The Sinners - Quinn Colson (Paperback)Ace Atkins (author)
- We can order this
The Pritchards had never been worth a damn--an evil, greedy family who made their living dealing drugs and committing mayhem. Years ago, Colson's late uncle had put the clan's patriarch in prison, but now he's getting out, with revenge, power, and family business on his mind. To make matters worse, a shady trucking firm with possible ties to the Gulf Coast syndicate has moved into Tibbehah, and they have their own methods of intimidation.
With his longtime deputy Lillie Virgil now working up in Memphis, Quinn Colson finds himself having to fall back on some brand-new deputies to help him out, but with Old West-style violence breaking out, and his own wedding on the horizon, this is without doubt Colson's most trying times as sheriff. Cracks are opening up all over the county, and shadowy figures are crawling out through them - and they're all heading directly for him.

US crime fiction doesn't come grittier than this as Atkins condenses America's current problems of racism, misogyny and violence into a thoroughly entertaining if violent read * Irish Independent *
Atkins brings this [the rural US] to life and the series seems to get better with every book.
