it was ok
bookshelves: black-as-noir

I am a fan of Vachss writing, especially the Burke series; there have been so many gritty, suspenseful outings. This, unfortunately, isn't one of them. A lot of 'telling' instead of 'showing' in a story digging into the reason why a serial rapist is being protected by the feds.
I had trouble with the dialogue. Vachss has all the characters (except for Max obviously) constantly interrupting each other or finishing someone else's thoughts. It can be a useful device but it is employed to distration here.
