False Allegations: A Burke Novel by Andrew Vachss

In the first rank of American crime writers. . . . Next to Vachss, Chandler, Cain and Hammett look like choirboys. --Cleveland Plain Dealer Burke--ex-con, mercenary, sometime killer--makes his living preying on New Yorks most vicious predators and avenging their innocent victims. But in Andrew Vachsss mercilessly suspenseful new novel, Burke finds himself working the other side of the street, where guilt and innocence are as disposable as the sheets in a Times Square hotel--and as dirty. Burkes new employer is Kite, a fanatical crusader who specializes in debunking false allegationsof child sexual abuse. Kite has a case that may be the real thing, but needs Burke to tell him if it is. And if mere money cant persuade Burke to cooperate, Kite has plenty of other incentives at his disposal--including a fanatical bodyguard with a taste for corsets and brass knuckles. A tour guide to hell written in icy prose, False Allegations is Vachss at his most unnerving. Burke is the toughest talking first-person narrator since Mike Hammer. --Los Angeles Times Vachss . . . writes hypnotically violent prose. --Chicago Sun-Times
