Burke. Ex-con. Mercenary. Urban survivalist. Career criminal. Scar-carrying member of that vast underground tribe, Children of the Secret. And, some whisper, the city's finest hunter of predators. Perhaps because he was spawned from the same seed.
Burke is a man for hire. And Bondi is a private dancer, performing on command her special routine on a high-tech stage. When she learns who's really watching, she wants to buy some revenge - or so she says. Her snake-hipped trail leads to an obsessed enforcer named Heather, and her boss, Kite, who blackmails Burke into taking on an ugly job of investigation. Kite is a professional debunker, specializing in allegations of child sexual abuse. "False" allegations, he says. Witch hunts. But now he may have stumbled across the case of his career - the real thing. And he needs a man who knows something about witches. He finds Burke.
Dark, edgy, unflinching, False Allegations is Andrew Vachss reporting from ground zero...and Burke at his most dangerous.
