Butch Karp's career prosecuting New York's worst criminals takes a chilling turn when a series of ghastly child murders opens a window into the city’s hellish underworld. Karp and love-interest Marlene Ciampi pursue a psychopath known to his young victims as the Bogeyman, but what they find is more threatening than a lone predator. To stop the evil they unearth will take more than just courage in the courtroom; the two will need to follow a sinister trail into New York City's darkest corners, where the law is powerless to protect them.

I thought this was a really good story. Lots of tension and fast paced. Although one of his earlier books which I had read many years ago, it was well worth the $ to hear it again.
I found this to be one of the more realistic of the Karp/Ciampi series as compared to some of the newer novels. I've always enjoyed Tanenbaum's books and style of writing. This book as with almost all contains everything I look for in a good thriller. I also like his twisted ending where one of the "good guys" ends up being a "bad guy".
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Unlike a lot of reviewers I enjoyed the first two books in this series enough to track down and read the ghost writer of the early Tanenbaum books (Michael Gruber). This time, not so much. Okay, the plot's so far over the top that my nose bled. But hey, that's true of the first two in this series that I'd liked. And yeah, once again Gruber has written a high farce, which like puns, appeal to a thin audience. Hey, I like them both.
The problem with shark jumping though is that a tooth can snag, tear, and release all of a plot's air. That happens here and unlike its predecessors, "Immoral Uncertainty" is just ordinary. But hey, ordinary's a lot better than mediocre, bad, or awful, right? I recommend that you start this series with "No Lesser Plea" and decide if you have an appetite for the bombastic Michael Gruber. It's an acquired taste and one that after "Immoral Uncertainty" I think I've lost.
