With the Prof clinging to life in an underground hospital facility, a man named Pryce shows up to make Burke an offer: professional care for the Prof and a clean slate for everyone in his family in return for Burke's services. Even though Pryce is a merciless man, never to be completely trusted, Burke knows he has only one choice, so he takes the job.

Pryce tells Burke about a Saudi prince that liked to take his two-year-old son out with him during his sexual exploits in the seedier parts of the city. Then the son was kidnapped, right out from under the prince's grimy hands. The job was professionally done; the leads aren't cold; they're dead. If word were to get out, the prince would be disgraced and the U.S. would lose a valuable business partner. But Burke isn't in it for the prince, Pryce, or the political brass that stand to be tarnished by one man's despicable behavior. He is in it for himself, his family, and a child he hopes to save.

To find the child Burke must walk deep into an international terrorist network and use some of the oldest connections of his long career, because after this job there is a new life awaiting him, and it looks like he is going to try and get it. Download and start listening now!

    " Another Life (Burke #18) by Andrew Vachss (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard)(fiction - mystery)is another better Burke novel. A Saudi prince aged two is kidnapped from his father's side - and Burke can't figure out who kidnapped the child or why. Things might not be as they appear in Burke's world. A side story which opened the book involved the Prophet being terribly wounded in a shooting and esconsed in a private off-the-books medical facility. Another side story represents the first time someone (Clarence) voluntarily left the family on good terms and still alive! 6.8/10, finished 6/15/11. "

    " In the final novel of the Burke series, Andrew Vachss falls a little short. I had hoped Burke, a quintessential conflicted anti-hero, would go out with a bang... not a whimper. However, Vachss delivers a solid finale. It's well worth the read simply to be able to say goodbye to all of the characters you've grown to love over all these years. "

    " The end of an era but maybe that is okay. "

    " Vacchs has some great one-liners and knows how to turn a phrase, but unfortunately these strengths are unable to mask the fact that this book is damn near unreadable. The excessive topical references and soon-to-be-outdated tech-savvy will forever freeze "Another Life" in 2008. Disappointing. "
