Reviews

"Vachss conveys his protagonist's reality in and out of prison in a knowing manner. Along the way, he creates sympathy for a criminal whose code of honor, and whose survival, turns out to be a work in progress." --The Wall Street Journal "Sugar and Rena are a canny, lethal team that bears watching in the hopes they become future players in Vachss's ever-growing arsenal of tarnished, avenging angels." --Los Angeles Times "Rippling with the whip-smart dialogue we have come to expect from Vachss, this is yet another classic from the master." --Irish Independent

"The prose is red-hot, mean, stripped down, and sometimes, just plain serious." --San Francisco Book Review "Few plumb the . . . integrity of the 'honorable' criminal mind like Vachss. [These] brutal insights provide only the lexicon for what is really a battered and bruised romance--a salvation . . . for those who shoulder life's true weight."--Winnipeg Free Press "Damn scary. Vachss' fans will not be disappointed." --Booklist

"[Vachss writes] some of the cleanest, meanest, stripped-down-and-sparkling prose ever penned." --The Austin Chronicle "There's no way to put a [Vachss book] down once you've begun." --Detroit Free Press "Vachss is red-hot and as serious as a punctured lung." --Playboy
