This book is known as book 4 in the Burke series, however books 2,3, and 4 (Strega, Blue Belle, and Hard Candy) are the re-working of Andrew Vachss first novel "A Bomb Built in Hell". Vachss took the main charecter from that book, an ultimate hit man named Wesley, and introduced him into the Burke series/5. HARD CANDY is a human portrayal of an uncommon nature. No one thing contributes more to its value than its authenticity, but be forewarned, you will not find literary frills, polite language, soft corners of prose, soothing seams of dialogue, happy jingles or joyful songs, as it portrays the bleak world of institutional “bad guys”—administrators, trusted civil servants, and resident.

HARD CANDY tells Vinnie's story, LOVE ME LIKE A ROCK tells Austin's story, and BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE is the duology containing both novellas (and the latter will be available in paperback And the tweets and emails and messages started coming pretty much immediately: "When do we get a book about those two?"4/5.   But in "Hard Candy" Burke is depressed and withdrawn from the events of the last book, so there is a whole new level of despair. As if Burke weren't already a hard case!If you like Ellroy, if you enjoy minimalist prose that hits hard, if you like a hard-boiled noir that's ultra-bleak and smoky, Andrew Vachss is for you.5/5(5).

Vachss writing style hooked me from the first few paragraphs, and I reread the book a second time immediately when finished. Fast forward to now, and listening brought old memories and new feelings for Hard Candy. Phil Gigante does a superb job reading. A good book with great twist I did like the book overall. The narrator was very good. The book started off a little ruff. Then candy took over. The book ended up being a good book. I would recommend the book. The end has many twist. 5 people found this helpful.   "An easy recipe for hard candy. The hardest part is waiting for the sugar to reach the proper temperature. Be patient and use a candy thermometer for perfect candy. This recipe can easily be adjusted by using different flavored extracts and food colorings." Added to shopping list. Go to shopping list.
