Product Details


“Vachss conveys his protagonist’s reality in and out of prison in a knowing manner. Along the way, he creates sympathy for a criminal whose code of honor, and whose survival, turns out to be a work in progress.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Sugar and Rena are a canny, lethal team that bears watching in the hopes they become future players in Vachss’s ever-growing arsenal of tarnished, avenging angels.” —Los Angeles Times

“Rippling with the whip-smart dialogue we have come to expect from Vachss, this is yet another classic from the master.” —Irish Independent
“The prose is red-hot, mean, stripped down, and sometimes, just plain serious.” —San Francisco Book Review

“Few plumb the . . . integrity of the ‘honorable’ criminal mind like Vachss. [These] brutal insights provide only the lexicon for what is really a battered and bruised romance—a salvation . . . for those who shoulder life’s true weight.”—Winnipeg Free Press
“Damn scary. Vachss’ fans will not be disappointed.” —Booklist
“[Vachss writes] some of the cleanest, meanest, stripped-down-and-sparkling prose ever penned.” —The Austin Chronicle
“There’s no way to put a [Vachss book] down once you’ve begun.” —Detroit Free Press
“Vachss is red-hot and as serious as a punctured lung.” —Playboy
