Everybody Pays: Stories (Paperback)
Vintage Crime/Black Lizard, 9780375707438, 384pp.
Publication Date: September 7, 1999
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.
