"One of the best crime writers at work today."--Michael Connelly The electrifying new novel in New York Times-bestselling author Ace Atkins's acclaimed series about the real Deep South. He is only in his early thirties, but now Quinn Colson is jobless--voted out of office as sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi, thanks to the machinations of county kingpin Johnny Stagg. He has offers, in bigger and better places, but before he goes, he's got one more job to do--bring down Stagg's criminal operations for good. At least that's the plan. But in the middle of the long, hot summer, a trio of criminals stage a bold, wall-smashing break-in at the home of a local lumber mill owner, making off with a million dollars in cash from his safe, which is curious, because the mill owner is wealthy--but not that wealthy. None of this has anything to do with Colson, but during the investigation, two men are killed, one of them the new sheriff. His friend, acting sheriff Lillie Virgil, and a dangerous former flame, Anna Lee Stevens, both ask him to step in, and reluctantly he does, only to discover that that safe contained more than just money--it held secrets. Secrets that could either save Colson--or destroy him once and for all"-- Provided by publisher.

I am reading the series in sequence in a relatively short time, so I see this particular book as part of a whole It fits nicely and has plenty of changes to the characters and even the county as a whole.
The author keeps his characters changing, making the story refreshing, not doing things the same way every time. Quinn's world is messy, just like the world in which we live. Atkins work in this series is evocative of plots and villains created by Elmore Leonard. Although he hasn't yet written as well as Leonard, it's certainly possible, and this series is trending upward.

An O.K. book. too many characters and not the best character development...somewhat difficult to follow.

Summed under ten words. Atrocious, pathetic, no redeeming value.
