Hard Candy

Hard Candy

Andrew Vachss


during this mercilessly compelling mystery, Burke—the deepest eye, sting artist, and low hit guy who metes out a cruelly inventive vengeance on those that victimize children—is up opposed to a soft-spoken messiah, who could be rescuing runaways or recruiting them for his personal hideous reasons. yet in doing so Burke turns into a goal for a whole Mafia kinfolk, a whore with a middle of cyanide, and a freelance killer as implacable as a heat-seeking missile. Written with Vachss's signature narrative overdrive—and his unnerving familiarity with the sub-basement of yank crime—Hard Candy is classic Burke.
