Praise for Ace Atkins
“In Quinn Colson, bestselling author Ace Atkins has created an American hero in a time when we need him.” —C. J. Box
“Ace Atkins’s Quinn Colson series is, quite simply, the best in crime fiction today—and also so much more. With a rich cast of characters, and a hero we can count on, these are tales of morality and desperation, of shocking violence and the enduring resilience of family and community. And the emotional places they take us make them unforgettable.” —Megan Abbott
“With terrific, inflected characters and a dark, subtle sense of place and history, these are exceptional novels.” —John Sandford
“Quinn Colson is my kind of guy. I would follow him anywhere.” —Lee Child
“Atkins finds his natural-born storytellers everywhere. It’s all music to these ears.” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“I will throw down against anyone who disagrees with the statement that Atkins is one of our best American writers. Period.” —

Praise for The Innocents

“[N]othing short of riveting, a page turner that you will stay up all night to read….Atkins is a master of description on all points of the continuum….While I inwardly groan at the thought of having to wait another year for more Quinn Colson, my feelings are balanced by the certainty that it will be worth it.” — 

“The rough-and-tumble relationship between two tough-as-nails law officers and the place they love provides plenty of action [and] well-developed characters.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Quinn has to be the most refreshing New York Times Bestselling series character (there are numerous unsung independent publishing protagonists just as worthy) that I’ve come across in quite some time, and I’m hard pressed to name others that compare on this level—and, holy hell, that’s an invigorating statement to make…What else is there to say…read The Innocents by Ace Atkins. It’s literary crime fiction worthy of the hype.”—
