Undercurrents rise to the surface as Dell employs his mercenary soldier skills to follow the trail of a man who unwisely threatened his beloved wife, Dolly. This is a man with the deadly patience of a gila monster and a complex agenda: possibly the first partner in literature who tries to pass as a gay man, as a light-skinned person of color would have passed for white decades ago. This new threat endangers Dell and Dolly's "found family": MaryLou, the woman they helped clear of murder charges; her close friend, Franklin; and Mack, Dolly's social worker-friend, whom Dell permitted to help with his investigation into neo-Nazi groups and who has just gotten married.

I wish their were more Burke books available. I like those bear, with Cross second. They have criminal friends that help and have personalities, too. Dell only has the "Ghost". Still, worth a listen if you like Vachss.
