The Innocents by Ace Atkins is the sixth installment in The Ranger series. The series follows Quinn Colson, an Army Ranger who came back to his home in Mississippi and becomes the Sheriff.

The Innocents by Ace Atkins is a great addition to this series, which is quickly becoming my favorite. Mr. Atkins, again, creates a world with wonderful, colorful and interesting characters.

What I truly enjoy in this series is that some of the people in it cannot keep on the straight and narrow path no matter what happens. I noticed that in The Ranger series the main crime happens usually a good one-third in and the ending sets the stage for the next book.

While the series is called “The Ranger” and there is a protagonist, the real star of these books is the town and those who occupy it. I find myself being interested in many of them and wanting to know more about each individual – scumbags included.

Unlike the other books, you have to have some background information on the charcters, I guess that’s expected in such a series where you are invested in their lives. I would recommend to read at least one previous novel before picking it up.


Milly Jones was found walking down the highway in Tebbehah County engulfed in flames. Quinn Colson and his deputy, Lillie Virgil, are trying to solve this mystery.

Not helping law enforcement, the crime is being sensationalized and gets national attention.
