In this mercilessly compelling thriller, Burke—the private eye, sting artist, and occasional hit man who metes out a cruelly ingenious vengeance on those who victimize children—is up against a soft-spoken messiah, who may be rescuing runaways or recruiting them for his own hideous purposes. But in doing so Burke becomes a target for an entire Mafia family, a whore with a heart of cyanide, and a contract killer as implacable as a heat-seeking missile. Written with Vachss's signature narrative overdrive—and his unnerving familiarity with the sub-basement of American crime—Hard Candy is vintage Burke.

Too Noir For Me Right Now2019年1月12日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I didn't really plan to start this 4th Burke entry, but I guess I figured that I could handle some noir right now. hmmm, not so much. Not as good as the last book, because Burke is moping after losing Belle (last book) for about half of the book. It did get better and I appreciate Andrew Vachss and his style. I enjoy Burke and his relationship with his "brother" Silent Max, and the rest of his "family." God help me, they seem like old friends at this point. The second half of the book was pretty well plotted and I did like it, but I didn't put the next on my Kindle. Maybe enough, already.
Great read...2017年6月13日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Tough, gritty writing style. It made for a gripping read. Very complex storyline kept interest high. I'll be reading more of the Burke novels.

Gritty, shocking and utterly compelling. Vachss writes modern noir at its very darkest. Not for the faint of heart, Vachss' early works, in particular, provide glimpses into a parallel subterranean society that most of us are thankfully blissfully unaware of. Fast paced with a distinctive, if somewhat cartoonish cast of characters (ala "Sin City"), "Hard Candy" is a terrific read.

It seems to me after reading all of the Burke Vachss novels one after the other that there is an assuring resonance from one of these absorptive thrillers to another. The series is remarkably repetitious and wonderfully compelling. Great characters and quite an assembly of interdependent Burkean enablers.
