    Pain Management By Andrew Vachss

    I like a book with really short chapters Pain Management meets the short chapter requirement Evidently I am not going to read any literature for a while yet I already have my next two books stacked on my desk The Sins of the Fathers and Mystic River I am looking forward to reading both of them for the first time In fact it will be my first exposure to the authors Lawrence Block and Dennis Lehane But I don t think they count any as literature than this book This is my third Andrew Vachss book in [...]

    Quite simply a magnificent novel that borders on being atrue work of art and genius I have no idea how Vachss can write something of this quality Don t approach this thinking you can simply sit back and be entertained as Vachss does not operate like that this is a book designed to get the grey matter stirring and you ll find your mind wandering off at tangents time after time normally a bad sign in abook but in this case it s most definitely not.

    Vacchs is a keeper Man goes deep on morality, a code for living, and the need for that to live well Purposefully and rightly Even if the main character s a criminal When he cuts off the fist two stretches of the index fingers of a guy, he cauterizes them with his mini blow torch, and the guy had cut a lot of hookers who hadn t paid up 20 bucks a night for protection someone else s racket who he later takes out instantaneously and without remose or a second s thought when the kingpin of this pett [...]

    Another great book by Vachss The I read his work, the better I like it.

    As usual, Vachss delivers a solid thriller After the events of Dead and Gone, Burke finds himself recovering in Portland, not able to go back to NYC, he takes on the search of a missing teenager Of course, everything is not what it seems and the case takes a few turns As much as I enjoyed this, I missed Burke New York family Max, Mama, Michelle, Mole and The Prof Vachss has made those characters live and breathe and I felt their absence.An enjoyable entry in a powerful series.

    Not my favorite, but not bad Some exciting subplots in Portland, but I want Burke back home.

    Burke is away from his home turf As always Vachss writes with page turning precision

    Spencer Abbott
    This entry in the Burke series started out really, really strong and then managed to fall off drastically, mostly due to several plot elements, including a side bar on pain medicine and a red herring about a tandem man woman serial killer duo that never panned out The initial elements, Burke looking for a runaway, started out promising, but then got seriously sidetracked Add to the fact that a vibrant character from the previous novel, Gem, this time out becomes distant and obtuse, much in the s [...]

    You ve read all the stuff about what actually happens in Pain Management already, so let s not rehash any of that.Vachss novels appeal to a couple different types of readers the surface dwellers, and the mission soldiers No judgments intended or implied For the surface dwellers, there is plenty of quality character development, noir action and twisty plot Vachss ranks with the best in this area Connelly, Lehane,Crais, Block, etc Some great new characters let s all praise ANN O DYNE Hubba Hubba , [...]

    Definitely the weakest installment in the series I ve read so far Vachss brings Burke to unfamiliar territory Portland with less than stellar results Gone are the rich characters we ve come to know and love and in their place is a wide array of one dimensional personalities and an endlessly boring search for a teenage runaway The payoff is weak even by later Burke series standards and is sure to rub a few people the wrong way I m a completist so I had to read this installment but in all honesty [...]

    Burke in Portland The unlicensed private eye and unrepentant con man is still on the west coast after chasing down the men that ordered the attack that nearly killed him The New York cops have declared him dead and he s doing nothing to dissuade them of this notion, waiting with his wife Gem for word from his family that to coast is clear to return to New York City While he waits, he is employed by a shady architect with a radical past to find his missing daughter Along the way, Burke hooks up w [...]

    Pain Management 2001 finds Burke staying in Portland with Gem He accepts a job to find Rosebud, a teenage girl who disappeared from her home She appears to be a runaway But why Operating in Portland, without the familiar New York cast of underworld characters Max, Michelle, the Mole, Mama, Clarence, and others Burke is just another private investigator, and this is just another mystery plot.Burke uses this book to preach against restrictions on industrial strength pain medicine for terminally il [...]

    This is not one fo Vachss better works A bit clunky and tired, like the squeeking chassis of 71 Dodge Dart The characters are two dimensional than his earlier works which led me here Flood, Strega Sadly, although I really looked forward to this book, I found myself reading with weary contempt, not the grinding envy I expected Oh well, there s 10 other Burke novels prior to this one I can still read

    David Ward
    Pain Management Burke 13 by Andrew Vachss Alfred A Knopf 2001 Fiction Mystery finds Burke in the Pacific Northwest cut off from his former life in NYC and allied with Samaritans who heist pain medications for the underprescribed My rating 4 10, finished 6 23 11.

    Gritty fast read dealing with similar subjects child abuse, loyalty, a different view of family, and virtue that Vachss often deals with Set in Portland, Oregon rather than New York Rating 3 1 2.

    The Burke novels have just become part of how I view the world Reading Vachss s books has helped me heal from a difficult childhood effectively than therapy

    I thought this was pretty good right up until the very anticlimactic and disappointing end.

    Kevin Ould
    Probably my least favourite Burke novel so far in the series Not bad but not great.

    Another in Vachss over the top tough guy Burke novels that is too pulpy to be quality, but just enough to keep me entertained.

    There are only a few left in this series I missed the family but it was a good read The ending was a little weird but the rest of the story than made up for it.

    Lorena Drapeau
    not my favorite style or storyline but i ended up fairly amused by it.

    I ve read several of Vachss s books, and this is without doubt my least favorite.

    Great book, continues with Vachss s agenda.

    Pretty decent read as Burke is again on his own Has a bit different feel that the other books but still good.
