Overview


Book Four of the bestselling Butch Karp legal thriller series: Karp, Marlene, and a few honest cops must stand up to a hive of corrupt politicians

Assistant District Attorney Butch Karp is finally recognized for his heroic service to New York City when a group of politicians back him for the top job as Manhattan’s district attorney. But a series of cases involving vigilante murders begins to reveal the true motives of those civil servants standing by his side. It’s Karp versus the dirty city in one of Tanenbaum’s most revealing and caustic legal thrillers— a stunning indictment of civil corruption and overreach. 

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert K. Tanenbaum including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

The legal thriller--nobody owns this turf like Robert Tanenbaum. Reversible Error is Tanenbaum at his meanest, sharpest, and deadliest. While a serial rapist is ravaging the women of the city, a ruthless killer is slaying the city's drug lords. Assistant D.A. Butch Karp and three renegade cops are bending the rules to find the culprits--who may just be wearing blue.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Manhattan Assistant D.A. Butch Karp and his colorful crew (Immoral Certainty, 1990, etc.) return for their fourth 70's-set end run against Gotham's worst—this engrossing time out, against a serial rapist and a murderous conspiracy reaching far into the halls of power. Once again, Tanenbaum, now a Beverly Hills councilman, draws deeply on his own past tenure in Karp's post, tracing with bedrock authenticity the A.D.A.'s internal conflicts as he is asked by a trusted top cop to cover up an investigation into a rash of drug- dealer killings (the work of a vigilante cop whose exposure will tear apart the NYPD?) and at the same time is wooed by a cabal of fat cats to run for the post of D.A. Expertly counterpointed to Karp's political tightroping is the suspenseful police street-hunt for the killer, focusing on a trio of Harlem-based cops whose extralegal tactics (including simulated torture) Tanenbaum describes with vibrant grit. And in a major subplot rife with 70's period detail and legalistic flourish, Karp's pregnant fianc‚e, Marlene Ciampi, goes after a smug serial rapist who graduates to murder. Then Karp learns that the cabal backing him for D.A. may be behind the killings, looking to score millions in drugs by eliminating their competition; the cops begin to fear that their own lieutenant is the killer—until he's kidnapped by the cabal; and Ciampi's case takes a bizarre turn as a corrupt judge springs the rapist. Can a series of Karp-engineered stings and a last- minute rescue attempt bring the scales of justice back into balance? You can smell the Big Apple starting to rot as Tanenbaum bores into its mealy core for another uncommonly intelligent legal/copentertainment.

    Fast paced easy reading.

    I am reading the Butch Karp series on the recommendation of my brother-in-law who read them years ago. I have not been disappointed. I'm enjoying the growth in the character development of Butch and Marlene. This story gets into the story of Harlem drug dealers and corrupt politicians. It moves along rapidly. This is the fifth of the 23 books in the series that I've read so far and I will continue with this series along with others I'm also enjoying.
