by | Read by David Joe Wirth

Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

This would make an excellent short story--too bad it's a full novel. David Joe Wirth reads with gritted teeth as befits the story of tough-guy Burke, who moves in a world of tough guys. Even the dogs are tough. And there's no relief in this relentless book. Wirth never lets listeners forget the underlying pain. The story of a terminally ill con looking for a final score could be told quickly, but half the book is filler. Vachss shifts time and place without warning. Tangents go nowhere and confuse a complex plot. Fans will recognize Vachss's obsession with exposing crimes against children. But the crimes are so graphically detailed that you'll need a shower and a stiff drink after listening. M.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
