Críticas:


"Vachss doesn't sugarcoat things in this brutal, detailed piece of work, but that's what makes it fascinating. Vachss' fans will love this example of the author's early writing, which predates his Burke books by several years. Rejected by publishers decades ago due to its high level of violence, the years have not diminished its impact."
--"Mystery Scene"

"History has caught up to Wesley's bleak odyssey, repeatedly rejected for publication decades ago but now unnervingly prescient."
--"Kirkus Reviews"

""A Bomb Built in Hell" presages motifs Vachss employed in the Burke novels, but even crime fans unfamiliar with Burke can relish it. Wesley is utterly remorseless, and the story is told in the coldest and sparest of prose."

Wesley emerges from prison as the perfect hit man: calculating, deadly, and ice-cold. He follows Carmine s instructions: locate the last of us, one Mr. Petraglia, thenassassinate a Chinatown gang boss and a Mafia chief bothhad overstepped theirbounds. But then Wesley findshis "own"mission: As he begins to see the root of all he has learned to hate, he and a youth just out of reform school, known only as The Kid, begin to take out political targets.
