Burke is one of the most cold-blooded yet strangely honorable heroes in the history of crime fction, an outlaw who makes his living by preying on the most vicious of New York City's bottom-feeders, those who thrive on the suffering of children.

In Andrew Vachss's tautly engrossing novel, Burke is given a purse full of dirty money to find the infamous Ghost Van that is cutting a lethal swath among the teenage prostitutes in the hood. He also gets help in the form of a stripper named Belle, whose moves on the runway are outclassed only by what she can do in a getaway car.

But not even Burke is prepared for the evil that is behind the Ghost Van or for the sheer menace of its guardian, a cadaverous karate expert who enjoys killing so much that he has named himself after death.

Listener Opinions

    " I love Andrew Vachss. Make no mistake, it's trashy, but it's fun as hell to read and filled with crazy almost comic-book scenes. I also like his general stance on the characters: tolerance for people of all types (one of the main characters in the series is a person who identifies as a female but is in a male's body), but none for the monsters of the world. "

    " So Sad:( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don | 2/12/2014

    " Not as good as the first 2 Vachss books, Blue Belle does keep you going with the Burke saga. However, it just was over the top with the sexuality and the overall plot. Hopefully, the next in the series will be a touch better like Flood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey Stott | 1/19/2014

    " Could not put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jimmy | 12/31/2013

    " I felt that this book had a really weak ending after a long build up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 12/30/2013

    " My favorite of the Burke series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marius van Blerck | 12/9/2013

    " A superb thriller, marred only by the most deeply irritating female lead since Madame Bovary. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karl | 10/24/2013

    " Belle is a curvy sensuous client. And Burke will never be the same after she finishes with him. One of the best book series that I have ever read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dr Edward Diesel | 8/14/2013

    " One of the best in the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raegan Butcher | 7/30/2013

    " Third book in the excellent Burke series by Andrew Vachss. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 6/26/2013

    " Vachss' books are dark and dirty, slightly similar in style to James Lee Burke. I'll read another! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ramzi | 2/24/2013

    " The weakest entry into the Burke series thus far. I wasn't into the relationship Burke formed with Belle and unfortunately, there were lots of pages devoted to that. It had an interesting villain with Mortay but limited our exposure to Max The Silent, the series' most engrossing character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/4/2012

    " Was I the only one who thought Belle was a total nutjob? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 9/1/2012

    " Finally the last book in the series that I had yet to read. One of the better ones as it is an early one and the story w/ Burke and co. gets filled in more. Another fast and loose read w/ energy and literally explosive endings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 4/2/2012

    " This was actually the first Burke novel I read and I instantly fell in love. It helps to read the series in order but this is one of the best stories in the series. "
