Pat Anderson has a review of Ace Atkins's new book, Dirty South, in today's Washington Post. He didn't like it as much as I did, but he still has some good things to say about it. I think Ace is one of the better writers to come along in the past few years -- and one of the few writers of Southern mysteries that I really enjoy. I especially recommend his Dark End of the Street, which was short-listed for a Gumshoe Award. (See Yvette Banek's review of Dark End on Mystery Ink. Her review of Dirty South is here.)
