A hit man stalks his mark at a race track. A sociopath
crosses every moral boundary to become a published author. An ex-mercenary
obsessively defends his “perimeter” from a dangerous interloper. A man for hire
grudgingly accepts help from a teenage girl to track an online predator. In a
dystopian future, young people struggle for survival underground, forming
themselves into vicious gangs with only the graffiti of the “last journalists”
accepted as truth.
Andrew Vachss collects twenty tight, powerful stories, all
from the past decade of his career, including some now published for the first
time, along with an original screenplay. Together, they form Mortal Lock, a searing portrait of the
criminal underworld, with both its depravity and humanity on display.
