In the ninth book of the popular Butch Karp legal thriller series, Karp goes up against a formidable defense attorney in a case that threatens to turn the city against itself.
Back as head of the district attorney's homicide bureau, Butch Karp comes up against one of his most bizarre cases yet. A series of racially motivated murders in Harlem prove to be the work of a wealthys uburbanite out to relive a twisted episode from his childhood. The killer's showboating defense attorney will stop at nothing to derail Karp's prosecution - even if it means igniting a race war. But while Karp relentlessly pursues the guilty, his wife, Marlene, risks everything when standing up for victims of domestic abuse crosses into vigilantism.

I think I would. This book was the most interesting to me of this series.
That's a tuff question. This book added a layer that I didn't feel in the other books of this series. I felt that Marlene was the major focus in this book. Marlene is a much more complex figure than Karp. Tanenbaum did well exploring with her character.
He is ok.
Yes it was. I almost did do that very thing but a Christmas party got in the way.
Tanenbaum did a nice job with this book.
