The Broken Places (Quinn Colson Novels)by Ace Atkins
Synopses & Reviews
For fans of Justified and James Lee Burke: THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING SERIES FEATURING "A HERO TO RIVAL JACK REACHER."--Kirkus Reviews
"Keep an eye on Ace Atkins, he can write rings around most of the names in the crime field."--Elmore Leonard
A year after becoming sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi, Quinn Colson is faced with a pardoned killers return to Jericho. Jamey Dixon now preaches redemption and forgiveness, but the family of the woman he was convicted of killing isnt buying it. They warn Quinn that his sisters relationship with Dixon could be fatal. Others dont think the new preacher is a changed man, either—a couple of dangerous convicts who confided in Dixon about an armored car robbery believe hes 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 dont 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.
