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.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679766634, Paperback)

  In Footsteps of the Hawk Burke himself is in danger of becoming a victim.  Two rogue cops are stalking him.  The coolly seductive Belinda Roberts wants him to free a man charged with a grisly string of rape-murders. The brutal and half-crazy Detective Jorge Morales may be trying to frame Burke for the same crimes.  What ensues is a novel of high-wire suspense and nightmarish authenticity informed by an insider's knowledge of the city where everything—from flesh to other people's cellular phone numbers—is up for sale.
