The Heathens (A Quinn Colson Novel Book 11) By Ace Atkins


You aced it Mr. Atkins! I enjoyed this one the most in the Quinn series. Keep them all coming. Thank you for the entertainment. The Heathens (A Quinn Colson Novel Book 11) This latest effort by the author is not as intense his previous one. He is rebuilding the corrupt scheming underworld of Tibbehah County after its spectacular crash in the last novel. Johnny Stagg is back along with a few other sleazy characters. The book centers on a teenage girl running from the law after a gruesome murder. Quinn and Lillie are in pursuit but are not the main protagonists. The story moves along well with plenty of action and plot twists. The language, while still vulgar in places, is subdued compared to previous books. I enjoyed the read and look forward to the next challenge that Quinn will face. The Heathens (A Quinn Colson Novel Book 11) I give this ** as I do when I keep reading in hopes it'll bet better but it doesn't. I've read his other books with this hero and don't remember anything like this. Plot is muddled and unorganized, the action is very slow, and worst of all the cornpone slapstick 'Southern' dialogue is awful, pages full. Maybe it's supposed to be dark satire but it's mostly just obscene. Awful book, I suspect someone else wrote this book. The Heathens (A Quinn Colson Novel Book 11) Loved the book. Never disappointed. Can’t wait for the next one. The Heathens (A Quinn Colson Novel Book 11)

I was sorry I purchased the last one also, to my own like and dislikes I thought maybe just maybe this one would be good, but ,no, so my bad. The Heathens (A Quinn Colson Novel Book 11) Once you start reading a Quinn Colson/Ace Atkins novel, you cannot put it down. I have read all if the Quinn Colson novels.
I am convinced Ace used a ghost writer for this particular book.
Very predictable and poorly written.
I hope the next Quinn Colson novel will revert to the real author. The Heathens (A Quinn Colson Novel Book 11) This book is a straight up rip off of the Legend of Billie Jean, a movie from the 80’s. Some of it is blatant: a little brother on the run with her, money is owed, cutting off her hair, getting media attention, teenagers helping her along the way, the friend who helps with her image, even the t shirts being sold. Yes, it adds in a whole lot drama and the evil vertically challenged father and son. The way that Johnny Stagg got involved was confusing and it didn’t seem like even he would unleash those men on anyone.

I have been enjoying these books, and until this one, I thought that the story lines were good, even if some characters are lacking. We could have seen between Jason the father and Jean. Caddy moves to Austin with a hint that her father has something to do either it but no real explanation. Lillie is always on surface as well; it seemed like she loved Quinn but that went away. There were early references to her being a lesbian, again never explored.

The language goes overboard on the colorful side on occasion. I have known law enforcement all my life and I lived in a small town in the south. I have never heard women talk this way about themselves or anyone else. It feels a little surreal and not sure what kind of research the author might have done. But maybe there is such a place in Louisiana?

I am disappointed for the first time in this series, but will probably buy the next book in the series. The Heathens (A Quinn Colson Novel Book 11) The novels of Ace Atkins read as fast for me as those of Michael Connelly and C.J. Box.
