Review

"The hardest-boiled crime fiction this side of Sing Sing."
--"USA Today"

"Many writers try to cover the same ground as Vachss. A handful are as good. None are better."
--"People"

"Vachss is red hot and as serious as a punctured lung."
--"Playboy"

"[Vachss writes] some of the cleanest, meanest, stripped-down-and-sparkling prose ever penned."
--"The Austin Chronicle"

"Vachss's writing is like a dark roller-coaster ride of fear, love, and hate."
--New Orleans "Times-Picayune"

"There's no way to put a [Vachss book] down once you've begun."
--"Detroit Free Press"

"Andrew Vachss is a contemporary master."
--"The Atlanta Journal-Constitution"


"From the Hardcover edition."

"Vachss conveys his protagonist's reality in and out of prison in a knowing manner. Along the way, he creates sympathy for a criminal whose code of honor, and whose survival, turns out to be a work in progress." --"The Wall Street Journal"

"Sugar and Rena are a canny, lethal team that bears watching in the hopes they become future players in Vachss's ever-growing arsenal of tarnished, avenging angels." --"Los Angeles Times"

"Rippling with the whip-smart dialogue we have come to expect from Vachss, this is yet another classic from the master." --"Irish Independent
"
"The prose is red-hot, mean, stripped down, and sometimes, just plain serious." --"San Francisco Book Review"

"Few plumb the . . . integrity of the 'honorable' criminal mind like Vachss. [These] brutal insights provide only the lexicon for what is really a battered and bruised romance--a salvation . . . for those who shoulder life's true weight."--"Winnipeg Free Press"

"Damn scary. Vachss' fans will not be disappointed." --"Booklist"
