"Red-hot and serious as a punctured lung."
""Dead and Gone" opens enough narrative veins--and introduces enough colorful new characters--to insure that Burke will live on as one of contemporary crime fiction's most durable creations."
--"New York Post"
From the Inside Flap
From the modern master of noir, Andrew Vachss, comes this heart-topping and bestselling new thriller that completely reinvents the Burke series.
Urban Outlaw Burke barely survives an attack by a professional hit squad that kills his partner. With a new face, Burke goes into hiding. And on the hunt. Dead and Gone takes him from the streets of New York City through a cross-country underground, and deep into his own tortured past. The violent journey ends in a place that exists only in the dreams of the darkest degenerates on earth.

Vachss' style can't be everyone's favourite, or he would be top of the best-seller lists. But I for one rate his books as one of the things that make life worth living.
I think I've lost the faith with this one - won't be coming back for more...
Reading an Andrew Vachss book is to race through a tunnel at top speed, briefly catching sight of stops only to be hurtled on to the next. With tense jolts Vachss drives us relentlessly through every intersection & offers us panting station halts for memories long since forgotten; or hoped so. There is a lean & hungry feel to Vachss' writing & yet, for the first time, I note a bubbling up of humor. A thrilling & unput-downable adventure!
If you haven't read any of Andrew Vachss' hair-raising philosophical thrillers I do encourage you to do so.
