Publisher Description

In this “morbidly funny”(The New York Times) thriller in Ace Atkin’s southern crime series, former Mississippi sheriff Quinn Colson might be out of a job—but that doesn't mean he’s staying out of trouble...
Quinn Colson is unemployed—voted out of his position as sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi. He has offers in bigger and better places, but before he goes, Colson’s got one more job to do—bring down county kingpin Johnny Stagg’s criminal operations for good.

At least that's the plan. But in the middle of the long, hot summer, somebody smashes through the house of a wealthy mill owner, making off with a safe full of money and shooting a deputy. As Deputy Lillie Virgil hunts the criminals and draws Colson in, other people join the chase, too, but with a much more personal motive. For that safe contained more than just money—it held secrets. And as Colson well knows, some secrets can kill.

Another great journey & wild ride

Really enjoyed first 3 books & delighted to discover this 4th. Love this southern Ranger & how the patchwork quilt of his prior life unfurls in the midst of new one. I know Jack Reacher & he"s no Jack Reacher! :-) Although they are both, disciplined warriors guided by a similar moral compass, are both loyal to their friends & family (although exhibited at more random intervals in Reacher's case), both guardians of the vulnerable and mistreated, our Ranger inhabits a broader scope of feelings, evidences more capacity for tenderness & a peaceful (if complicated) connection to home home, than Reacher.still enjoy reacher but more of the ranger please!

The Redeemers

This is the last QuinnColson I will purchase. The foul language gets thicker while the plots get thinner. I really liked the first couple of books, but moving on to better things, like Reacher.

Another great Quinn Colson Novel

I first started reading Ace Atkins when he took over the Spenser series when Robert Parker died several years ago. He brought some new energy to the series but with a voice that was very similar to Parker’s.

That brought me to read his own series of books with Quinn Colson as the central character and I was not disappointed. The new book continues to follow Quinn Colson and continues with the same energy as the previous books in the series. I can’t wait for the next book.
