Now that Vachss' Burke series has finished (Boo, Hiss) he's gone back to Cross, who Vachss fans will know from pieces in the two short-story collections.
Blackjack is a novel in its own right, but does take significant lumps from those short stories. You won't feel short-changed if you've got them all, but there are bits where you think "I've read this before".
Good stuff though, as always with Vachss.
