If anyone is interested in scanning some rather hard-boiled crime fiction,
I have a request for a series I enjoy.
The author is Andrew Vachss, and the series is known as the Burke series,
named for the main-character, Burke, an ex-con (still criminal) private eye
who operates in the underworld of New York City. Burke is not a man of much
compunction, but he loathes those who would prey on children...
Currently, only one Burke book is up on bookshare.org, with the title of
The Rest of the books are (starting from the beginning of the series:
Down In The Zero
Footsteps of the Hawk
Choice of Evil
Dead and Gone
Only Child (already in the collection)
Warning: These books dont stint on the violence or the darkness of life.
They are not masterpieces, but very powerful in their way, as well as just
being an enthralling read.
