Publisher 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.

Not bad

Good simple read

Several things I enjoyed about this book. First it was a good story. Next, the characters are good to know, to like. And, the read is simple. For example, I like James Lee Burke and his Robicheaux character. And even though I'm a college grad, I still find myself looking up the meaning of words every other page. Reading Burke is like being assaulted with words that you'll never see again. I don't enjoy that. This book was entertaining, light reading, and it introduced me to a character I'd like to follow

The Ranger - by a Ranger

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!
