Publisher's Summary

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.

So far the best

Would you listen to Irresistible Impulse again? Why?

I think I would. This book was the most interesting to me of this series.

What other book might you compare Irresistible Impulse to and why?

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.

What about Traber Burns’s performance did you like?

He is ok.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was. I almost did do that very thing but a Christmas party got in the way.

Any additional comments?

Tanenbaum did a nice job with this book.
