i disagree about vachss. read the first 3 or 4 in the burke series (flood, as
someone mentioned already, is the first). shella, a non series, is also worthy.
most of what I've read of Vachss seems cartoonish and over the top. I found Shella to be the exception. an excellent work
everybody's comments about Ellroy are all on the mark
