Summary
A collection of noir-style tales: A hit man stalks his mark at a race track. A sociopath crosses every moral boundary to become a published author. An ex-mercenary obsessively defends his perimeter against a dangerous interloper. Andrew Vachss collects twenty tight, powerful stories, all from the past decade. Together, they form "Mortal Lock," a searing portrait of the criminal underworld, with both its depravity and humanity on display
