Months after a brutal double homicide in uptown Manhattan shocks the city, sensational newspaper headlines herald the arrest and indictment of Felix Acevedo, a shy Bronx teenager who confessed to the horrific crimes. But downtown, in the district attorney's office, Butch Karp is seething.

No sooner does he bask in the relief of successfully closing the case on murderous imam Sharif Jabbar than he is thrust into the center of a high-profile prosecution that threatens the integrity of his office. An ambitious young assistant district attorney, seeking career advancement, cuts corners to indict Acevedo, disregarding Karp's fundamental rule: Never charge the accused unless the evidence leads inexorably to proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Now, damned by a coerced confession and a frenzied media bent on lynching him, Acevedo sits in jail while a vicious killer stalks the city.

Karp's wife, Marlene Ciampi, one half of the crime-fighting family proclaimed by the media, hits the streets for clues that will save the unjustly accused defendant. What she discovers puts her on the trail of the true perpetrator - a drug-addicted psychopath with an ax to grind - and a disgruntled police detective who is willing to lie, withhold evidence, and kill to be labeled a hero. But it also puts her in the center of a dangerous race to be the last man standing and if she's not careful, one of the other players will take the prize.

From the gruesome crime scene to a trial that will leave listeners on the edge of their seats, Robert K. Tanenbaum's unstoppable novel unfolds at breakneck speed as Karp and Ciampi fight for justice in a dramatic and challenging case that will thrill listeners to the bone.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 2/15/2014

    " This was great reading. A man has confessed to three brutal murders, two in Manhattan. Karp's office has indicted him for the two. Ciampi, who is restless with the kids being more adult and no longer needing her, decides she will defend him in the third. As she begins investigating the charges, she realizes he is innocent and explains why to Karp. His office begins to investigate and things progress from there. It is fast moving and intelligently written. All in all a great way to spend a summer's day. "

    " Another great Butch Karp thriller! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 2/6/2014

    " I love to follow the exploits of the Family Karp...a lot of great moral philosophy hidden in the storyline...always entertaining; always enlightening...Butch and Marlene are involved with righting a wrong indictment and bring those truly responsible to justice...excellent as always!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 1/26/2014

    " Good legal drama. Easy read. Would have rated it 4 1/2 if they allowed halves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/24/2014

    " He finally got back to the basics and it really worked this time. No more weird terrorists attacks and the family acting like superheros. Just an honest story told well and the characters actually seemed human instead of wooden. Never will be the best series ever but enjoyable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Margaret | 1/23/2014

    " Truly disappointing. I usually enjoy by this author, even those in this series,but this one was boring and read like he wrote it with very little thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Meyer | 1/20/2014

    " a most interesting investigative/judicial book...great continual character development "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taly | 1/18/2014

    " First time I came across one of Tenenbaum's books. Reading it, I thought that this is not just another thriller, but a book that actually leaves you with food for thought. In a way the book explores another point of view on capital punishment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh | 12/28/2013

    " Seemed like it ended half way through. I expected the story lines to continue and hit the Epilogue which tied everything up in a few pages. A great book, but disappointing compared to his other novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosemary A. | 11/26/2013

    " Burce and Marlene have stopped hunting terrorists for this book and are back to solveing old fashion murders and putting the bad guys in jail. And all without their strange friends. It was good to get back to the things that they do so well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter | 11/21/2013

    " THIS BOOK IS A LAWYER MYSTERY. THIS IS A BOOK THAT I LIKED VERY MUCH. FOR ME THE TWISTS AND TURNS OF THE PLOT WERE JUST AN ABSOLUTE JOY. AS USUAL THE CHARACTERS ARE ALSO FOR ME ANYWAY JUST GREAT. THIS IS A BOOK THAT I HIGHLY RECOMEND. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki Papworth | 11/16/2013

    " No. 23 of Butch & Marlene "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Kilburn | 9/29/2013

    " The way this book starts and goes from there, I was "outraged" and almost quit reading it--convicting an obviously innocent person. I'm glad I kept reading! I might have to read more from this author... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lianne | 1/19/2013

    " I've read all of the books in this series and I was quite disappointed by this one. There was very little action/interaction. There was a moral and it was a good one but was overly preachy and prolonged. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charlee | 1/11/2013

    " Ok Mr. Tanenbaum, this was incredibly mediocre. Maybe you need your ghostwriter back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 12/9/2012

    " Liked this more straightforward follow one case with its twists and turns and a small backstory n bullying "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ruth Vanderhart | 9/18/2012

    " Tannenbaum's Butch Karp series started off with some pretty readable thrillers, but the recent ones have been mediocre at best, and this one is the worst of the lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cjdiblasi | 8/7/2012

    " Characters always interesting. Reads a little too much like a cop/lawyer TV show-with major social and criminal problem fixed in 300 pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Ansell | 5/29/2012

    " Love all of his books. One of my very favorite authors! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daniel | 4/30/2012

    " Same old story lines. nothing funny. nothing surprising. Only bright spot was gilgamesh scaring a few people and protecting marlene. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 4/1/2012

    " fast read--light on story line, but heavy on descriptions of rape and murder "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie Dykhouse | 12/11/2011

    " Good mix of history,ethics,murder and mayhem! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynette Barfield | 6/15/2011

    " This is not quite the same as the other Karp-Ciampi books. It doesn't include the usual denizens of the streets, and also has less complicated 0plot. It is still a good book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mhd | 5/26/2011

    " I didn't finish this one. I couldn't take the content and it was starting awfully slowly. I don't like it when people with disabilities are being taken advantage of nor the nature of the other crimes. "
