Publisher's Summary

When a cop shoots down the son of a respected inner-city Baptist preacher, the community rises up in anger and demands to have the officer prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But there's something more than a call for justice at work here. There's a plot to bring down the city's police force through a conspiracy so vast and malicious that only Butch Karp, his wife, and his band of truth-seekers can untangle it.

    "Author Tanenbaum takes on those who use..."

    ...social justice as an excuse for criminality including murder. DA Butck Karp puts a cop killer on trial in Without Fear or Favor. This is only the second novel by Robert K Tanenbaum, but it is now obvious that he is firmly on the side of law ad order. It is also obvious that he can tell a great story. Without Fear or Favor offers strong suspense as well as lots of action inside and outside the courtroom. Tanenbaum takes on social and political issues of the day with moral clarity that is refreshing. It is an outstanding novel. Narration by Peter Berkrot is strong, but not as good as Bob Walter in his narration of Fatal Conceit. I highly recommend this book for those who like legal and political thrillers.

    23 of the 29 novels in this series are available at Audible. Only 2 of the 23 have received any Audible reviews. Only 9 of the 23 have received 50 or more ratings from Audible listeners. The Kindle versions of the novels in the series do no better. This is a great series. Maybe, just maybe, the author and publishers would receive more revenue from the series through promotion including price reductions.

    Story
    "Butch Karp - Need I say more?"

    It seems as though Robert Tanenbaum and Butch Karp have been around for ever. I started reading this series almost 30 years ago and for the most part have enjoyed every book. I guess it all depended on who his ghost writer was.
    Anyway, this book is written so well and the storyline is current. It deals with racial issues and the killing of black youths by white police. There is also some yellow journalism, a Reverend who likes to stir up trouble and a young man whose taken the name of Nat X but has absolutely nothing in common with the man he pretends to emulate. It's all smoke and mirrors to cover his own demented agenda.
    This book has it all, great police procedural taking the lead with equally good courtroom scenes. Vivid characters that you can "see" and and almost smell! Get the book and you'll understand!
    Peter Berkrot does an outstanding job narrating. One of the characters has Tourette's syndrome and he nails it perfectly. If you have an aversion to foul language this may not be the book for you.
    This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!
    If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
    Thank You.

    "Not bad"

    Not sure if the writer was on a mission toward the end. Great story, but not interested in personal opinions in the story.

    "Gripping story about clash between social activists and police"

    Great story that is very topical for what is currently happening in our society. I miss the longer novels from Tanenbaum and hope that we may see them again. Well worth the credit.
