Don't Let the Devil Ride Hardback

Hardback

Description

'An instant Southern noir classic' S.A. Cosby'Full of wily humour and epic bad behavior, this is an ebullient, rollicking ride you don't dare miss' Megan AbbottHell is empty... and Addison McKellar's husband is missing. Addison McKellar isn't clueless - she knows she and her husband Dean don't have the perfect marriage - but she's still shocked when he completely vanishes from her life.

At first Addison is annoyed, but as days stretch into a week and she's repeatedly stonewalled by Dean's friends and associates, her frustration turns into genuine alarm.

When even the police seem dismissive of her concerns, Addison turns to her father's old friend, legendary Memphis PI Porter Hayes. Porter and Addison begin to dig deeper into Dean's affairs and quickly discover that he was never the hardworking business owner and family man he pretended to be.

As they piece together the connections between a hook-handed mercenary, one of Elvis's former leading ladies, and a man posing as an FBI agent, it becomes clear that Dean was deeply enmeshed in a high-stakes web of international intrigue, and Porter and Addison aren't the only ones looking for him. Dean angered some very dangerous people before he disappeared - people who have already killed to get what they want - and they won't hesitate to come after his family to even the score. Don't Let the Devil Ride is a thrilling adventure about what can happen when you pull back the curtain on your life.

Ace Atkins, long known for gritty Southern noir with a witty edge, has crafted an ambitious, globe-hopping story that comes home to Memphis in explosive fashion.
