A hit man defies the confines of a life sentence to avenge his sister's batterer.nbsp;nbsp;An immaculately dressed man hires a street gang to extract his daughter from a Central American prison, for reasons as mysterious as they are deadly.nbsp;nbsp;A two-bit graffiti artist with a taste for Nazi-ganda finds himself face-to-face with three punks out to make a mark of their own--literally--with a tattoo needle. 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 moralnbsp;nbsp;compass 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 nbsp;is a sojourn into the nature of evil itself--a trip made all the more frightening by its proximity to our front doorstep.
