It's been years since Burke has been home, years since he's seen his family and worked in the underbelly of New York City. Although his appearance has changed, his reputation grown dusty, and his wallet thin, his skills and his crew remain razor sharp. So when he is contacted by a mob boss to investigate the murder of his illegitimate daughter, Vonni, Burke takes the job and begins searching for an unspeakably vicious killer.

Posing as a casting director looking for tomorrow's stars, Burke reaches out to the high-school students who knew Vonni, and may know the identity of the killer. Before long, he unearths a perverse enterprise: a young director pursuing a brutal new type of cinema vérité.

    " Vachss gets the runaround from Hollywood and decides to write a book demonizing the film business. Above average for his recent fare but a far cry from his earlier work and some of his stand alone novels. "

    " Thought I'd give Andrew Vachss and his Burke series another try having not read one of his novels for a few years. Didn't care for this - same circuitous style of solving a problem. Maybe I'm just past this phase.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Henry | 1/11/2013

    " Burke series - Set in Ney York, a mobsters daughter is slaughtered and dumped. Burke lives outside the system, he despises people who victimize children. He is hired to track down the killer, and he and his family learn about the movie business in the process. "

    " I try to read everything by Andrew Vachss, but I liked his earlier Burke novels much more than the later ones. They were trashier, but so much more passionate. "

    " It is nice to see Burke back in NYC and home with his family after being forced to hide out in past novels. "

    " an attempt at a reboot of the series
    but Burke finds home is not the same
    some things are different
    new car, now house
    but family is still there
    the only one missing is Pansy "
