              The man known only as Cross and his skilled team of urban mercenaries are back (Blackjack,Urban Renewal), but this time they are on the defensive as they receive a series of cryptic messages. The question is, are they being warned or hunted? A VINTAGE CRIME/BLACK LIZARD ORIGINAL.... Chicago the reigning number one city in homicides has no shortage of deadly gangs. They all know the Cross Crew occupies a cinderblock bunker called Red 71, and it's the last place you'll ever want to go, unless you're willing to risk it being the last place you do go. The Crew is notorious for its deadly efficiency and its disinterest in anything but money. Why, then, would anyone be foolhardy enough to threaten them and more importantly their loved ones? As Cross catches the scent of a far-reaching conspiracy in the making, he realizes that it all connects to an unexplained event from the past, a massacre in which he emerged inexplicably unscathed, except for the blue mark on his face that pulses when danger is near.

              Once a mercenary, later an assassin, and now living a different life, Dell has bone-marrow-deep loyalty and protective instincts that know no bounds when it comes to his wife, Dolly, a former battle-field nurse, and their close-knit group of Dolly s friends and Dell s allies. Whe...n Dolly receives a thinly veiled threat, Dell reverts to his old ways to untangle the background of a prominent local figure, George Byron Benton, whose actions have awakened Dell s obsessive need for security. This target combines the deadly patience of a gila monster and a complex agenda including a public life that s all elaborate disguise. To penetrate Benton s dense facade, Dell methodically works his way through the only reliable source of news in the area a blog called Undercurrents. If he manages to track Benton down, Dell will have to decide how far he is willing to go to recapture the sense of safety that Benton has stolen. With Andrew Vachss s trademark razor-sharp dialogue and inimitable prose style, SignWave the third entry in the Aftershock series is guaranteed to reverberate powerfully long after it has been read. From the Hardcover edition.

              A VINTAGE CRIME/BLACK LIZARD ORIGINAL A hit man stalks his mark at a race track. A sociopath crosses every moral boundary to become a published author. An ex-mercenary obsessively defends his perimeter from a dangerous interloper. A man for hire grudgingly accepts help from a tee...nage girl to track an online predator. In a dystopian future, young people struggle for survival underground, forming themselves into vicious gangs with only the graffiti of the last journalists accepted as truth. Andrew Vachss collects twenty tight, powerful stories--all from the past decade of his career, including some now published for the first time--along with an original screenplay. Together, they form Mortal Lock, a searing portrait of the criminal underworld, with both its depravity and humanity on display.

              Dell, a former mercenary, and his wife, Dolly, a former battlefield nurse, believe they have finally found a place of peace in a deceptively idyllic small town on the Oregon coast. But early one morning, just before daybreak, a body washes up on the town's pristine beach. The dea...d man's shaven skull has been torn open, and his upper body is covered with neo-Nazi tattoos. The police quickly pick up Homer, a walking wounded schizophrenic who has been showing off a wristwatch he says God just gave him--a watch engraved with a symbol that exactly matches one of the dead man's tattoos. Regardless of the fact that Homer could never have inflicted such damage on a man twice his weight and half his age, he is immediately arrested because the D.A. is desperate to close the case before it negatively affects tourism--the town's only industry. Mack, the director and sole employee of the local mental-health outreach program, is outraged but helpless. He confides in Dolly, who shares his outrage. But with her local connections and her husband's ruthless skills, Dolly is anything but helpless. As the search for the real killer pulls them deeper into the world of hate groups, Dell is forced to share some of his dark arts knowledge with Mack. Together they discover the treasonous fog of evil that hovers not only above their town but also above America itself. With this latest installment in his new Aftershock series, Andrew Vachss reminds us once again--in his inimitable, visceral prose--that for some, peace comes at a very high price. From the Hardcover edition.

              Andrew Vachss' writing has been described as red-hot and serious as a punctured lung ( Playboy ), hypnotically violent ... made up of equal part broken concrete block and razor wire ( Chicago Sun-Times ), and short and choppy, like the ticking of a time bomb ( Seattle Post-Intell...igencer ). This new digital-only edition collects eleven of Vachss's life-at-ground-zero comics stories, brought to life by an outstanding lineup of the industry's most talented writers and artists. This exciting book also contains a gallery of covers from the original Hard Looks series, as well as a cover by Geof Darrow, award-winning artist and creator of such titles as Shaolin Cowboy, and co-creator of The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, and Hard Boiled. The Hard Looks preview features story pages from Drive-By by Joe Lansdale and artist Gary Gianni.
