What! No Phil Gigante, I tried to listen to 2 chapters. It was so slow tempo and simply a rip off. Mr Wirth is no doubt an excellent narrator. His Burke, Prof, mama, and Clarence weren't on point. Didn't get to hear Michelle, and Mole, but I was done as soon as Mr. Wirth spoke as Burke. Then the horrible Prof, I returned the book.. Again no disrespect intended to Mr. Wirth, just so used to Mr. Gigante and how far he took all of the characters in the series...

This is audiobook #12 in the Casca Series. Casca Longinus, witness to the crucifixion of Christ on Golgotha. Emerging in our modern world as "Casey Romain," he gathers the best-trained mercenaries available to topple the regime of Matthew Dzhombe, the crazed dictator of Kimshaka. Killing Dzhombe, who claims to be an immortal god, is only part of the problem. The tougher part is dealing with the treacheries of tribal politics and international intrigue. The West, the Chinese, and the Russians are all seeking the lion's share of Casca's conquest.

He also gets help in the form of a stripper named Belle, whose moves on the runway are outclassed only by what she can do in a getaway car.

Andrew Vachss’s implacable private eye has a new client, Strega. She wants Burke to find an obscene photograph and that search will take him into the ocean that flows just beneath the city, an ocean whose currents are flesh and money, the anguish of children and the pleasure of twisted adults. It is a place that Burke can visit only at the risk of his sanity and his life. But between the power of Strega and his own sense of justice, there is no turning back.

In Strega one of our most acclaimed crime writers gives us a thriller that might have been imagined by Dante. For this is a tour of hell with no stops left out, conducted by a novelist who writes with the authority of the damned.

“It’s wonderful. The words leap off the page. The plot is fresh. The principal character is original. The style is as clean as a haiku.” — The Washington Post Book World

Burke's newest client is a woman named Flood, who has the face of an angel, the body of a high-priced stripper, and the skills of a professional executioner. She wants Burke to find a monster for her - so she can kill him with her bare hands. In this thriller, Andrew Vachss's renegade private eye teams up with a lethally gifted avenger to follow a child's murderer through the catacombs of New York, where every alley is blind and the penthouses are as dangerous as the basements.
