I enjoyed his first Quinn Colson novel, The Ranger, so much I couldn't wait to read The Lost Ones.
Atkins' fictional Tibbehah County, Mississippi setting is so very much like the North Louisiana and Alabama counties where I've lived. Pine forests, and farms. Populated with the same good ole boys I've known for so long. Seems like home.
And I loved the subtle humor and home spun wisdom in this story. Sounded like home too.
