Ace Atkins will be on Thacker Mountain Radio to read and sign copies of Infamous.

Our friend Ace Atkins (fresh off an Edgar Award nomination for best short story) returns with a rollicking romp through 1930s middle America in his latest book of historical crime fiction, Infamous. George "Machine Gun" Kelly and his wife Kathryn concoct a plot to kidnap a wealthy oilman in hopes of collecting a hefty ransom and finally achieving the easy life. But, of course, disaster ensues when family and old criminal "friends" turn up to complicate matters. We tear across the country with George and Kit trying to stay one step ahead of the feds hot on their trail, all the while wondering just who can be trusted. Meticulously researched and filled with memorable characters, Ace Atkins has delivered again.
