In this mercilessly compelling thriller, Burke - the private eye, sting artist, and occasional hit man who metes out a cruelly ingenious vengeance on those who victimize children - is up against a soft-spoken messiah who may be rescuing runaways or recruiting them for his own hideous purposes. But in doing so, Burke becomes a target for an entire Mafia family, a whore with a heart of cyanide, and a contract killer as implacable as a heart-seeking missile. Written with Vachss' signature narrative overdrive - and with his unnerving familiarity with the sub-basement of American crime - Hard Candy is vintage Burke.

    " Burke's past comes back to grab him and put him in a position where he might not survive. No-one survives head-to-head with Wesley. Can Burke? Well, there is a next book! But getting there with him is why we read! One of the best book series that I have ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorilee | 7/29/2013

    " I enjoy these books, I think because of Max. They are gritty and right up to my limit with the violence and descriptions of what happens to children. "

    " Vachss has a very unique writing style, you will not mistake his books for anyone else! "

    " Poor, poor Burke. Love an author who can make you root for the "bad" guys. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Devoy | 12/20/2012

    " Gritty, very realistic, a little too much so for some, I'm sure. Very gripping read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashleigh | 11/14/2012

    " Don't know why, but I loved this book. Was really easy to read, and was fast paced.. A really good book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 9/6/2012

    " Turns out Burke is almost as noir as the types he stalks, though he manages to serve his monomania in the worst circumstances. And his old army buddy is the noirest of all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dillon Strange | 8/15/2012

    " This is pretty over the top. So extremely hard boiled that it was comical at times. I don't have a very strong stomach for child abuse, etc. and this book was packed with it. If you are looking for a gritty, bleak, incredibly violent crime book, you could do a lot worse. "
