Publisher's Summary

What — or who — could turn a gifted little boy into a murderous thing that calls itself "Satan’s Child"? In search of an answer, a man named Burke travels from a festering welfare hotel to a neat frame house where a voodoo priestess presides over a congregation of assassins. For this vigilante and unlicensed private eye has made it his business to defend the small victims whom the law has failed — even a child who has been made into a killer.

Gripping and chillingly knowledgeable about the mechanisms of evil, Sacrifice is a thriller of savage authority from one of the best crime writers of our generation.

Listen to all of our Burke titles.

What the Critics Say

"Vachss is a contemporary master....Decidedly hard-boiled, his prose is as lean, tough-edged and brittle as the man who is his protagonist." (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

"A harrowing tale in which outcasts are the moral heroes, and the people who belong to civilization are corrupt....An absolute original....Andrew Vachss has become a cult favorite, and for good reason." (Cosmopolitan)

    "Andrew Vachss Delivers"
    Where does Sacrifice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    All Vachss novels, but especially the Burke series are at the top of my list of MUST reads or listen to. I repeatedly listen to all of them


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I have never read any thing that holds my attention more. I went thru the whole series as fast as I could and then started over again. My favorites, and at 71 and an incessant book or audible person that's saying something.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    He is the BEST of narrator's. I have listened to him on audible's other than Vachss novels and it makes no difference, he compels you to believe that he IS that person.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I just hated to turn it off, I always wanted to know what was next.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there were more Burke novels to look forward to, and more of Vachss in general!!
