"Powerful... mesmerizing in its intensity."- Los Angeles Times
"Vaschss's writing is as gritty as ever... It's doubtful there's another fictional private eye who can summon up in the reader as powerful—and powerfully conflicting—emotions as Burke can."-Newsday
"Vachss is a contemporary master... Decidedly hard-boiled, his prose is as lean, tough-edged and brittle as the man who is his protagonist."- The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"A harrowing tale in which outcasts are the moral heroes and the people who belong to civilization are corrupt... An absolute original... Andrew Vachss has become a cult favorite, and for good reason."- Cosmopolitan
