Andrew Vachss’s implacable private eye has a new client, Strega. She wants Burke to ﬁnd an obscene photograph and that search will take him into the ocean that ﬂows just beneath the city, an ocean whose currents are ﬂesh and money, the anguish of children and the pleasure of twisted adults. It is a place that Burke can visit only at the risk of his sanity and his life. But between the power of Strega and his own sense of justice, there is no turning back.
In Strega one of our most acclaimed crime writers gives us a thriller that might have been imagined by Dante. For this is a tour of hell with no stops left out, conducted by a novelist who writes with the authority of the damned.
