Publisher's Summary

When a promising actress from Spanish Harlem dies from a gunshot wound in the Tribeca penthouse apartment of an eccentrically famous Broadway producer, it is up to New York D.A. Roger "Butch" Karp and his hard-charging, crime-fighting wife, Marlene Ciampi, to champion the murdered actress's cause. Karp - outraged by defense tactics to destroy the young woman's reputation and the mysterious death of the assistant D.A. assigned to the case - decides to personally prosecute the case and expose the "Big Lie" defense.

With Marlene's assistance, Karp is determined that money, threats, notoriety, and a high-powered defense attorney and his legion of experts will not prevail over justice. Then Karp's daughter Lucy goes missing.

Horrible

After many years of listening to books, I came across an author and a reader that made me quit listening half way through Part 1. The characters are unbelievable and the reader's sometimes falsetto sent shivers up my back. Save your money and your time.

A Fine Thriller

What sets Robert K. Tannenbaum's works apart are his intriguing characters and the sense of decency and morality of his protagonists. This book interweaves several subplots, mostly successfully, and succeeds in holding the reader's attention throughout. Good triumphs over evil, but not without a heck of a struggle!

Capture

I have followed this series from the beginning. This is the best one yet. It was time to take Kane and his gang out. Now I am wondering about that very bad woman that got way? I am looking forward Mr. Tanenbaums next book.

Timely Tanenbaum Tomes

This was a fast paced, exciting, and intellectually stimulating read. It’s amazing the foresight of Mr. Tanenbaum to write such a story that is relevant all these years later. My goal is to read every book written by Tannenbaum to further my education and have a hell of a good time!😍

Karp has jumped the shark

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Comic book fans. It was just ridiculous, but if you can suspend disbelief... fantasy fans?

What could Robert K. Tanenbaum have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I'm done. I'm never buying another one of his books. He can stand on his head. I'm not buying it.

Which character – as performed by Charles Leggett – was your favorite?

I didn't have a favorite.

Any additional comments?

I just kept repeating "Really?!" like on Saturday Night Live... I just could not believe the garbage that passed for a plot in this book. I've read every unabridged book I could get my hands on by Tanenbaum, but it's over. Don't call me.

Too long

I usually love the Butch Karp series, but this one just didn't hold my interest. Narrator is fantastic. It's the writing on this one.
