Book Recommendation: The Innocents by Ace Atkins

 

The Innocents (2016) is volume number six of the crime thrillers featuring former army ranger and former sheriff Quinn Colson in his hometown of Jericho, Mississippi by The New York Times bestselling American author Ace Atkins. This is my first book by this author and I plan to read more of his novels.

Goodreads Review of The Innocents

"She was just seventeen, a high school dropout named Milly Jones, found walking down the middle of the highway, engulfed in flames. Even in a tough Mississippi county like Tibbehah, it shatters the community, and it is up to Sheriff Quinn Colson, back on the job after a year away, and his deputy Lillie Virgil, to investigate what happened and why. Before long, however, accusations start to fly, national media and federal authorities descend, and what seemed like a senseless act of violence begins to appear like something even more disturbing—with more victims waiting in the shadows. "

Sounds like an interesting book, Roy. This was an unknown author for me, and I'm glad to read that it was your first as well.... and that I wasn't the only one who was not au courant!

Netflix has a series titled, "The Innocents."  I'm wondering if it is associated with the book by the same name.
