Claiming God commanded her to gruesomely murder her three small children, a radical political-science professor with a high-profile politician husband pleads insanity, leaving New York District Attorney Roger “Butch” Karp the arduous—and incredibly unpopular—task of proving that she’s not. Meanwhile, an American-born jihadist detonates a suicide bomb inside a Manhattan synagogue. A harrowing question links the violent crimes: Is there any defense for a killer who believes that committing murder is God’s will?

As Karp, his wife Marlene, their daughter Lucy, and a cast of eccentric accomplices begin a deadly manhunt, they uncover an intricate terrorist plot to paralyze New York’s emergency response system and cripple the economy. They must find an assassin known only as “The Sheik” before he orchestrates a bloody massacre that could devastate the country forever.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Lisa Garrett | 2/16/2014

    " I actually gave up on this book about 3/4 of the way through. It was long and not engaging -- his normal characters were getting very limited face time, and the family members are really what drive most of his books. This one felt like it was written by another author using Tanenbaum's characters. "

    " This was my first Tanenbaum book and I found it very confusing! Ther were at least 4 different plot lines from a court trial about a mother murdering her children to an Islamic terrorist plot. I wish he had just stuck with the trial as I found it very interesting!! "

    " If you like fast moving, testosterone laden novels this is for you. Tanenbaum is really good in this novel and he has written a good one here. His cast of characters are a compelling as ever. It is a fast-paced thriller that is a fun if escapiis read. "

    " As usual Tanenbaum gives a good story and holds ones interest. He also keeps his stories in line with the real world "
