I wasn't much of a mystery reader until I read Ace Atkins!
Quinn Colson is a such a great character-- equal parts John Wayne, Elvis, and Clint Eastwood-- but it's the supporting cast that really brings his books to life.
Gritty and violent, but also charming, the Quinn Colson books are must-reads for fans of the genre.
