Now he has to find her again - not only because she might be in danger, but also because he has to prove to himself that his rescue mission hadn't been financed by a predator who wanted his "property" returned. His search will force him to confront a new kind of human ugliness and, finally, to practice the survivalist triage that has marked - and cursed - his life since childhood. In Mask Market, Burke the outlaw investigator finds himself searching for the truth: not only about a girl named Beryl, but also about himself.
This is classic Burke: dark, dangerous, and galvanizing, from the opening scene to the explosive climax.

Vachss's book Burke novels are always about the dark part of the streets with all its grime, shadows, smells, and bare reality that few novelists have the courage or knowledge to write about. It is a world full of greys and outside the radar. The novels are fun thriller/mysteries but made only for those that don't mind the dirt of reality served with thier thrills.
The one thing bad about all Burke books is that they never go in a straight line so it can be difficult to those with a bit of ADD. Vachss likes to constantly be going off on side stories, explanations, and background which makes it very difficult for me to read. The good news is that this is not as aggrivating when your are listening to the stories.
The reader for this series is excellent. All the Burke novels are highly recommended and unlike any other. If you like your vision to teach you something and see things in a new light (even if messes with how you want to see the world), not just take you on a ride then you can miss with anything at Audiobooks by Vachss.
I would recommend all of Andrew Vachss' collection.
Being a HUGE fan of "Burke", I might be somewhat bias.
