Publisher's Summary

Vachss has reinvented detective fiction and, in the person of Burke, his haunted, hell-ridden P.I., has given listeners a new kind of hero.

Investigating an epidemic of apparent suicides among the teenagers of a wealthy suburb, Burke discovers a sinister connection between the anguish of the young and the activities of an elite sadomasochistic underground.

Listen to all of our Burke titles.

Critic Reviews

"Burke's return is welcome - his superstud act may be extreme here, but he's one of the most fascinating male characters in crime fiction; and as usual, Vachss controls his narrative, cut up into bullet-sized chapters, with admirable precision." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Deliciously scummy....His bad guys are memorably heinous." (Washington Post Book World)
