Publisher's Summary

The electrifying new novel in New York Times best-selling author Ace Atkins' acclaimed series about the real Deep South.
He is only in his early 30s, 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 from 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.

Great read

Ace Atkins always tells a great story that feels true. This story, like the previous Quinn Colton stories is worth the listen.

A true version of the south

Ace Atkins again gives us a great crime story that highlights the hypocrisy thar is the South: pious, racist folk who step over their mother's dead body for a penny. Quinn Colson knows the world does not work that way and these stories are about his struggle against a society bent on being evil. It is a losing proposition, but I enjoy and admire his effort. I look forward to the new book. Great listen: the actor does an excellent job with voices.
