Overview

In this novel from New York Times-bestselling crime master Ace Atkins, violence comes in many forms...and this time it may be more than Quinn Colson can handle.

The Pritchards had never been worth a damn--an evil, greedy family who made their living dealing drugs and committing mayhem. Years ago, Colson's late uncle had put the clan's patriarch in prison, but now he's getting out, with revenge, power, and family business on his mind. To make matters worse, a shady trucking firm with possible ties to the Gulf Coast syndicate has moved into Tibbehah, and they have their own methods of intimidation.

With his longtime deputy Lillie Virgil now working up in Memphis, Quinn Colson finds himself having to fall back on some brand-new deputies to help him out, but with Old West-style violence breaking out, and his own wedding on the horizon, this is without a doubt Colson's most trying time as sheriff. Cracks are opening up all over the county, and shadowy figures are crawling out through them--and they're all heading directly for him.

Quinn Colson finally is going to tie the knot, but events tend to interfere with the planning, much less the ceremony itself. It’s a good thing Maggie Powers, his betrothed, is an understanding woman. As sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi, Colon is hoping for some quiet, but an invasion of a couple of gangsters, a drug war and assorted underworld internecine strife tends to interfere. Moreover, Quinn’s best man, Boom Kimbrough, gets a job driving trucks for a shady outfit that traffics in drugs and women. When a couple of wannabes, the Pritchard brothers, who grow the best weed, want to branch out and hijack Boom’s semi, the gangsters blame Boom as a conspirator and almost kill him, giving Quinn additional incentive to take action. The latest in this long-running series, the novel is written in the inimitable style Ace Atkins has developed to portray the south inhabited by the characters he writes about. The series consists of excellent crime novels, filled with colorful characters. Recommended.

I absolutely LOVE this series by Ace Atkins. While this was the 8th book in the series, it was my 4th or 5th book. I didn't start at the beginning, but I started as soon as I could. Tibbehah County has always got something going on, even though it's so small. And this book had lots going on. There are three different sets of bad guys and you definitely don't want to get caught up in their crap. Quinn Colson is kind of like an old time Western sheriff IMO. He's laid back, however, he's not going to take any crap off anyone. He's someone I think I could hang around for a while. Old man Pritchard cracked me up in this book. Having spent a long time in jail and just now getting out. I had never heard of Red Velvet Oreo's until this book. And yes, I had to get some at the grocery store the last time that I went. And yes, they are delicious. I especially loved the part about Proctor and Gamble. I remember when everyone said they were the devil company due to their logo. That was a historical event you won't see in many history books. As I've said, I love this series and can't wait to read the next one. Thanks to Penguin Group Putnam and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
