After years of carefully working the edges, a blood-commitment forces Burke''s return to his former career: "violence-for-money." Claw, once the shot-caller of a white supremacist prison gang is free . . . and terminally ill--he desperately needs a pile of cash to bet on a long-shot cure. He tells Burke about a punk who once purchased protection from him, a man who claims to know the truth behind a "cold case, " the unsolved rape-murder of a thirteen-year-old girl. The killers are all weathly men today, ideal blackmail marks. But wealth is power, and the informant needs Claw''s protection again. Burke decides to roll the dice. A win would give Burke the two things he lives for: Money and Revenge. A loss would turn "terminal" from a diagnosis into a certainly, and not just for Claw.
Author Bio
Andrew Vachss
Andrew Vachss, an attorney specializing in juvenile justice and child abuse, has written many novels featuring social vigilante, Burke, a man with a mission to put away child molesters for good. Like his ex-con hero, Vachss (pronounced "Vax") is a social crusader for the protection of children. He graduated from case Western in 1965 with a B.A. and from The New England School of Law in 1975 with a J.D. He began his first novel in 1983 when he realized the difficulties of making a living as a lawyer representing abused children. For years, Vachss wrote ideas for characters, themes, and plots on index cards, and when he finally felt he had accumulated enough, he wrote his debut novel, FLOOD. Since then, Vachss has continued his two-pronged attack against molesters, fighting in both the courtroom and on the pages of his best-selling mysteries. He has also founded "Don't! Buy! Thai!", an organization protesting child prostitution and calling for a boycott of all products from Thailand. Vachss is the author of several comic book series (some original stories, some based on his own voluminous collection of short stories) and his nonfiction has been published in numerous national publications.
