Overview

New York Times bestselling author Robert K. Tanenbaum’s electrifying thriller unfolds at breakneck speed as District Attorney Butch Karp battle s two enemies: a homicidal maniac and a fatal fail ure of the system.

Months after a brutal double homicide shocks the city, sensational newspaper headlines herald the arrest of Felix Acevedo, a shy Bronx teenager who confessed to the horrific crimes. But in the district attorney’s office, Butch Karp is seething. An ambitious young assistant DA cut corners to indict the kid. Now, damned by a coerced confession, Acevedo sits in jail while a vicious killer stalks the city. Karp’s wife, Marlene, hits the streets for clues and finds herself in the center of a dangerous race against a drug-addicted psychopath and a disgruntled police detective who will lie, withhold evidence, and kill to be the last man standing.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Tanenbaum wisely dials back the terrorism themes and wild excesses that have plagued recent entries in this long-running series (Betrayed, etc.) with this straightforward legal thriller. Mild-mannered, mentally challenged Felix Acevedo, who came to New York City from Puerto Rico with his parents as a boy, has been arrested for a double homicide—of a professor's wife and her mother—in the Columbia University Slasher case. Physical evidence points to Felix's involvement, and far worse, he has confessed to the horrific murders. The crimes were in fact committed by a Chechen immigrant who looks Hispanic, methamphetamine junkie Ahmed Kadyrov, but New York City D.A. Roger "Butch" Karp and his department don't know that and are set to prosecute Felix. When Felix's mother persuades Karp's attorney wife, Marlene Ciampi, her son is innocent, Marlene decides to investigate. The final pages of the trial reveal a clever trick that Tanenbaum has neatly played on the reader. (June)
From the Publisher
“ONE HELL OF A WRITER.” —New York Post

“Butch Karp is the best fictional prosecuting attorney in literature. . . . Tanenbaum is a phenomenal attorney and a remarkable storyteller: It is almost unfair to the rest of us. . . . Outrage grabs you at the outset and astonishes at each page . . . Riveting.”
—#1 New York Times bestselling author Mark Lane

    Robert K. Tannenbaum writes a strong brisk police procedural with legal thriller elements

    Last July, a serial killer murdered Olivia Yancy after raping and torturing her. This sexual sadistic predator also killed the victim's mother Beth Jenkins. Felix Avecedo is a bit slow and will say anything necessary to end any pressure he feels from others. Detective Brock picks up Bronx teen Felix for questioning in another case; the rape, torture and murder of Ms. Adkins.

    A teen assaulted by the Columbia University slasher identifies Felix as her attacker. Police officer Graziani hates working in the Bronx and wants to go back to his former Manhattan precinct, maneuvers Felix into confessing to the three killings. Felix's friend Alex and his mother Amelia talk to the New York District Attorney Butch Karp's wife Marlene Campi; they explain to her Felix's handicap. Marlene believes NYPD coerced Felix into his confession. This means the real culprit remains free pouncing on his next victim. Her spouse also thinks Felix is innocent even as the media howls for execution. Butch knows he cannot afford a mistake as his wife follows clues to a psychopath, inadvertently protected by a cop who will do anything even kill to be the city's hero.

    Robert K. Tannenbaum writes a strong brisk police procedural with legal thriller elements. Readers will know the truth about Felix and empathize with his psychotic fear of someone pressuring and shouting at him that cripples him in this case into confessing when he knows he is not the culprit. There are life lessons that add an extra layer of complexity to this deep serial killer whodunit.

    Not up to earlier books in the series

    I ordered this before I learned that it was not ghost written by Miccael Gruber. It was not at all comparable to earler books in theseies that were. It was a routine mix oftypical plotlines. It may just barely pass as a timewaster.
