Ace Atkins is the New York Times bestselling author of the Quinn Colson novels, the first two of which--The Ranger and The Lost Ones--were nominated for the Edgar Award for Best Novel (he also has a third Edgar nomination for his short story, "Last Fair Deal Gone Down"). In addition, he is the author of several New York Times bestselling novels in the continuation of Robert B. Parker's Spenser series. Before turning to fiction, he was a correspondent for the St. Petersburg Times, a crime reporter for the Tampa Tribune, and, in college, played defensive end for the undefeated Auburn University football team (for which he was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated). He lives in Oxford, Mississippi.
Praise for Wicked City "Atkins is a proud torch-bearer of a literary tradition that includes William Faulkner--but there's nothing derivative about this novel, only emergence of a great new voice in American fiction."--Chicago Sun-Times "Gritty, well-plotted, fascinating...Atkins' unflinching storytelling echoes the best of James Ellroy and James Crunley."--South Florida Sun-Sentinel "A hot read that's got adroit reportage in the right places--and juicy pulp in the better places."--San Francisco Chronicle "Wicked City is Ace Atkins' best novel."--The Washington Post
