For abe, who I never met. But have always known. I didn't say anything. I'm not in the phone book. You have to have a phone of your own to qualify for that. The lawyer had called one of the pay phones in the back of Mama Wong's restaurant. I figured Belle must work as one of the back-table waitresses, but I didn't want to ask for her by name. The tables stayed empty while the girls worked the top of the bar, so I'd have to wait for the next number, move into the darkness by myself, look around. I sipped my tonic, lit another smoke.

Author: Andrew Vachss. Burke is one of the most cold-blooded yet strangely honorable heroes in the history of crime fiction, an outlaw who makes his living by preying on the most vicious of New York City’s bottom-feeders, those who thrive on the suffering of children. In Andrew Vachss’s tautly engrossing novel Burke is given a purse full of dirty money to find the infamous Ghost Van that is cutting a lethal swath among the teenage prostitutes in the ‘hood. He also gets help in the form of a stripper named Belle, whose moves on the runway are outclassed only by what she can do in a getaway car. But not even. Burke is prepared for the evil that is behind the Ghost Van or for the sheer menace of its guardian, a cadaverous karate expert who enjoys killing so much that he has named himself after death.
If Andrew Vachss did his books Sesame Street style, then this one would be brought to you by the letter M because in addition to Max, Michelle, Mama and the Mole, he adds characters named Mortay, McGowan, Morelli, Morales and Marques. Of course, if Vachss did Sesame Street then Bert and Ernie would turn out to be pedophiles that would lure Elmo into their house with promises of candy while Big Bird filmed it. And you don't even want to know what that freak Mr. Snuffleupagus would be doing
About book: It often pays to follow your instincts. I was in a bookstore one day - the day itself was nothing special - when I spotted this book on a rack. I wasn't into any particular genre (I'm still not), and I'll never be able to tell you what one thing drew me to picking up BLUE BELLE. I had no idea what kind of amazing yet relentlessly dark ride I was in fo. ver since, I've had nothing but the utmost respect for Andrew Vachss, and if in any way I can enlighten others about his novels and more importantly the good works he does, his mission to enlighten us about 'The Children of the Secret', I will without.
Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. 1. Vachss, Andrew - A Bomb Built In Hell.
Once the tip of Spanish Harlem, it was now liberated territory-the yuppie land–grab machine wouldn't be satisfied until gentrification ate the South Bronx an beings lived in the tenements and investment bankers lived in the suburbs. Now we got plenty of rehab apartments for tomorrow's leaders. And more people living in the streets than they have in Calcutta. I parked under the East Side Drive overpass and walked over to the court. Ten minutes to one. I watched people playing: handball, paddleball, basketball.
