Description

A hit man defies the confines of a life sentence to avenge his sister's batterer.An immaculately dressed man hires a street gang to extract his daughter from a Central American prison, for reasons as mysterious as they are deadly.A two-bit graffiti artist with a taste for Nazi-ganda finds himself face-to-face with three punks out to make a mark of their own literally with a tattoo needle. From neo-noir master Andrew Vachss comes "Everybody Pays," 38 white-knuckle rides into a netherworld of pederasts and prostitutes, stick-up kids and fall guys where private codes of crime and punishment pulsate beneath a surface system of law and order, and our moralcompass spins frighteningly out of control. Here is the street-grit prose that has earned Vachss comparisons to Chandler, Cain, and Hammett--and the ingenious plot twists that transform the double-cross into an expression of retribution, the dark deed into a thing of beauty. Electrifying and enigmatic, "Everybody Pays"is a sojourn into the nature of evil itself a trip made all the more frightening by its proximity to our front doorstep."
