Late one night, Michael spots a woman in a white Rolls-Royce throwing something into the river. Convinced that the woman is a perfect blackmail target, he attempts to recruit the others to search for her. But news that Brewster's library is slated for demolition turns this halfhearted effort into a serious mission to find the ultimate problem-solver: money, and with it a new home for Brewster's precious collection.
Each frantic knock opens another barred door as the building's destruction draws nearer. And the answers to each man's questions trigger shocking explosions that hit you with all the visceral power we have come to expect from this fierce and dynamic writer.
"Vachss's reverence for storytelling is evident in the blunt beauty of his language." (Chicago Sun-Times)

Andrew Vachss is the Man
This is a Andrew Vachss book so its got to be great. Luckily they also assign master readers to his books which only make them better.
This book has the feeling of his Burke series which he justed ended because a similar "family" of street people and one of them is a martial arts family. While the concept is familiar its a new story from a man who seen a lot and always has something to say. You can't go wrong with a Vachss novel. Its either good or great. This one isn't one of his best but still fun and with lots of meat to chew on between your ears.
