From the author of the acclaimed Burke private-eye series comes an ambitious and chilling novel that shows us not only what evil is, but where it comes from. For Shella is nothing less than a tour of evil's spawning ground, conducted by one of its natural predators. He is called "Ghost" because he is so nondescript as to be invisible and because he slays with such reflexive ease that he might be one of the dead. Once he traveled with a woman who was called "Shella" -- because those who had treated her as a horrendously ill-used child had tried to make her come out of her shell. Now Shella has vanished in a wilderness of strip clubs and peep shows, and Ghost is looking for her, guided by a killer's instinct and the recognition that can only exist between two people who have been damaged past the point of no return. The result is Andrew Vachss's most compelling work to date, the thriller reimagined as a bleak romance of the damned.… (mais)

Review: Shella by Andrew Vachss.

Shella was the third novel I have read by Andrew Vachss. In this book the author writes with clarity, intensity, and brutally to the point. The world he writes about is bleak, tough and ugly. He dares you to turn the pages on to the horrors of life, descending deeper past the place where nightmares arise beyond belief.

In his characters Ghost and Shella, we see the victims of an evil polite society many times refuse to believe exists violently transformed into a shadow of the evil which created them. Ghost’s search for his old partner seems only a damaged attempt to re-establish the only impression of a family he ever had and he goes about it the only way he knows how.

This is an interesting look into the life of a killer and how ruthlessly it happens out of necessity and survival. This book was hard to put down, keeping me reading the story in one setting. I strongly recommend Shella to anyone interested in crime fiction, mystery novels, or horror, as it has the elements of each, with that said, Enjoy….The ending awaits you….…

A true hardboiled gem. The first Vachss book I read and still my favorite. The language is taut and heartbreaking, and the story kicked me between the eyes. ( )
