Speaking and Signing

Robert B. Parker's Lullaby
The Lost Ones


We'll enjoy live music from Austin's own Jesse Sublett at this event, as well as refreshments courtesy of Saint Arnold Brewing Company.


When fourteen-year-old Mattie Sullivan asks Spenser to look into her mother’s murder, he’s not completely convinced by her claim that the police investigation four years ago was botched. Mattie is gruff, street-smart, and wise beyond her years, left to care for her younger siblings and an alcoholic grandmother in a dilapidated apartment in South Boston. Mattie believes the man convicted of the crime is innocent and points Spenser to the Southie toughs who she saw carrying her mother away hours before her murder. Neither the Boston PD nor the neighborhood thugs are keen on his dredging up the past, but as Spenser becomes more involved in the case, he starts to realize that Mattie may be onto something.

Ace Atkins is the author of eleven novels, including The Lost Ones and Lullaby, both out from G.P. Putnam’s Sons in May 2012. A former journalist who cut his teeth as a crime reporter in the newsroom of The Tampa Tribune, he published his first novel, Crossroad Blues, at 27 and became a full-time novelist at 30. Last year, he was selected by the Robert B. Parker estate to continue the bestselling adventures of Boston’s iconic private eye, Spenser.Ace lives on a historic farm outside Oxford, Mississippi with his family.
