Though Andrew Vachss's Burke books are written in the 1990s and later, they keep alive a sleazy New York image that hearkens back to a darker but more interesting era. Certainly, the city remains a pit in Sacrifice, the sixth Burke book.

With blistering power, Safe House reminds us why Kirkus has called Burke "one of the most fascinating male characters in crime fiction. Safe House comes at you with the speed of a bullet train, a style as spare and stripped down as origami, and Andrew Vachss' usual black-as-pitch theme-the abuse of innocence.

In the figure of Burke, Andrew Vachss has given contemporary crime fiction one of its most mesmerizing characters. An abused child raised in orphanages. Blossom" definitely stands on its own, but for a richer more comprehensive read you should have more background information. I do not have an addictive personality, but the Burke series is one of the most powerful in the crime suspense/thriller genre.

Andrew Henry Vachss (born October 19, 1942) is an American crime fiction author, child protection consultant, and attorney exclusively representing children and youths. Vachss' last name rhymes with "tax". He grew up in Manhattan on the Lower West Side. Before becoming a lawyer, Vachss held many front-line positions in child protection. He was a federal investigator in sexually transmitted diseases, and a New York City social-services caseworker.

The Burke Series is a fictional 18-book series written by Andrew Vachss, centered around a man named Burke.

Safe House, the latest in Andrew Vachss's series of Burke novels, begins when Burke's "brother," Hercules, is paid to scare off a neo-nazi stalker and accidentally kills the wrong guy. Burke finds himself unwittingly drawn into a world of white supremacists, stalkers, and safe house networks. What ensues is an intense rush to cover Hercules' tracks and, at the same time, bring down a New York City white supremacy ring. Safe House offers up Vachss's repertoire of repeat characters

In Burke, Andrew Vachss gave readers of crime fiction a hero they could believe in, an avenger whose sense of justice was forged behind bars and tempered on New York’s meanest streets. In this blistering thriller, Burke is drawn into his ugliest case yet, one that involves an underground network of abused women and the sleekly ingenious stalkers who’ve marked them as their personal victims. Burke’s client is Crystal Beth, a beautiful outlaw with a tattoo on her face and a mission burned into her heart. She’s trying to shield one of her charges from a vengeful ex with fetishes for Nazism and torture. But the stalker has a protector, someone so informed, so ruthless, and so connected that he need only make a few phone calls to shut down Crystal Beth’s operation for good — and Burke along with it. Sinuous in its complexities, brutal in its momentum, Safe House is Burke at the edge of his nerve and cunning. And it’s Vachss at the peak of his form. “Scorching . . . the prose is accomplished, stylized and flinty; the plot is direct and commanding.” — Seattle Times “Vachss’s reverence for storytelling is evident in the blunt beauty of his language.” — Chicago Sun-Times

An ok book with a terrible ending. There were some really good twists in the story but also some rather silly parts. I could not understand how Dr Sam was so distraught about the death of her lover after she had been constantly thinking of dumping him and moving away to have a break from him! Why would she go out in a small boat, in a storm, when she hates water and is a novice at sailing? Especially when she is having doubts about the person who is taking her, it doesn't make sense. I think I will stick with the Frieda KIein series.

The street word on this Burke novel was that it, like FALSE ALLEGATIONS and CHOICE OF EVIL, was spoiled by an excess of didacticism and a paucity of plot and action. When I finally located and read a copy, which was not easy, by the way, I found the word to be exaggerated.
There is indeed a plot, which blends white-supremacist movements with the societal problems of stalking and spousal abuse. To help out old friend Herk and new friend Crystal Beth, Burke and his "family" find themselves needing to murder a couple of bad guys in cold blood and put all their lives on the line to derail a plan to level a Federal building in NYC with half a dozen truckloads of explosives.
Burke finds himself working with an enigmatic undercover figure who calls himself Pryce, and who is multiply connected to the local and state police, and Feds, in extraordinary ways. There is a hint that Pryce may enter Burke's life again, once he gets a new face; let's hope he does.
In summary, this is another chilling Vachss tour of the underbelly of our society. If you have a strong stomach, it's a tour you won't regret taking.

It started out great but fizzled out very quickly and the only reason I kept reading was to find out what happened in the end.
The story was lack lustre and the characters boring

If you are a fan of Andrew Vachss and I am, you look forward to the next book, so was the way with SAFE HOUSE. Buke in NYC with all his crew, Mama, Prof, Max, Michelle, Clarence, his whole crew. And we meet Wolfe again and Vyra and introducing Crystal Beth. I like the book in NYC and with the crew, they all add so much. This book was a little slow and had lots of social info which is always a staple of Vachss books. Nazis, and abused women, Feds, and boms, could you ask for more. RECOMMENDED. On to CHOICE OF EVIL.

Once again, I have this book in hardback but had to buy it for my kindle, (eyes are not getting any younger) I am a great fan of Andrew Vachss books.
Once you start a Vachss book, you are in for the night. All great books deserve to be read again and again. Buy the book. Do yourself a favor and start with Flood.

Good book

This book was only ok because I thought the ending was very loose and I had to keep going back a few pages to see if I had missed something, so disappointed
Good
