Product description

Review

"Vachss seems bottomlessly knowledgeable about the depth and variety of human twistedness." --The New York Times

"We are taken not simply into the mean streets but into a subterranean nightmare world. A place as compelling and morally challenging as any to be found in the best crime fiction today." --The Washington Post Book World

"[Vachss is] able to wring edginess from his portrayal of a society hovering beneath the radar." --The Village Voice

From the Back Cover

From a writer whose novels have been acclaimed for their unflinching exploration of evil comes a brilliant collection of short stories--some never before published--that distill dread back down to its essence--and inject it straight into the reader's back brain. Andrew Vachss might have scissored his characters from today's headlines: a stalker prowling around an anonymous high-rise; a serial killer whose transgressions reflect a childhood of hideous abuse; an inner-city gunman who is willing to take out a blockful of victims in order to win a moment of acceptance.
Tautly written and endowed with murderous ironic spin, Born Bad plunges us into the hell that lies just outside our bedroom windows.
