    Northeast Mississippi: hill country, rugged and notorious for outlaws since the Civil War, where killings are as commonplace as in the Old West. To Quinn Colson, it's home - but not the home he left when he went to Afghanistan. Now an Army Ranger, he returns to a place overrun by corruption, and finds his uncle, the county sheriff, dead - a suicide, he's told, but others whisper murder.

    A New Favorite

    I had not heard about Ace Atkins or Jeff Woodman before I saw this listing on Audible. I thought I may as well give it a try so I downloaded it. On..Show More »

    Fresh from 10 years as a U.S. Army Ranger, Quinn Colson finds his hands full as the newly elected sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi. An old buddy running a local gun shop may be in over his head when stolen army rifles start showing up in the hands of a Mexican drug gang. At the same time, an abused-child case leads Quinn and his deputy, Lillie Virgil, deep into the heart of a bootleg baby racket and a trail of darkness and death. When the cases collide, Quinn and his allies realize they are in the fight of their lives.

    Good ole boys - gone bad

    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.

    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 p..Show More »

    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.

    Nice recovery

    Ace Adkins has a nice recovery from the last book in the series. This book has returned to the storyline of the first two books, and I welcome the ret..Show More »
