Publisher's Summary

A year after becoming sheriff, Quinn Colson is faced with the release of an infamous murderer from prison. Jamey Dixon comes back to Jericho preaching redemption, and some believe him; but for the victim’s family, the only thought is revenge. Another group who doesn’t believe him - the men in prison from Dixon’s last job, an armored car robbery. They’re sure he’s gone back to grab the hidden money, so they do the only thing they can: break out and head straight to Jericho themselves. Colson and his deputy, Lillie, know they’ve got their work cut out for them. But they don’t count on one more unwelcome visitor: a tornado that causes havoc just as events come to a head. Communications are down, the roads are impassable - and the rule of law is just about to snap.

    "Not as good as others in the series"

    The first part of this story was good as one would expect from the first two books in the series. The second half was more like a sermon rather than part of this what I've come to expect from this author. I don't mind the mentioning of God or religion, however I don't listen to books concerning religion as the main story line. I'm going to have to look at reviews for the fourth book in the series as I won't bother if it delves into religion as this one did.

    "Disappointing."
    Would you try another book from Ace Atkins and/or Brian d'Arcy James?

    Maybe.


    What was most disappointing about Ace Atkins’s story?

    If you want to read a "Yes, Jesus loves me" testimonial then go ahead. Two thirds of the book were quite entertaining but the last part describing the tornado and its aftermath was just much too tedious. I found myself skipping several chapters. And what's up with the Jesus love fest? It was like watching Jimmy Lee Swaggart on Sunday morning.


    What aspect of Brian d'Arcy James’s performance would you have changed?

    Some of the characters sounded exactly the same but overall his performance was enjoyable.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment because I enjoyed Mr. Atkins' other stories a lot more.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Atkins, turn the Jesus talk down a bit. I don't mind religious or spiritual talk or twist in a story because I know it is a big part of many people's lives but this was way over the top.
