A hit man defies the confines of a life sentence to avenge his sister's batterer. 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. 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 pedophiles and prostitutes, stick-up kids and fall guys?where private codes of right and wrong pulsate beneath a surface system of law and order. 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.
