Great start of a hopefully long series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ranger (Quinn Colson Novels) (Hardcover)
I actually read the follow up book to this one first (The Lost Ones) and since it was great I just had to find and read the first one in the series as well. That turned out to be a great idea since The Ranger is an excellent story told by an author who knows how to write.
The Story is about a ranger sergeant home on leave for a funeral and how he gets tangled up in the local crime scene in his small home town in Mississippi. This is a perfect mix of mystery combined with a number of interesting characters. The Story just flows along and you with it. The Ending is a little like OK Coral but it does not feel to artificial. 300+ pages just went by rapidly.
Ace Atkins has created an interesting hero in Quinn Colson that I hope to meet a number of times in the future.
