Ace Atkins is the author of eleven novels, including Robert B. Parker's Lullaby and The Lost Ones, both out from G.P. Putnam’s Sons. A former journalist who cut his teeth as a crime reporter in the newsroom of The Tampa Tribune, he published his first novel, Crossroad Blues, at 27 and became a full-time novelist at 30. In 2011, he was selected by the Robert B. Parker estate to continue the bestselling adventures of Boston’s iconic private eye, Spenser. Ace lives on a historic farm outside Oxford, Mississippi with his family. Lately, he’s also been spending a lot of time in Boston, much of it at the corner of Berkeley and Boylston.
