Overview

From a New York Times–bestselling master with over one million copies in print: Prosecutor Butch Karp hunts a psychopath targeting the innocent.
 
He is the Bogeyman: a remorseless monster stalking the streets of New York in search of fresh victims—his chosen prey being children.
 
The killings are ghastly enough to shock lawyer Butch Karp, who thought he’d already seen the absolute worst of humanity in his work. So when a child abuse case and a homicide case seem to be connected, Karp and his colleague Marlene Ciampi find themselves delving into the darkest corners of New York’s underworld.
 
Their chosen prey? A cold-blooded predator whose twisted work has only just begun—and whose true motives will force Karp to decide how far he is truly willing to go to stop the horror.
 
Known to his fans as “one hell of a writer,” (New York Post) Robert K. Tanenbaum lends truthful, gritty authenticity to his legal thrillers as one of the most successful prosecuting attorneys in America, having convicted hundreds of violent criminals. This is one of the most intense and haunting of the popular series that includes Infamy, Tragic, and No Lesser Plea.  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
Tanenbaum--currently a candidate for Los Angeles D.A.--cooks up a shocking and credible addition to his N.Y.C.-based Butch Karp crime series. More than a million copies of Tanenbaum's books are in print, and his next, Reversible Error , will be a Dutton April release. Author tour. (Apr.)
Library Journal
This cynical, fast-moving novel, the third in the Butch Karp series, concerns the workings of the judicial system in the Big City. The neat plot combines Satanism, pedophilia, Mafiosi, good-looking cops, corrupt judges, sociopaths, a pregnant one-eyed assistant district attorney who roller skates, and a love story, into something special. Tanenbaum, coauthor of two nonfiction crime books as well as De praved Indifference ( LJ 7/89) and No Lesser Plea (Watts, 1987), is also a former assistant district attorney and chief of homicide. As timely as tomorrow's nightly news, but not for the squeamish.-- Lynn Thompson, Ozark Regional Lib., Ironton, Mo.

They're at it again! ADA Butch Karp and his beautiful colleague and love-interest, Marlene Campi, have each taken on separate cases that merge into one. Karp catches the case of a murdered mobster and Campi investigates the murder of a mutilated little girl who's body was found in a dumpster. As they each pursue their own case, they begin to uncover unspeakable horror and evil and a murky figure abused children call the "boogeyman." They are still the outrageously quirky couple they were in previous novels. Loyal readers expect them to act a bit like raving lunatics on occasion. That's all part of the ride the author creates.

I am going back and reading all the Butch Karp series in order. This story about The Bogeyman brought back memories. Butch and Marlene are great characters. Can't wait to read the next one.

I enjoy reading Tannenbaum's Butch Karp series. Lot's of humor, great dynamics between the returning characters. Guma is my favorite. However once these stories lead to the main characters getting kidnapped, beaten up, or some other uncommon event, I find myself thinking "here we go again".
