Description
In his fourth thriller, following Broken Places and the Edgar Award nominees The Lost Ones and The Ranger, former Army Ranger turned Mississippi sheriff Quinn Colson is confronted with a cold case that heats up quickly. Four decades ago, two teenage girls were held at gunpoint by a stranger, sexually assaulted, and shot. One survived: Diane Tull, now in her 50s, struggling with survivor guilt and also feeling responsible for the subsequent lynching of an unknown black man who was grabbed by a mob, none of whom was charged. Following new evidence of the man's innocence, Colson tries to solve both crimes, and finds himself caught between two factions who want the past to stay forgotten.

"Articulate characters [and] a densely layered stack of stories. [Ace] Atkins finds his natural-born storytellers everywhere. It's all music to these ears."—NYTBR

"Atkins is at the top of his game in Quinn's fourth appearance, filled with nonstop action and moral ambiguities. The sheriff's many flaws only enhance his human appeal."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Quinn is facing a seemingly impossible string of complications in this fourth series installment, but somehow all these layers of catastrophe make sense together, a testament to Atkins' ability to capture small-town life. The dive into Jericho's dark past makes for great reading as Atkins rolls through a handful of perspectives, propelling the story's threads toward an adrenaline-laced, Wild West–style conclusion."—Booklist (starred review)
