He can beat them to death the taciturn Chickasaw named Tracker He really does They are sworn siblings bound together by their history of abuse and their thirst or vengeance against the institutions that damaged them We hate them All of them is the motto of this band of brothers They have a code sort of Sometimes they only kill wrong doers but then they abandon that to knock off two strippers at their club one of whom is a Fed plant Vachss has a personal obsession with child abuse He is an advocate Make Your Own Pixel Art for children and he has a hatredor those who hurt them Let us all very seriously and without irony applaud him TABU for his very necessary work in this domain That being said shoehorning these things into every damn novel he writes does not makeor good Parinamam ennal പരിണാമം എന്നാല് fiction Do they have Mary Sues in noiriction I Mistakes (Mistakes Trilogy, feel like the author isantasizing about getting his vengeance upon abusers by imagining himself as Cross These books serve as revenge porn Please Share My Wife With Me for Vachss and I suppose those who read him as well Don t get me wrong it s a subject that should be addressed again and again but not as clumsily as it is hereThis book also contains some of the weirdest writing about hip hop I have ever came across There is a brief subplot where a character murders a Chicago rapper and Vachss summation of the geography of the rap world East and West they go to the death to prove who s the best Only thing they agree on is there can t be no rest you see the picture I m paintingor you sounds like it was written by a Martian An out of touch old white Martian And his African American dialogue is eeesh Vachss lives in New York he s a lawyer The Cruel Collection for troubled and abused kids his wife was a prosecutor he has been around tough and dangerous people And yet his bizarro grimdark underworld characters are lifeless and unbelievable The crimes they commit are pointless and clumsy It s bad Just badI am not certain if it is intentional but there is a sort of scienceiction Got Parts? feel to the setting Chicago apparently has a miles deep junkyard that the Cross Crew run as their personaliefdom why which they roam in their custom Shark Car an armor clad super vehicle painted in urban camo did a Divine Grace (Divine Creek Ranch, five year old boy write this I guess this shit isrom the comic book Whatever it is dumb as hell There is also a real estate scam subplot that is totally uninterestingAll that being said this is a book I just couldn t put down It was so awkward and weird and awful that I enjoyed it People I respect like Vachss so I keep picking him up and I keep Kept failing to be impressed but this one is awful to an absolutely baroue extent So yeah read it I guess The entire time I was reading Urban Renewal Ielt like I was missing something like there was an inside joke I wasn t privy to It s a rustrating read one that wanders all over the place with only the barest sense of cohesion The blurb s misleading and that s the most rustrating thing of all Buying up the houses is only a minor part of the story There s something in there about manufacturing a turf war another thing about Cross being on someone s shit list and while the beginning scene does eventually get tied into the overall story it takes a while and then the thread gets lost in the muck of this story Oh And let s not Camp Tiger forget the unnecessary backstory and the lack of chapters It s like Vachss wants you to read Urban Renewal in one sitting only I kept putting it down Cross is pretty much a blank canvas and that s okay I didn t mind theact the man had. E you want to go unless you're willing to risk it being the last place you go The crew is notorious or its deadly efficiency and its disinterest in anything but money So why has it.
Cross and his crew are back and irmly placed in Chicagoalbeit not a Chicago tied to specific streets etc some liberties are taken with geographyUptown plays a recurring part but not my Uptown the public housing high rises are gone and the strip clubs on Rush Street disappeared long before the high rises did But no one caresAs always Vachss has created a The abbots house family of choice at the core of which are survivors of severe childhood abuse children drugged tortured and abandoned to the justice system children trained to kill children who were trained as cageightersall lead by Cross who has a murky back story but clearly had no The Eagle Of The Ninth family and was raised by State institutions All are on the wrong side of the law working as urban mercenaries But they are always on the right side of morality at least by their own code and as we dig into the book that moral code becomes ours as readersThis series is shaping up a little differently than either the Burke series or Aftershock which is soon to add a second volume and this become a third series The Cross books seem not to be as linear Jumping back andorth in time character back stories earlier events the crew was involved in and action among minor characters which happens off stage all mean that you need to pay attentionBut in the end juggling all the plot lines is well worth it as Vachss pulls you along page after page to see how the crew is going to survive and hopefully profit Storm Kings (Song of the Aura, from it s latest challenges Not a typical VachssI m used to the Burke series which arcs towards the moral This was a self centered book than I expected Sparsely written and lots of random violence Excellent tale but not the greatest back story Not sure I m aan of this group i The plots get a little convoluted and difficult to ollow at times but the message stays strong clear and constant Urban Renewal is the second installment in a new paperback original series originally conceived as a comic book series or Darkhorse I believe Faith in the Fog of War featuring the ulta lethal Cross crew Urban Renewal is an episodic novel thateatures a duplicitous stripper the political machinations within a crime syndicate an aspiring pimp urban gangbangers street racers and neo Nazis Fantastic comic book elements combine with gritty urban realism Urban Renewal is an action packed Nystrom Atlas of World History (2008 Update) fast paced read or listen I checked out the Dreamscapes audio dramatization My only complaint is that sometimes plot lines shift too uickly and the book ends with head scratching abruptness Nonetheless I m very much lookingorward to the third installment Drawing Dead due out later this month Bodice Rippers from Vintage CrimeBlack Lizard This book is so bad that it isunny The text is mostly dialogue and rarely has stilted and exposition jammed supposedly hard boiled speech been inflicted upon the reading public Every voice in the book sounds like the same E-mail Websites foul mouthedive year old trying to sound tough The plot is scattershot and meandering with pages of backstory inserted simply to explain a throwaway one line reference Such as it is it concerns the violent pursuits of a gang of super competent criminals run by a cold eyed assassin named Cross Vachss wants us to like this ridiculous broadly painted gaggle of preposterous stereotypes the sueaky voiced huge guy named Rhino Tiger the snarling lipstick lesbian who wanders around with throwing knives strapped to her leg Princess the damaged man child who dresses like a lamboyant gay man in the hopes that someone will gay bash him so. Chicago the reigning #1 city in homicides has no shortage of deadly gangs And all those gangs know well that the Cross crew occupies a cinderblock bunker called Red 71 the last plac.
