A year after becoming sheriff, Quinn Colson is faced with the release of an infamous murderer from prison. Jamey Dixon comes back to Jericho preaching redemption, and some believe him; but for the victim's family, the only thought is revenge. Another group who doesn't believe him -- the men in prison from Dixon's last job, an armored car robbery. They're sure he's gone back to grab the hidden money, so they do the only thing they can: break out and head to Jericho themselves. Colson and his deputy, Lillie, know they've got their work cut out for them. But they don't count on one more unwelcome visitor: a tornado that causes havoc just as events come to a head. Communications are down, the roads are impassable -- and the rule of law is just about to snap.

I only began reading Ace Atkins' Quinn Colson books because I like the way he writes the Spenser books now that Robert B Parker has passed. And I was pleasantly surprised as how good these are. The characters, their motivations, the storylines, it's all good. He's written a couple more of these than I have read, so I have more to enjoy without waiting for a publication date.

A realistic and very well done novel. I found the characters and story very credible.
