Publisher's Summary

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 tough-as-nails deputy, Lillie Virgil, deep into the heart of a bootleg baby racket and a trail of darkness and death. And when the two cases collide, Quinn and his allies are forced to realize that, though they may be home from the war, they are now in the fight of their lives.

Good ole boys - gone bad

I love Ace Atkins portrayal of the good ole boys network in this Mississippi mystery. The community ties are prove that there are good boys in that network, and good people who care about their community - even when they feel powerless, they care. Everybody needs a hero, and they have a reluctant one in Quinn Colson. He's not overwhelmingly brilliant, not pretentious or flamboyant, but Quinn is the kind of flawed person everyone wants to befriend. I hope to see him again one day - soon!

Disappointing.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

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 a televangelist on Sunday morning.

Has The Lost Ones turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was OK although some of the characters sounded exactly the same.

Do you think The Lost Ones needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

Any additional comments?

I do not mind certain amount of religious or spiritual twist to a story. I know that it is important to a lot of people and is a big part of their identity but this was way over the top. Tone it down please Mr. Atkins I enjoy your stories too much for that.

Even better than the first book.

I will be looking for the next installment in this series, this is a good one. This story was exciting and the characters are growing. The narrator did a great job on this book.

Another Good Quin Colson Novel

This is the 2nd of Ace Atkins ' Quin Colson crime novels. Colson is now Sheriff, and tangles with Mexican gun runners. I liked the 1st book, and like this one even better. Very engaging characters. Well read.

No let up in Quality

Great dialogue and characterization. A compelling plot and all within a truthful rendering of storytelling that doesn't stretch credibility.You can't ask for much more than that.If you do you're just plain greedy!
