The Innocents Summary

The Innocents by Ace Atkins

She was just 17, a high school dropout named Milly Jones, found walking down the middle of the highway, engulfed in flames. Even in a tough Mississippi county like Tibbehah, it shatters the community, and it is up to Sheriff Quinn Colson, back on the job after a year away, and his deputy Lillie Virgil, to investigate what happened, and why. Before long, however, accusations start to fly; national media and federal authorities descend; and what seemed like a senseless act of violence begins to appear like something even more disturbing - with more victims waiting in the shadows.

The Innocents Reviews

Although this is a novel fueled by testosterone and moonshine, three of its best characters are women . . . 18-year-old Milly Jones grabs your heart * New York Times *
I will throw down against anyone who disagrees with the statement that Atkins is one of our best American writers. Period. * *
Atkins finds his natural-born storytellers everywhere. It's all music to these ears * Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review *
Quinn Colson is my kind of guy. I would follow him anywhere * Lee Child *
With terrific, inflected characters and a dark, subtle sense of place and history, these are exceptional novels. * John Sandford *
Ace Atkins's Quinn Colson series is, quite simply, the best in crime fiction today - and also so much more. With a rich cast of characters, and a hero we can count on, these are tales of morality and desperation, of shocking violence and the enduring resilience of family and community. And the emotional places they take us make them unforgettable * Megan Abbott *
In Quinn Colson, bestselling author Ace Atkins has created an American hero in a time when we need him * C. J. Box *
The rough-and-tumble relationship between two tough-as-nails law officers and the place they love provides plenty of action [and] well-developed characters. * Kirkus Reviews *
