkins can run rings around most of the names in the crime field. -- Elmore Leonard Atkins is one of the finest crime and thriller writers working today, admired by none other than Elmore Leonard and Michael Connelly, and this, his ninth thriller, proves his talent...Superbly told, in whip-crack prose that echoes Leonard, you never want it to end. * Daily Mail * This exciting thriller leaves you looking forward to the ranger's return. * Sunday Telegraph * I have always been impressed with (jealous of) how easy Ace Atkins makes it look. The Ranger is by far his best work...I hope Quinn Colson and Lillie Virgil stick around for a good long time, -- Michael Connelly

So much good crime fiction out there, so it's good to come across something that's a cut above the others. A well defined, complex and engaging protagonist, an interesting plot that delivers action and suspense, atmospheric setting and a variety of minor characters all delivered in an evocative and accessible style make for a most satisfying read. It's easy to see why the author was selected to carry on writing for the now dead Robert B Parker. I read a lot of crime fiction and I will be getting and reading the other novels in this series.
