Ace Atkins
Murder By The Book, Saturday, May 10 at 4:30pm
Ace Atkins will sign and discuss Robert B. Parker's Cheap Shot (Putnam; 26.95). Ace Atkins is the author of eleven novels, including The lost ones and Lullaby, both out from G.P. Putnam’s Sons in May 2012. As a reporter, Ace earned a Pulitzer Prize nomination for a feature series based on his investigation into a forgotten murder of the 1950s. The story became the core of his critically acclaimed novel, White Shadow, which earned raves from noted authors and critics. The lost ones and The Ranger represent a return to Ace’s first love: hero-driven series fiction. Quinn Colson is a real hero—a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan—who returns home to north Mississippi to fight corruption on his home turf. The stories, contemporary tales with a dash of classic westerns and noir, are currently in development for a major television series. Ace lives on a historic farm outside Oxford, Mississippi with his family. Lately, he’s been spending a lot of time in Boston, much of it at the corner of Berkeley and Boylston.

MysteryPeople Presents


Ace Atkins

& more authors to be announced soon!

The only thing most crime fiction fans love as much as books is drinking, so it only makes sense that someone would combine both. Started in Philadelphia a few years, Noir At The Bar has made its way across the country from Philadelphia to LA. MysteryPeople is giving it an Austin spin on May 12th at Opal Divine's on South Congress.

We'll have a great line up of hard-boiled authors on the scene reading from and discussing their works, featuring Ace Atkins.

So come out to Opal's (3601 South Congress) at 7PM and help us celebrate a new tradition - Austin's Noir at the Bar.

Ace Atkins is the Edgar-nominated author of fifteen books, including the forthcoming Quinn Colson novel The Forsaken. Selected by the Robert B. Parker estate to continue the Spenser novels, he has also written Robert. B. Parker’s Lullaby and Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland, both of which were New York Times bestsellers. He lives in Oxford, Mississippi. In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.

Thank you for supporting Ace Atkins, MysteryPeople & your local independent bookstore!
