Andrew Vachss has been a federal investigator in sexually transmitted diseases, a social services caseworker, and a labor organizer, and has directed a maximum-security prison for youthful offenders. Now a lawyer in private practice, he represents children and youths exclusively. He is the author of numerous novels, including the Burke series, three collections of short stories, and a wide variety of other material including song lyrics, graphic novels, and a "children's book for adults." His books have been translated into twenty languages and his work has appeared in Parade, Antaeus, Esquire, Playboy, the New York Times, and numerous other forums. A native New Yorker, he now divides his time between the city of his birth and the Pacific Northwest.
The dedicated Web site for Vachss and his work is vachss.com.
BATMAN: THE ULTIMATE EVIL offers a surreal mix of hypersuperficiality and gritty realism. Here, the Caped Crusader battles, not super-villains, but all too real child molesters and purveyors of kiddie porn. Vachss's hard-bitten prose well suits the Dark Knight. While the comic book conventions employed tend to draw away from the underlying seriousness of the subject, this is a highly visible vehicle with which to convey this message. Tony Roberts deftly strikes the tricky balance between fiction and realism. Incidental music sets the ominous tone and allows for lightening-quick scene changes. S.J.L. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
