Description

THE FIRST NOVEL IN ACE ATKINS’ NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING QUINN COLSON SERIES.

“In Quinn Colson, bestselling author Ace Atkins has created an American hero in a time when we need him.”—C. J. Box 

After years of war, Army Ranger Quinn Colson returns home to the rugged, rough hill country of northeast Mississippi to find his native Tibbehah County overrun with corruption, decay, meth runners, and violence. His uncle, the longtime county sheriff, is dead. A suicide, he’s told, but others—like tomboy deputy Lillie Virgil—whisper murder.

In the days that follow, it’s up to Colson to discover the truth, not only about his uncle, but about his family, his friends, his town, and himself. And once it’s discovered, there’s no going back for this real hero of the Deep South.

    Definitely not on par with Michael Connelly or Patterson. Just average at best. Very shallow character development.

    I'm a former Army Ranger currently living in Mississippi. Ace Atkins did a fine job of putting the warrior ethos in his character and keeps a true relationship to what a former Ranger may think and do. I'm happy to recommend this book (and it's sequel) to anyone looking to insight on an Army Ranger 'after the war' and readers looking to entangle them selves in the emotions of a well written character. Quinn for Sheriff! JER
