About this title

Synopsis:

Burke, an ex-con and private detective, tries to track down a child pornographer and escape the attempts of Strega, the daughter of a Mafia leader, to gain control of him

From the Inside Flap:

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.
