Burke's newest client is a woman named Flood, who has the face of an angel, the body of a high-priced stripper, and the skills of a professional executioner. She wants Burke to find a monster for her - so she can kill him with her bare hands. In this thriller, Andrew Vachss's renegade private eye teams up with a lethally gifted avenger to follow a child's murderer through the catacombs of New York, where every alley is blind and the penthouses are as dangerous as the basements.
Fearfully knowing, crackling with narrative tension, and written in prose as forceful as a hollow-point slug, Flood is Burke at his deadliest - and Vachss at the peak of his form.

Pretty good - I will try some more of the series.
I like the various mix of characters and hope to see more of them. Didn't really like the standard (in too many series) description of the amazing martial artist that apparently live only to assist the main character - also pretty predictable group of bad guys - but remember this was written before so many used the same computer (confused also with telecom) genius living deep in the ground. And the poor dog never got any exercise so how could he stay in shape. But what the heck this is fiction and once I got into the first few chapters I didn't stop till it was done. So I liked it a lot, warts and all.
I loved the change in voice for mama! Sounds like a lot of my friends from years gone by. good voices changes without making me forget the story.
Yes - most likely will listen to it again in a few years.
This is a great book!
