In Bad Faith, two gripping story lines that could have been torn out of today’s headlines meet at the intersection of religion and medical ethics. In the first, Butch battles to convict the parents of a deceased boy for failing to seek medical attention for their son, who believed, wrongly, that prayer was the answer for healing his rare but treatable brain disease. At the same time, Marlene investigates the charismatic demagogue Reverend McCord, who has an undeniable grasp on the parents.
Meanwhile, a beautiful but deadly Russian incarcerated assassin, Nadya Malovo, works with Karp from behind bars to prevent a violent attack on New York City. But she harbors a secret vendetta against Karp for interfering in her past crimes, and can’t be trusted....
This action-packed, edge-of-your-seat thriller will leave fans listening late into the night.

Robert K. Tanenbaum is one of my favorite authors. He delivers a good story in Bad Faith. However, his longer books (Malice, Betrayed, Escape) are truly memorable. If you have followed the series, this continues the story line in an entertaining way. If you are considering your first Tanenbaum listen, choose Malice instead. This was my first listen to a Peter Berkrot performance, it was solid, but not quite what I expected. For these novels, I prefer Mel Foster or Charles Legget as the narrator. Overall, a good listen, but not a great one.
Obvious author change. Plot replaced by narrative blobs. Out of character actions and statements.
It has turned me off from subsequent Tanenbaum books. I understand that this is the first in the series with a different ghostwriter.
Only if you have been reading the series from the start. Not much new in the live of the Karps. It was really a continuation of the last book in the series.
Would probably read the next book in the series but need some new material to make it interesting.
Performance was fine.
