I have discovered Andrew Vachss' "Burke" series. He's a "shadowy, unlicensed investigator, ex con, criminal and deeply conflicted character " battling against child abusers and other issues.
There are 18 novels, I am on #5, so I have at least a month or three of reading left!
Vachss was one of the original lawyer writers... interesting looking dude,
has an eye patch.
I very much like the Burke character.. he has a 140 pound mastiff named Pansy and an interesting cast of supporting characters.
Quick, easy entertaining reads.
