    Robert Tanenbaum never ceases to keep my interest at a high level in his books. This story was, like all his books,a terrific and nail-biting mystery. He writes and brings his characters to life, much like DeMille used to. I hope Mr. Tanenbaum writes another mystery soon. If I had a choice of one author whose books never fail to be excellent and engrossing, I'ld select the gifted Robert Tanenbaum Please hurry with your next...

    Acclaimed voice performer Lee Sellars gives a tense, don-t-want-to-miss-a-word-of-it reading of Robert Tanenbaum's 17th thriller featuring Butch Karp and Marlene Ciampi. Tanenbaum is once again at the top of his game and on top of the news - he includes a subplot concerning the grabbing of a Karp family member by an Iraqi who plans to blow up Times Square on New Year's Eve. As if that weren't enough to worry about, Karp (now acting District Attorney) is looking at a million dollar suit filed by rapists who were originally convicted but later set free. Karp's sure corruption is rife within his own office as well as on the part of the lawyer who was instrumental in getting the rapists off. The media are on Karp's back, and terrorists trail him. Wife Marlene isn't at home eating bon-bons - she's working to exonerate a college prof accused of rape and she's also pitching in to help Karp who seems assaulted on every front. Tanenbaum has never set such a rapid paced scenario for this pair, and listeners will love it. - Gail Cooke

    The seventeenth Karp-Ciampi legal thriller is terrific

    Twelve years ago five Bedford Stuyvesant teenage gangbangers were convicted of raping twenty-eight years old new mother Liz Tyler when they caught her jogging from Brighton beach towards Coney Island they left her dead under a pier. After a decade behind bars for four of them, the one who turned witness had died Enrique Villalobos, a lifer at Rikers Island, confessed to the crime as the lone assailant Kings County DA Kristine Brennan admits that the only DNA found at the crime scene besides the victim matched that of Enrique. Politically ambitious attorney Hugh Louis demands the immediate release from prison of the Coney Island Four and persuades the oldest Jayshon Sykes to sue the city for $250 million...................... Since Brennan capitulated, Mayor-elect Denton demands New York's Acting District Attorney Butch Karp to defend the city. Meanwhile, Butch¿s wife Marlene Ciampi, defends visiting Russian Professor Alexis Michalik from the rape charge of NYU graduate student Sarah Ryder. While the married couple struggles with highly visible cases, they hear rumors that murderer David Grale, thought dead, is alive, and that terrorists plan to blow up Times Square at midnight on New Year's Eve...................... The seventeenth Karp-Ciampi legal thriller is terrific when the story line focuses on the two rape cases on the other hand the terrorists and Grale subplots seem cartoonish and unnecessary in comparison. The lead duet remains as fresh and solid as ever as they work difficult cases under the media spotlight and the heated political reactions to the negative publicity of being on the accused side of both fights. Though the ending is obvious, fans of the series will cherish this installment and look forward to the next one, already set up.................... Harriet Klausner
