Vachss has a staccato style of writing that might not be for everyone, but he has a solid story about an ex-con helping his former cellmate with a problem far removed from the streets of New York. Although this was the fifth in a series, I had not read the previous four and was able to follow the story despite references to past experiences. Interesting concept of an ex-con going after guys who destroy children's lives even though that is not the main story in this book.

Author tries to write like Mickey Spillane and doesn't quite make it. I am a speed reader and this style just doesn't cut it for me, One word sentences are not writing, I don't even think that way! Give him a pass.

Horrible writing--choppy and assumes we can follow half articulated thought--masquerading as a "hard-boiled detective" story. Fragments of sentences, single words as sentences maybe intended to make this a mystery, but it was a misery instead. I plan to NOT read any more Vachss--ever.
