FLOOD

"Despite the repeated use of often distasteful subject matter used to relentless effect (some even accuse him of downright exploitation), Vachss is at heart a strong moralist, and an angry man who, through his renegade character Burke, summons up savage retribution against the society he perversely refuses to be a part of, a society which encourages child prostitution, sexual exploitation and other extreme vices, a society no longer deserving of the name, harboring as it does in its dark heart the seeds of urban evil." - Maxim Jakubowski, Henderson (ed), Twentieth-Century Crime and Mystery Writers, third edition (1991), pp. 1035-6. Neat gift inscription on front free endpaper, a fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with three small abrasions to rear panel. (#94194)
