Returning to New York after years on the run, Burke is forced to step out of the shadows to investigate the murder of his own teenage daughter, and heads for Long Island, where he comes face to face with a depraved killer.

Brilliance Audio
It’s been years since Burke has been home, years since he’s seen his “family” and worked in the underbelly of New York City. Although his appearance has changed, his reputation grown dusty, and his wallet thin, his skills and his crew remain razor sharp. So when he is contacted by a mob boss to investigate the murder of his illegitimate daughter, Vonni, Burke takes the job and begins searching for an unspeakably vicious killer. Posing as a casting director looking for tomorrow’s stars, Burke reaches out to the high school students who knew Vonni, and may know the identity of the killer. Before long he unearths a perverse enterprise — a young director pursuing a brutal new type of cinema vérité.“Only Child is reliable Vachss, another page-ripping underground procedural with harsh relevance and prose that qualifies the real-life children’s lawyer for his own adjective. (Vachssatious?)” —The Seattle Times“The plot is perfect, the investigation is compelling, and the payoff is bittersweet but satisfying.” —The Jacksonville Sun“Vachss’s prose is never less than hypnotic. . . . He’s a master at shedding light on grime and human and urban decay.” —Wilmington News Journal
