The New York Times named THE SINNERS one of the top 10 books to read this week. Ace is keeping great company on the list, along with his friend, Megan Abbott. Of THE SINNERS, the Times editors wrote:
THE SINNERS, by Ace Atkins. (Putnam, $27.) The latest crime novel featuring Sheriff Quinn Colson revolves around a high-end marijuana operation, Fannie Hathcock’s thriving strip joint/brothel and a crooked trucking outfit based in Tupelo, Miss., that cons drivers into hauling stolen goods across state lines into Louisiana, a land of lush landscapes and exotic place names like Turtle Bayou, Lake Charles, Breaux Bridge, the Atchafalaya River. “If you’re a romantic,” Marilyn Stasio writes in her crime column, “just reading these luscious names can make you smell the wisteria, feel the breeze and melt into the scenery.”
