Strega - Andrew Vachss

Burke is contacted by an old mafia acquaintance, who wants his help to remove the 'freak' harassing one of his relatives.

There's also a flashback to Burke going to jail.

The first job gets him involved with the redheaded unflatteringly named 'Strega', who has promised a little boy to get back a paedophile photograph so she can destroy it in front of him.

Burke's friends are keen to help - and Max's new girlfriend actually works with abused children, so can also offer assistance.

One angry man, one ring of scum going down.
