Publisher's Summary

The shooting death of a rap mogul is the first link in a sinister chain ensnaring New York District Attorney Butch Karp. With his wife and daughter on a New Mexico retreat, Karp is left to fend for his teenaged sons and himself. Descending into the hip-hop underworld to prosecute a killer, Karp comes head-to-head wih Andrew Kane, a powerful would-be mayor whose corrupt web of influence leads Karp to unveil a shocking church sex-abuse scandal. In a world where secrets can be buried for an often-deadly price, Karp discovers there is no safe haven.

Good Writer - Forced Plot

I like Butch Karp and his entourage of characters. I like Tanenbaum's ideas and the unpredictability of his narrative. But so much happens in the last 20% of this thing that it became distracting. I'll probably buy the next in this series particularly if it's read by Richard Ferrone. If you're looking for a total escape from the day's chores or commute - okay, that's what Hoax does.

Very good not a HOAX

I think this may be the best book so far in this series. Strong characters, strong plot, and great narration made for a wonderful listening experience.

Loved it!

This was the second listening, and it still was fresh and spellbinding. 1 star off on performance as the narrator tended to use the child voice for every character. 1 star off on the story as it would present pieces out of order then back-up multiple times to cover what had happened from different character perspective, instead of weaving the perspectives chronologically.
