Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed, award-winning author comes an extraordinary new series about a real hero and the real Deep South.
Northeast Mississippi: hill country, rugged and notorious for outlaws since the Civil War, where killings are as commonplace as in the Old West. To Quinn Colson, it's home - but not the home he left when he went to Afghanistan. Now an Army Ranger, he returns to a place overrun by corruption, and finds his uncle, the county sheriff, dead - a suicide, he's told, but others whisper murder. In the days that follow, it will be up to Colson to discover the truth, not only about his uncle, but about his family, his friends, his town, and not least, about himself. And once the truth is discovered, there is no turning back.

What the Critics Say

"With terrific, inflected characters, and a dark, subtle sense of place and history, The Ranger is an exceptional novel." (John Sandford)
"One of the best crime writers at work today." (Michael Connelly)
In Colson, Atkins has created a compelling character, a coolly intelligent man who brings both the rare abilities of Special Ops training and a wider experience of the world to his festering little hometown. The plot feels mean and speedy...and the language echoes with the influences of Faulkner and Chandler but finds its own strong voice." (St. Petersburg Times)
