Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books: 10 Best Novels for Summer Reading, 2013

In the third gripping crime novel in Ace Atkins’s New York Times bestselling series, small town sheriff Quinn Colson takes on deadly criminals and even deadlier weather.

A year after becoming sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi, Quinn Colson is faced with a pardoned killer’s return to Jericho. Jamey Dixon now preaches redemption and forgiveness, but the family of the woman he was convicted of killing isn’t buying it. They warn Quinn that his sister’s relationship with Dixon could be fatal. Others don’t think the new preacher is a changed man, either—a couple of dangerous convicts who confided in Dixon about an armored car robbery believe he’s after the money they hid. So they do the only thing they can: break out and head straight to Jericho, leaving a trail of bodies in their wake.

Colson and his deputy, Lillie, have their work cut out for them. But they don’t count on one more unwelcome visitor: a tornado that causes havoc just as the manhunt heats up. Communications are down, the roads are impassable—and the rule of law is just about to snap.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The action is stark and gripping, the Southern locale suitably atmospheric, and the bevy of characters convincing.” Houston Chronicle
“Ace Atkins’s killing honesty sets a new standard for Southern crime novels.’” New York Times Book Review
“Ace Atkins’ Quinn Colson novels have been exceptional from the start…Whether readers are new to the series or fans from the start, The Broken Places will touch them the way all great novels do, profoundly.” Shelf Awareness
“Atkins’ voice is graceful and tense…Atkins’ habit-forming series [shares] a tremendous sense of (rural) place and powerfully nuanced characterization with those of James Lee Burke, Craig Johnson, and C.  J. Box.” Booklist
“A high-tension thriller with a hero to rival Jack Reacher.” Kirkus Reviews
“Amid the full-throttle plot, Atkins never loses sight of his characters’ sensitivities.” Publishers Weekly
