In Vachss's acclaimed first novel, we are introduced to Burke, the avenging angel of abused children. Burke's client is a woman named Flood, who has the face of an angel, the body of a high-priced stripper, and the skills of a professional executioner. She wants Burke to find a monster -- so she can kill him with her bare hands. In this cauterizing thriller, Andrew Vachss's renegade private eye teams up with a lethally gifted vigilante to follow a child's murderer through the catacombs of New York, where every alley is a setup for a mugging and every tenement has something rotten in the basement. Fearfully knowing, buzzing with narrative tension, and written in prose as forceful as a hollow-point bullet, Flood is Burke at his deadliest -- and Vachss at the peak of his form.

“Flood” is the first book in the long series of PI and antihero Burke. Also, it is my first experience with Andrew Vachss.

A thriller! A genre I like a lot less than mystery, because the lack of surprise!

So, a thriller it is, but although I’m not an expert in the genre, I’m pretty sure “Flood” is not your average thriller. The way Andrew Vachss writes and what he writes about is beyond what conventional thriller crime author talks about.

Child abuse, prostitution, pedophiles and sadomasoquism are the kind of issues he brings up on this book. Light issues. Indeed!

The book kept my attention throughout most of the book, although I’ve to admit I’d a hard time with the annoying fact that this book was written in an era when Karate and Kung Fu were seeing as lethal self-defense weapons.

Will I read another book of Mr. Andrew Vachss? Probably not! But you never know…


cheers
