Interview With New York Times Bestselling Author Ace Atkins

Tune in to KAZI Book Review Sunday, July 19 at 12:30 p.m. CST/1:30 p.m. EST for my interview with Ace Atkins, author of the new novels THE REDEEMER and ROBERT B. PARKER’S KICKBACK.

THE REDEEMER is Atkins’s fifth crime fiction novel featuring Quinn Colson, a former Army Ranger now serving as the Tibbeha County, Mississippi sheriff.   At the beginning of the novel we learn that Colson, who is only in his early thirties, will soon be jobless—voted out of office as sheriff, 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.

ROBERT B. PARKER’S KICKBACK is Atkins fourth novel featuring Boston P.I. Spenser, and the 44th in the series started by the late Robert B. Parker in 1973.    In KICKBACK, Spenser investigates why seventeen-year-old Dillon Yates was sent to a lockdown juvenile facility in Boston Harbor for setting up a prank Twitter account for his vice principal.  This is Blackburn, Massachusetts, where zero tolerance for minors is a way of life.

Leading the movement is tough-as-nails Judge Joe Scali, who gives speeches about getting tough on today’s wild youth. But Dillon’s mother, who knows other Blackburn kids who are doing hard time for minor infractions, isn’t buying Scali’s line. She hires Spenser to find the truth behind the draconian sentencing.

Ace Atkins, a former journalist, is the New York Times bestselling author of 17 novels.
