When Army Ranger Quinn Colson, newly-elected sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi, is called out to investigate a child abuse case, he finds a horrifying scene of neglect, thirteen empty cribs, and a shoebox full of money. Janet and Ramon Torres seem to have skipped town -- but Colson's sure they'll come back for the cash. Convinced that they have a taste for guns, drugs, and human trafficking, Colson and Deputy Lillie Virgil find a link between the fugitive couple and a drug cartel that control most of the Texas border.

Another excellent novel by Atkins. This is just so believable about the attitudes and doings of the deep South. Colson is very well portrayed as a modest returning hero. I like all the characters especially his friend Boom and Lillie, his female deputy.

Excellent book. Worth reading.

Ace Atkins has done it again. Atkins is considered one of the top American writers of crime fiction and in “The Lost Ones”, the second book in his new series of “Quinn Colson” novels, he clearly demonstrates the reasons for this critical regard. This book follows on closely from “The Ranger”, the first book in the series, which was nominated for an Edgar award. The setting for both novels is rural Mississippi and in addition to the usual themes to be found in crime novels, examines the challenges faced by returning veterans as they reintegrate into civilian life… or not.

Ace Atkins is a great writer. He makes Mississippi come alive as a present day community. I want to sit outside in an adirondack chair and eat breakfast with Quinn, Jason and Caddy!
