When the former shot-caller of the country's most feared white supremacist prison gang contacts Burke, he comes with references...and the promise of a huge score. Terminally ill, the ex-con needs major cash to gamble on the long-shot possibility of a cure that's available only in Switzerland.

The one card he has to play is a small-time degenerate who paid for protection when they were in prison together. That professional bottom-feeder claims he personally buried the body of a 13-year-old girl who had been raped, tortured, and finally killed by three rich men more than 30 years ago - and that he's holding irrefutable proof. But such a complicated extortion scheme needs the hand of a specialist crew, so Burke is offered a piece of the action.

He and his outlaw family put together a lethal plan. If they can pull it off, Burke gets the two things he lives for: money and revenge. If they can't, terminal could prove to be more than just one man's diagnosis. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 11/5/2013

    " i always love a good burke novel....he's a criminal who takes advantage of abusers and rapists and he works to empower victims. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 9/28/2013

    " Vachss always delivers an interesting plot and a look at the underside of the criminal world which strikes true and reveals what that world may be really like. "

    " Good Burke thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 6/8/2013

    " Labeling Vachss work "hard-boiled" is an insult. The stories and characters go so much deeper than that. There are a few passages where Burke/Vachss gets on his soapbox and the work becomes more editorial than story-telling, but that's okay. In this case the words need to be said. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ed | 5/20/2013

    " Always finds a way to complete a vengeful caper that is new and refreshing. A great read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi | 10/11/2012

    " I didn't realize this was Book 17 of a series about this Burke character, which perhaps tainted my impression. It is to men what romance novels are to women, stereotypically. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jack | 11/23/2010

    " I don't think this would make any sense if you hadn't read all the other books in the series first. Contains a 3 or 4 page excerpt from an earlier book instead of coming up with it's own way to introduce backstory -- lazy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 7/24/2010

    " Wow. Andrew Vachss is my newest favorite author. I can't wait to read the Burke series from the beginning--I've already ordered the first five books. That should keep me occupied while I wait for the new Easy Rawlins book to come out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 4/3/2010

    " I love Vachss and Burke. Hard core crime fiction, not for the delicate flower. Burke can be a little self-righteous, but I don't care, so can I. What's the plot? Burke goes after a bad guy and people get killed in the process. Like all of them. And I can read it over and over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fara | 5/13/2009

    " I'd forgotten who much I like this author - very dark, but very complex characters. I'm re-reading the earlier ones. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dee | 3/2/2009

    " The end for Burke and the end for me; I gave away all of my Vacchs books after attempting this truly violent and sexually horrific novel. Too over the top for me, his rage has so overpowered plot, narrative, sense, story, character that I found it unreadable "
