Ace Atkins is the New York Times-bestselling author of more than a dozen novels. A former journalist who cut his teeth as a crime reporter in the newsroom of The Tampa Tribune, he published his first novel at twenty-seven, and became a full-time novelist at thirty. In addition to earning numerous awards, Ace was selected by the Robert B. Parker estate to continue the bestselling adventures of Boston’s iconic private eye, Spenser. 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 inspired his critically acclaimed novel White Shadow.
