Tough, Raw, Exciting, and with a Great Ending
Vachss's book Burke novels are always about the dark part of the streets with all its grime, shadows, smells, and bare reality that few novelists have the courage or knowledge to write about. It is a world full of greys and outside the radar. The novels are fun thriller/mysteries but made only for those that don't mind the dirt of reality served with thier thrills.
The one thing bad about all Burke books is that they never go in a straight line so it can be difficult to those with a bit of ADD. Vachss likes to constantly be going off on side stories, explanations, and background which makes it very difficult for me to read. The good news is that this is not as aggrivating when your are listening to the stories.
The reader for this series is excellent. All the Burke novels are highly recommended and unlike any other. If you like your vision to teach you something and see things in a new light (even if messes with how you want to see the world), not just take you on a ride then you can miss with anything at Audiobooks by Vachss.

What! No Phil Gigante, I tried to listen to 2 chapters. It was so slow tempo and simply a rip off. Mr Wirth is no doubt an excellent narrator. His Burke, Prof, mama, and Clarence weren't on point. Didn't get to hear Michelle, and Mole, but I was done as soon as Mr. Wirth spoke as Burke. Then the horrible Prof, I returned the book.. Again no disrespect intended to Mr. Wirth, just so used to Mr. Gigante and how far he took all of the characters in the series...
