Footsteps Of the Hawk - Andrew Vachss

Burke is caught in the middle of a conflict between two police officers, and isn't quite sure why - but knows it is bad.

He has to work out which one, if either, is not dodgy, or the least dodgy, anyway.

Meanwhile, the Prof is training a promising young fighter who has a chance to go a long way - and Burke and his team have a stake in the boy.

The roots of what is going down lie in the past of these particular police individuals.

Plenty of Pansy the giant mastiff here, too in more of Vachss' extremely spare styling.
