Review:

Sure to be a book of the year. (Lee Child)

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

About the Author:

Ace Atkins, an Alabama native, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 2001 while at the Tampa Tribune for his investigation of the real-life murders of Charlie Wall and others in 1950s Tampa. He is the author of four Nick Travers novels- Crossroad Blues, Leavin' Trunk Blues, Dark End of the Street, and Dirty South. And, yes, Ace is his real name.
