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!

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?
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?
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.
