Burke, ex-con, mercenary, and rumored hit man, makes his living by preying on New York’s most vicious predators and occasionally avenging their innocent victims. But in Andrew Vachss’s mercilessly suspenseful new novel, Burke fnds himself working the other side of the street, where guilt and innocence are as disposable as the sheets in a Times Square hotel . . . and as dirty. Burke’s new employer is Kite, a fanatical crusader who specializes in debunking “false allegations” of child sexual abuse. Kite has a case that may be the real thing, but needs Burke to tell him if it is. And if mere money can’t persuade Burke to cooperate, Kite has plenty of other incentives at his disposal, including an over-zealous bodyguard with a taste for corsets and brass knuckles. A tour guide to hell written in icy prose, False Allegations is Vachss at his most unnerving. “Burke is the toughest talking frst-person narrator since Mike Hammer.” — Los Angeles Times “Vachss . . . writes hypnotically violent prose.” — Chicago Sun-Times Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alan | 7/13/2013

    " Burke is just not enough of an interesting character and/or Vachss is not a good enough writer to make this, or the other Burke novels, any more than ok. Not recommended unless you're desperate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tery Lambertt | 2/2/2013

    " I loved this book because I have a strong interest in psychology, specifically the effect of trauma so this book was right up my ally. Yet, for the general population I think it might be boring and the ending was not good at all! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 1/16/2013

    " This was my least favorite Burke book so far. It was like some psych training manual. Not enough of the rest of the crew. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 2/11/2012

    " The expositions about child abuse were informative, but by the time this one ended I no longer knew who was trying to prove what. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jack | 11/22/2011

    " Even weirder and preachier than usual. This is probably the last Vachss book I'll pick up for a while. "
