Praise

Praise for The Broken Places
 
“Ace Atkins’ killing honestly sets a new standard for Southern crime novels.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
 
“Ace Atkins’ Quinn Colson novels have been exceptional from the start…whether readers are new to the series or fans from the start, The Broken Places will touch them the way all great novels do, profoundly.”—Shelf Awareness
 
“The action is stark and gripping, the Southern locale suitably atmospheric and the bevy of characters convincing.”—The Houston Chronicle
 
“Atkins continues to combine sturdy character studies with an action-packed tale about the contemporary issues of war veterans and small-town corruption…The Broken Places again shows what a powerful storyteller Atkins is.”—Tulsa World
 
“Atkins’ voice is graceful and tense…Atkins’ habit-forming series [shares] a tremendous sense of (rural) place and powerfully nuanced characterization with those of James Lee Burke, Craig Johnson, and C. J. Box.”—Booklist
 
“A high-tension thriller with a hero to rival Jack Reacher.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Supercool. ‘Manly’ writing akin to Elmore Leonard’s Detroit Westerns.”—Library Journal

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 

“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
