||Another Life is the end of a journey that began with Flood, Andrew Vachss' first novel featuring career criminal Burke and
his Family of Choice. "I didn't set out to write a series. Who but a
terminal narcissist would?" the author says of his 1985 debut. But
twenty-three years—and seventeen Burke novels—later, Andrew Vachss
is finally bringing down the curtain on a series that has been
described as "urban nightmares" by Publishers Weekly, and
"strong, gritty, gut-bucket stuff" by the Chicago Tribune.
Anyone who has felt a part of the family that includes recurring
series characters Max, the Mole, Michelle, the Prof, Terry,
Clarence, and Mama—characters the Seattle Post-Intelligencer says "are as sharply defined as if they were etched in steel"—will
want to be there for the end of the journey, as best-selling, award-winning author Andrew Vachss ties up the loose ends, and sends his
Family of Choice off to ... Another Life.|
