Description :  <b>Boston PI Spenser faces a hot case and a personal crisis in this adventure in Ace Atkins’ iconic <i>New York Times&#xa0;</i>bestselling series.<br /></b><br />The fire at a boarded-up Catholic church raged hot and fast, lighting up Boston’s South End and killing three firefighters who were trapped in the inferno. A year later, as the city prepares to honor their sacrifice, there are still no answers about how the deadly fire started. Most at the department believe it was just a simple accident: faulty wiring in a century-old building. But Boston firefighter Jack McGee, who lost his best friend in the blaze, suspects arson. <br /><br />McGee is convinced department investigators aren’t sufficiently connected to the city’s lowlifes to get a handle on who's behind the blaze—so he takes the case to Spenser. Spenser quickly learns not only that McGee might be right, but that the fire might be linked to a rash of new arsons, spreading through the city, burning faster and hotter every night. Spenser follows the trail of fires to Boston’s underworld, bringing him, his trusted ally Hawk, and his apprentice Sixkill toe-to-toe with a dangerous new enemy who wants Spenser dead, and doesn’t play by the city’s old rules. Spenser has to find the firebug before he kills again—and stay alive himself.

Description :  <b>From “one of crime fiction’s most interesting and passionate voices” (Laura Lippman) comes a new “noir crime classic” (<i>Mystery Ink</i>) about one of the most notorious towns in American history.</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Reviewing <i>White Shadow</i>, the Associated Press wrote, “This book packs the emotional wallop of Dennis Lehane’s <i>Mystic River</i>. It is as gritty as James Ellroy’s <i>L.A. Confidential</i>. And yet, the prose is as lyrical as James Lee Burke’s <i>Crusader’s Cross</i>. With <i>White Shadow</i>, Atkins has found his true voice.” And with <i>Phenix City</i>, it is even truer.<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; In 1955, <i>Look</i> magazine called Phenix City, Alabama, “The Wickedest City in America,” but even that may have been an understatement. It was a stew of organized crime and corruption, run by a machine that dealt with complaints forcefully and with dispatch. Noone dared cross them – noone even tried. And then the machine killed the wrong man.<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; When crime-fighting attorney Albert Patterson is gunned down in a Phenix City alley in the spring of 1954, the entire town seems to pause for just a moment – and when it starts up again, there is something different about it. A small group of men meet and decide they have had enough, but what that means and where it will take them is something they could not have foreseen. Over the course of the next several months, lives will change, people die, and unexpected heroes emerge – like “a Randolph Scott western,” one of them remarks, “played out not with horses and Winchesters, but with Chevys and .38s and switchblades.” <br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Peopled by an extraordinary cast of characters, both real and fictional, <i>Wicked City</i> is a novel of uncommon intensity, rich with atmosphere, filled with sensuality and surprise.
