The Broken Places

The Broken Places Review

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 straight 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.

  • Magdalena aka A Bookaholic Swede

    As usual, when it comes to me did I start off this series by reading (or listening in this case) not from the start. Instead, I started with book five, The Redeemers. I liked so much that I went back ...

    I would give this 4.5 stars if Goodreads would allow me. Sheriff Quinn Colson has his hands full with escaped prisoners, a perhaps reformed murderer being released from prison, shagging his ex-girl fr...

    I'm going to say this again...these aren't really the "type" of books I usually care for. Quinn's story(ies) are very, very interesting. the books are very, very well written (and now I'm reminded of ...

  • Barry

    Ace Atkins is a good solid writer and The Broken Places was a good solid read. It wasn't brilliantly written but it was, indeed, quite well done and it maintained my occasionally fleeting interest thr...
