The Broken Places by Ace Atkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A year after becoming sheriff, Quinn Colson is faced with the release of an infamous murderer from prison. Jamey Dixon comes back to Jericho preaching redemption, and some believe him; but for the victim’s family, the only thought is revenge.

Another group who doesn’t believe him—the men in prison from Dixon’s last job, an armored car robbery. They’re sure he’s gone back to grab the hidden money, so they do the only thing they can: break out and head straight to Jericho themselves.

Colson and his deputy, Lillie, know they’ve got their work cut out for them. But they don’t count on one more unwelcome visitor: a tornado that causes havoc just as events come to a head. Communications are down, the roads are impassable—and the rule of law is just about to snap.


As usual, when it comes to me did I start off this series by reading (or listening in this case) not from the start. Instead, I started with book five, The Redeemers. I liked so much that I went back and listen to this book three and four and now I just wait for the right moment to reading book one and two. Yeah, why read the books in order when you can have this much fun? Anyway, what I want to say is that the books can be read as stand-alone, sure reading from the beginning straight through will definitely be a lot easier if you want to keep track of all the characters that are recurring in the books.

In this book must Quinn deal with a problem close to him. His sister is dating, Jamey Dixon, an ex-convict. A man convicted of killing his girlfriend, however, this said man has now found God and have started a new life. If only Quinn could believe that and if only then men that have just escaped from prison isn't thinking that Jamey Dixon may have cheated them out of the money they went to prison for. Then, there is the tornado heading towards Jericho...

As with the rest of the books, I have read is the story captivating and I just love how the book is non-stop action from the beginning until the end with killers, robbers, and tornadoes all coming to Jericho. It's a great book in a great series and if you are a Longmire fan, then you need to read this series!
