I also started reading this author after Parker died and he started writing the Spenser novels. I've liked every book of his I've read. Corruption in a small town.

I started reading Ace Atkins' novels after he partnered with the late Robert B. Parker's characters in two new mysteries. Ranger contains echoes of William Faulkner's Mississippi caricatures and plotting, but Atkins makes it easy to get involved with Quinn, Lillie, Jean, Boom and Lena and to want to know what happens next. I'm looking forward to reading more of Atkins' work.

Good beginning for this new series. The small town Mississippi setting is certainly less than idlyic and the characters are not quite as stereotypical as they first appear. Look forward to the next book to see how things develop.

Atkins has written some interesting books, but this novel is disappointing, little more than a Hollywood-ready good old boy action story.
