Thirty-six years ago, a nameless black man wandered into Jericho, Mississippi, with nothing but the clothes on his back and a pair of paratrooper boots. Less than two days later, he was accused of rape and murder, hunted down by a self-appointed posse, and lynched. Now evidence has surfaced of his innocence, and county sheriff Quinn Colson sets out not only to identify the stranger's remains, but to charge those responsible for the lynching. As he starts to uncover old lies and dirty secrets, though, he runs up against fierce opposition from those with the most to lose - and they can play dirty themselves. Soon Colson will find himself accused of terrible crimes, and the worst part is, the accusations just might stick. As the two investigations come to a head, it is anybody's guess who will prevail - or even come out of it alive.

The extraordinary new novel in New York Times-bestselling author Ace Atkins' acclaimed series about the real Deep South--" a joy ride into the heart of darkness" (The Washington Post).
Since I have started with book one of this series, I was able to enjoy the characters by having known the history of the series. Great story line not dominated by one or two characters.
As I have mentioned, the storylines while lending each character and events is equally enjoyable throughout the entire book. Quinn and his Father Jason, first meeting in countless years was interesting and left unmentioned in previous books.
Nice job with his different voices used for each character. Nice listen.
The RANGER's Law and his chief Deputy!
This would make a great mini series... Ace Atkins is a must listen.
