When Dirty Warren, the criminal-court newspaper vendor afflicted with Tourette's Syndrome, is charged with murdering socialite Rene Hanson, Marlene Ciampi investigates. Marlene's findings throw doubt on the case, but she is ignored by power-hungry and press-happy Westchester County DA Harley Chin, who is intent on doing whatever it takes to convict Dirty Warren, with the encouragement of powerful political forces.

As Marlene fights to clear Warren, her investigation pulls her into the sordid world of high-priced escort services and the revelation of a dark secret that could cost her life.

Meanwhile, Karp is trying to convict Sharif Jabbar, the iman of a Harlem mosque, for his part in the diabolical attack on the New York Stock Exchange, as well as the brutal stabbing death of heroic Miriam Juma, who tried to stop his evil plot. Karp must also battle forces within the government who would prefer that the Jabbar case went away, as well as the shadowy power group Sons of Man, who are desperate to keep their identities and purpose hidden.

Fast-paced and filled with exhilarating twists and turns, Betrayed is Tanenbaum at his very best.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/18/2014

    " Karp and family are always entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim | 1/11/2014

    " Robert Tanenbaum is a much better writer when he sticks less with black muslims and more with, "fixers, blackmailers, torettes syndrome, murderers and vigilantes!" Too bad to much emphasis is placed on muslims and not enough on the other excellent plots. 5 of 10 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dad | 1/8/2014

    " A good read,but unrealistic at times, even for NYC. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vannessagrace Vannessagrace | 1/5/2014

    " Betrayed has a brilliantly written courtroom drama. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikeegan43 | 12/30/2013

    " I've read every one of the books in this series. Great story, incredible characters. I'm tempted to go on a paperback spree and get all of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carole Anderson | 12/26/2013

    " Not quite of full of the usual action, but still well written a great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 12/26/2013

    " This book got better as it went along...didn't realize it was part of a series of the same characters so I was starting anew but it was entertaining. Not very realistic from a legal perspective but it was something different. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheila | 12/9/2013

    " Tanenbaum should have quit when he split with his cousin. These new books suck. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki Papworth | 11/26/2013

    " No. 22 of Butch & Marlene. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynne | 11/19/2013

    " It may be time for Tannenbaum to weed out a few of his recurring characters. Oh, and maybe quit already with the terrorism scare stuff. I think it is totally acceptable for him to just have a good old-fashioned murder case now and again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherree | 10/20/2013

    " I had almost stopped reading Tanenbaum's books, because I felt like I was reading the same one over and over. I'm glad I read this one, though. It was nice to read one that didn't have a member of the Karp-Ciampi clan in mortal danger. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 7/20/2013

    " I really like the Butch and Marlene series ( this is the 15th or so in series) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tracy Dickson | 7/7/2013

    " I was so bored with the retelling of the backstory for about twenty different characters that I stopped reading and moved on to another book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 6/1/2013

    " I really like all his books, like the exploration of how we try terrorists in this modern age. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 2/11/2013

    " Title is actually Betrayed,notBetrayal. Actually, would rate it 3 and a half stars. Interesting book,still focused around terrorism, but shorter and I enjoyed it more than recent efforts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hrn1947 | 1/21/2013

    " Not bad, but after waiting this long. I expected more.The usual list of charactures are mentioned, but it's a Marlene book. Also the part about Goldie and the assesian was pretty hokey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 11/3/2012

    " Robert Tanenbaum has a point of view, and he never misses an opportunity to hit you over the head with it. I found some of his sections about the law to be pedantic. Nevertheless, he's a good writer and Butch Karp and his wife Marlene are great characters. The mystery in this one was really good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 10/26/2012

    " This is one of my favorite series, but I felt like something was missing on this one. The plot was great, but I missed the interaction between Butch and Marlene and the kids. Loved learning more about Dirty Warren though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hank Lawrence | 2/25/2012

    " Fun... but too much of a backstory. I should have read the preceding novels first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elli | 12/25/2011

    " Fast action, finely crafted plot. There were xome holes in the situations and characters. Things were either too too good or too too bad. A little bit too far into an unreality. Yet that didn't stop me from being reluctant to put the book down until I finished the final page! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 7/2/2011

    " Typical Karp book but a little more strident in its tone. Some plots were solved so randomly that I hope the next book explains them more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Meyer | 3/30/2011

    " ...book by book I become a bigger fan of Roger (Butch) Karp and his band of characters...last 1/2 of the story moved so fast I could hardly stay up with it!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenene | 3/8/2011

    " I love every single one of the characters in this series. From David Grale and the mole people who live under the subway to Marlene Ciampi, the wife who has learned to ask for help defending abused women! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dad | 3/6/2011
