Top Customer Reviews
collection of crime and suspense shorts by Andrew Vachss is
one of the best collections I've read. Every one tight and
gripping, not a word is wasted. Shocking and chilling, the
subjects vary from dog fights and getting inside the mind of
a psychopath to standard, hard-hitting crime pulp. The title
story alone is worth the price of admission. These stories
were also illustrated in _Hard Looks_. Includes some Burke
and Cross stories, and Vachss's vision of a horrific future,
"Underground." I can't recommend a book more highly,
especially as an introduction to the no-holds-barred world
of Andrew Vachss.

Vachs' writing is very lean. His prose is direct and simple, which makes the rare occasion when he uses a colorful or abstract turn of phrase that much more noticeable. Read morePublished on April 26, 2011 by Neophyle
