Best-selling author Robert K. Tanenbaum astonishes with Fury, his most explosive book yet in the staggeringly popular Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi series.
In Brooklyn, a female jogger is brutally raped, and the assailants are convicted and later exonerated by the Kings County DA. Now the guilty are filing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the city of New York, the police, and the two assistant DAs who tried the case. While the cops and the criminal justice system are under media assault and opportunist political demagoguery, Karp has suspicions that there is corruption within his own office.
Against a backdrop of Russian mobsters and corrupt lawyers, Butch and Marlene are on a mission to restore the system's lost dignity and bring the rapists to justice. All the while, terrorists are at it again, planning to blow the roof off Times Square on New Year's Eve. Alas, the Karp family finds itself in lethal jeopardy, and to survive, they must team up and fight their greatest battle yet.
Robert K. Tanenbaum has written a mindboggling thriller involving a web of corruption and courtroom confrontations. Fans of Butch Karp, as well as the classic New York crime drama, will find plenty to sink their teeth into with Fury.
More mayhem? Listen to another title in the Butch Karp - Marlene Ciampi series.

Since the first 1/3 of the book was taken up by explaining who/what happened in the previous books, I was slogging along until it began to pick up. Still not my fav, but tolerable. I don't know why the entire background of previous books had to be explained to the reader before the story could begin.
Not a Tannenbaum
Good pacing, good speed of reading, good emphasis
