Overview

Book Three of the bestselling Butch Karp legal thriller series: when a murder case and a child abuse case begin to merge into one, even Karp is shocked by the evil he uncovers.

Butch Karp’s career prosecuting New York’s worst criminals takes a chilling turn when a series of ghastly child murders opens a window into the city’s hellish underworld. Karp and love-interest Marlene Ciampi pursue a psychopath known to his young victims as the Bogeyman, but what they find is more threatening than a lone predator. To stop the evil they unearth will take more than just courage in the courtroom; the two will need to follow a sinister trail into New York City’s darkest corners, where the law is powerless to protect them. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert K. Tanenbaum including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

 

Assistant D.A. Butch Karp and his girlfriend and co-worker, Marlene Ciampi, fight through red tape and New York's darkest alleys hoping to solve the toughest case of their careers before it becomes the toughest test of their love. Former New York City Assistant D.A. Tanenbaum is now running for D.A. of Los Angeles.

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

    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.

    Kept me interested..........

    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.

    Immoral Certainty is great read

    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".
