The Broken Places Summary

The Broken Places by Ace Atkins

A year after becoming sheriff, Quinn Colson is faced with the release of an infamous murderer from prison. Jamey Dixon comes back to Jericho preaching redemption, and some believe him; but for the victim's family, the only thought is revenge.

Another group who doesn't believe him-the men in prison from Dixon's last job, an armored car robbery. They're sure he's gone back to grab the hidden money, so they do the only thing they can: break out and head straight to Jericho themselves.

Colson and his deputy, Lillie, know they've got their work cut out for them. But they don't count on one more unwelcome visitor: a tornado that causes havoc just as events come to a head. Communications are down, the roads are impassable-and the rule of law is just about to snap.

The Broken Places Reviews

Ace Atkins' killing honestly sets a new standard for Southern crime novels. -- Marilyn Stasio * The New York Times Book Review *
Ace Atkins' Quinn Colson novels have been exceptional from the start . . . whether readers are new to the series or fans from the start, The Broken Places will touch them the way all great novels do, profoundly. * Shelf Awareness *
The action is stark and gripping, the Southern locale suitably atmospheric and the bevy of characters convincing. * The Houston Chronicle *
Atkins continues to combine sturdy character studies with an action-packed tale about the contemporary issues of war veterans and small-town corruption . . . The Broken Places again shows what a powerful storyteller Atkins is. * Tulsa World *
Atkins just gets better and better . . . I will throw down against anyone who disagrees with the statement that Atkins is one of our best American authors. Period . . . No matter what literary genre you might favor, The Broken Places is a book you should read and will not forget. * bookreporter.com *
Atkins' voice is graceful and tense . . . Atkins' habit-forming series [shares] a tremendous sense of (rural) place and powerfully nuanced characterization with those of James Lee Burke, Craig Johnson, and C. J. Box. * Booklist *
A high-tension thriller with a hero to rival Jack Reacher * Kirkus Reviews *
Amid the full-throttle plot, Atkins never loses sight of his characters' sensitivities. * Publishers Weekly *
Supercool. 'Manly' writing akin to Elmore Leonard's Detroit Westerns. * Library Journal *
