Overview

Book Two of the bestselling Butch Karp legal thriller series: the prosecutor goes after Cold War terrorists and finds himself tangled up with the CIA, the FBI, and the Mafia

Butch Karp has never shied away from a difficult case, and when Croatian terrorists hijack a plane and kill an NYPD bomb squad cop in a bomb blast, he’s eager to prosecute the high-profile killers. But Karp’s aggression puts him at risk when his investigations uncover messy government secrets. Certain elements of the FBI and CIA don’t want the trial to go forward, and are willing to go to extremes to sabotage Karp’s case. Mired in local bureaucracy and international intrigue, only Karp’s dogged determination—along with the help of his crime-fighting partner and girlfriend, Marlene Ciampi—can once again deliver justice. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert K. Tanenbaum including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Former assistant DA Tanenbaum ( No Lesser Plea ) enjoys an insider's perspective on the court system that provides an unforgettable fictional portrait of crime and punishment in New York City. Exposing this complex legal underworld with skill and energy, Tanenbaum characterizes the city's court as a hornet's nest of intrigue, ambition and villainy, where a few decent workers must fight constantly to preserve their integrity. The protagonist, Roger Karp, is a tough, Brooklyn-born DA trying to prosecute a gang of Croatian nationalists who hijacked a plane and killed a cop with a booby-trapped bomb. Karp's assistant and lover, Marlene Ciampi, stumbles across information connecting Karavitch, the head terrorist, with Nazi war crimes. Far from the idealistic freedom fighter the media believe him to be, Karavitch was involved in the slaughter of an entire village in Yugoslavia during the war. It might seem a simple case, but N.Y.'s Catholic Archdiocese has hired a top lawyer to defend the terrorists, and the police department wants to let these cop killers off scot-free. Karp realizes something is seriously wrong when FBI and CIA agents team up with a Miami crime syndicate to undermine the case against Karavitch and his gang. Helping Karp in the investigation are two memorable characters--Vinson Talcott Newbury, the ultimate WASP snob, and Ray Guma, a smooth-talking ``Italian stallion'' DA with whom no woman is safe. Tanenbaum has written a damning indictment of our court system and an entertaining expose of the DA's office. (Sept.)
Library Journal
In September of 1976, five members of the Croatian National Freedom Party who hijack a Milwaukee-bound airline surrender to New York authorities, who want to prosecute for a hidden bomb which killed a policeman. Assistant District Attorney Roger ``Butch'' Karp ( No Lesser Plea , LJ 7/87) heads the investigation, aided by his beloved co-worker, Marlene. Karp immediately runs into incredible and extensive complications involving CIA, FBI, Catholic Church, World War II, Yugoslavian, Israeli, and police cover-ups. Crammed full and sometimes difficult to follow, this is for larger collections.
