Robert Lamb

Author Robert Lambabout this book: A reporter and two cops look for a missing college girl. The search leads through the underbelly of urban Atlanta to murder and heartbreak.

As a reporter for The Atlanta Constitution, I covered many stories about life on the city's mean streets. I always knew I would some day write about it.

Readers Say:

• 'This haunting novel will keep you awake — reading it the first night, thinking about it afterwards.' — Richard Layman, author/publisher

• 'Reading Atlanta Blues was like watching a police cruiser scream down Peachtree, sirens blaring. A very nifty piece of storytelling.' — Jim Auchmutey, feature writer, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

• 'As a detective, I've worked murders, rapes, robberies, and kidnappings. Atlanta Blues gets at the very heart of what we do in a world the public seldom sees—and that many don't want to see.' — Walt Bales, investigator, former Officer of the Year, Columbia, S.C.

• 'One of the three best novels of the year by a Southern writer – and maybe the best!' — The Sumter Item, year-end roundup of books

• '[This novel] is almost Chandleresque in the way it explores the dark soul and swift undercurrents of the glittering hub of the New South.' — Mark A. Bradley, former CIA officer; author, A Very Principled Boy

• 'A cat-and-mouse thriller that blows Elmore Leonard out of the water and gives Joseph Wambaugh a tight run for the money.' — Wade Tabor, author, Miller's Rules and The Long-Range Plan
