Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Apparently, noted author Andrew Vachss is intent on moving on to another life. He has announced that this is the last of the Burke series, which he started in 1985 and which created Burke (no first name) and his "family of choice," a band of adventurous oddballs, heroes, and antiheroes. In this supposed finale, Christopher Lane seems to know he's got to deliver a masterful performance. Lane's Burke is tough, terse, and hard-core. Yet Lane gives the listener a glimpse of the sentimental Burke, who in this case is on a mission for his critically ill friend, "the Prof." Each of the family's characters is a virtuoso performance for Lane. Where this thriller goes and how it concludes remains a mystery until Lane capably deals it out to you, piece by piece. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
