    Don't disagree, but I can't recall, now at least, any darker books than Vachss early Burke novels! His brooding soul and disenfranchisement and the bleak settings of his home and community! Oh my! Sad to discover that Mr. Vachss has started to mainstream Burke. Also thought that early Scudder, before he -- gasp! -- got married again and settled down, had that similiar black/bleak feel.
