Admirers of Ace Atkins are grateful that he has been working overtime. Every year since 2012, he has gifted us with not only a new installment of his riveting Deep South Quinn Colson series; he's also serving double duty as the new keeper of Robert B. Parker's beloved Spenser series. The Forsaken, the latest Quinn Colson entry, evidences no sign of creative slackening. In it, he spins a jarring tale about a nameless black man who wanders into a small Mississippi town and, less than two days later, is lynched for a rape and murder that he didn't commit. Thirty-six years later, county sheriff Colson attempts to both identify the hapless victim and track down the true culprit of the crime, but for some townspeople, that long ago event is a dead issue still worth killing for.
