Excellent entry in the Burke series.

Not very well-written. The plot is choppy and not very compelling. It does, however, have a surprising twist at the end.

Gave to free library.

I thought this could have been a very good story but Vachss writing style was not up to his past standards here.
The dialog, which is usually some of the best parts of the Burke books, had far too many unfinished sentences often confusing the situation being discussed.
The ending was also the weakest so far in the Burke series.
Hoping this was just a 'bad-day' for Vachss.

Overall another good story, I just wish they'd get to finish more sentences.
