About the Author

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.

Reviews

Praise for White Shadow

"A mesmerizing read. With wonderful detail of character and history, this novel is a tour de force from one of the best crime writers at work today."--Michael Connelly

"Ace Atkins makes 1950s Florida as cool and hip as tomorrow in this outstanding novel. It's a stunning achievement and sure to be a book of the year."--Lee Child

"A rich, powerful novel that is to south Florida what James Ellroy's L.A. Confidential is to Los Angeles."--Robert Crais

"Classic Florida noir, a great crime novel set in the fabulously crime-ridden '50s. Ace Atkins has done a superb job of re-creating old Tampa, a place whose underworld was as dangerous and debauched as Chicago's in its prime."--Carl Hiaasen

"A wild ride. This is a big-time crime novel crammed with violence, sex and some pretty good riting that makes it hard to put down."--Kirkus Reviews

"Too often, historical mysteries are more history than mystery, but Atkins does a fine job of giving us a richly detailed portrait of a fascinating time and place without ever losing the compelling forward thrust of a taut and suspenseful tale."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
