characters,that make up the "fun" part of the book. It was very topical
in dealing with Post menaupausal disease and how is used as a defense
against murder and as an insanity plea. (you may recall the Houston housewife who used this defense). The District Attorney and his
family have appeared in other Tanenbaum books and they provide the reader
with a wealth of side and sub plots and other machinations, that keeps the story moving in a very enjoyable pace. As horrible as the central
issue is, the murder of three young children by a distraught mother, the
crime is dealt with in a very professional manner and the principals are
very reaalistically protrayed. I highly recommend this book. It is a quick read. Some very interesting issues and some very surprising and
unexpected developments occur along the crooked path to justice.

Tanenbaum has created the perfect summer thriller.
Tanenbaum has created the perfect summer thriller. A shadowy WASPish group, together with an even more shadowy Islamic terrorist cell conspire to change the world as we know it. Aided by former Harlem gangsters and a Chechen amazon warrior the plan cannot fail. Of course on the othe rside we have the courageous District Attorney Butch Karp, and his private eye wife Marlene and their twins, his daughter Lucy, an undercover translator, his memory-impaired father-in-law and a baker who survived the Nazi death camps to produce the 'finest cherry cheese coffee cake in the five boroughs.' If that weren't enough they are aided by a couple of saints-one Christian and the other Muslim. In spite of the fact it sounds a bit like Mom and Dad Save the World, and the outcome is never in doubt, it is cleverly plotted and thoroughly entertaining.Was this review helpful?
