Publisher's Summary

New York District Attorney Butch Karp goes head-to-head with a crooked wannabe mayor, the rap underworld, and rogue churchmen in yet another pile-driving thriller in this New York Times best-selling series.

When a rap impresario is gunned down in his limo in New York City, it appears that gang-related violence has reared its ugly head once again. But nothing's as it seems in this virtuoso thriller from Robert K. Tanenbaum.

For a start, there's Andrew Kane, a man with terrible secrets, who wants to be mayor and control the power elite like pawns. In edition, the Catholic Church is about to face some secrets of its own when Karp's wife, Marlene, rehabilitating at a Taos, New Mexico, art colony, stumbles upon a sex abuse murder scandal brewing at a church retreat.

Back in New York, evidence surfaces connecting Rogue Priests to murdered kids. Karp attempts to untangle a web of violence and corruption that threatens his career, and the lives of his family.

    "Vintage Tanenbaum"

    Winding, convoluted plot with good character development (including all the old favorite characters, Butch, Marlene, Lucy and the twins). Too bad this was an abridged version. Well worth hearing nonetheless, particularly for Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi fans.

    "Disappointing"

    The story was very predictable and the writing bordered on corny. The reading didn't do anything to add to the marginal book. Bottom line, it wasn't worth the time or money for this one.

    "Predictable"

    Maybe because it was abridged, the plot seemed to stagger from one far fetched crisis to the next. I wouldn't recommend this audiobook.

    "Unabridged, please!!"

    I love the Tanenbaum series too much to listen to an unabridged version! His "digressions" and descriptions are what make his novels a rich and fascinating mix. How could you understand the characters without it?
