MysteryPeople Presents: ACE ATKINS - The Redeemers
Thursday, July 23 at 7PM
Speaking & Signing
Ace Atkins has long been a MysteryPeople favorite (and a good friend of ours). We're so happy to welcome him to the store tonight with his latest novel, The Redeemers. Quinn Colson is back! Only in his early thirties, he finds himself jobless but not without a job to do: take down county kingpin Johnny Stagg's criminal operation for good. Join us for another exciting evening with one of our favorite authors for the release of an exciting new chapter in this thrilling series!
ABOUT THE REDEEMERS
He is only in his early thirties, but now Quinn Colson is jobless--voted out of office as sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi, thanks to the machinations of county kingpin Johnny Stagg. He has offers, in bigger and better places, but before he goes, he's got one more job to do--bring down Stagg's criminal operations for good.
At least that's the plan. But in the middle of the long, hot summer, a trio of criminals stage a bold, wall-smashing break-in at the home of a local lumber mill owner, making off with a million dollars in cash from his safe, which is curious, because the mill owner is wealthy--but not that wealthy. None of this has anything to do with Colson, but during the investigation, two men are killed, one of them the new sheriff. His friend, acting sheriff Lillie Virgil, and a dangerous former flame, Anna Lee Stevens, both ask him to step in, and reluctantly he does, only to discover that that safe contained more than just money--it held secrets.
Secrets that could either save Colson--or destroy him once and for all.
