In the seventh book of the popular Butch Karp legal thriller series, a diplomat's murder reveals a world of genocide and retribution.
A Turkish diplomat in New York City is gunned down in broad daylight, and all signs point to an ancient blood feud. The suspected gunman is Armenian. His alleged motive is to avenge the slaughter of Armenians by Turks generations before. But prosecutor Butch Karp has never accepted the easy answer, and he soon realizes the facts of this murder are more complicated than they seem. To close the case, Karp and his investigator wife, Marlene, must infiltrate a cross-section of New York society, while fending off crooks and madmen from every corner of the Big Apple and the world beyond.

Probably not. The Karp series is like eating a cheeseburger. Great when your hunger but I don't want to eat the same burger twice.
Anything with Marlene as the focus. She sounds like way more of a woman than Karp is a guy.
Traber is fine. No complaints. He isn't my favorite narrator but he is OK.
Sure I laughed. Marlene is a trip.
I don't find Tanenbaum as good of a writer as Sandford or Flynn but he is good enough. This is book #6 in the series and Tanenbaum has finally slowed down telling the reader Karp is jewish and that Marlene is a catholic. Yep he does mention it some but why? To me it plays no part in the story. I could care less what religion the characters are.
