I love the Karp/Ciampi clan stories and of the numerous "hangers-on" that seem to surround them, Dirty Warren is my favorite . . . in this area, in this book, the author did not disappoint. I was never so happy to see the ending and the apparent dissolvement of the Sons of Man. The only thing that would've made me happier would be to see the end of David Grale and the Mole people. I would like ask Mr. Tanenbaum when he is going to continue the story he alluded to in a much earlier book, regarding Trahn and his connection to the death in Vietnam of Jojola's brother? I would like to see the "edge of your seat" courtroom thriller that I know this author is capable of, not the flimsy doomsday scenario with cartoonish side characters which does not interest me.

Broadway musical producer F. Lloyd Maplethorpe is counting on his reputation to keep him going as his last few shows have been flops. He hopes his latest venture will prove successful as he is arranging Putin: the Musical for the live theatre. One night he calls the concierge to come up to his apartment; Harry arrives only to see the body of a dead woman who had a part in the show. Lloyd tells Harry "I think I killed her". At his trial, Maplethorpe changes his tune stating she committed suicide; as happens frequently at celebrity trials, the jury is split. New York District Attorney Roger "Butch" Karp intends to prosecute the retrial. His private security specialist wife, Marlene Ciampi finds a frightened witness who she protects.-------------- Meanwhile the Sons of Man, a group with members in all levels of authority, are using the Muslims to create an incident that will surpass 9/11 in horror and death. They plan to make it seem Iran did the dastardly deed so that they can seize total power in a coup. The daughter of Ciampi and Karp, an agent for a top secret government group, Lucy is captured by the group's leader as she had begun to get to close to uncovering their devious scheme. Karp and Ciampi have to change direction as New York City is under internal Armageddon. ----------- Part legal thriller and part ant-terrorist conspiracy thriller, CAPTIVE is an exhilarating fast-paced, but over the top of the Empire State Building tale. Both subplots are fully developed so fans of the series will find each fun to follow. Butch is his usual confident self as he seeks justice in a courtroom while Maplethorpe lines up some powerful defenders. He is also a worried father as his daughter is snatched by his enemy and his wife in support roles has begun to help uncover a conspiracy that if achieved would sink the boroughs under the sea along with the government. Though way out and wild, fans will relish the latest Robert K. Tanenbaum's tense thriller.---------------- Harriet Klausner

I have read all of the Butch Karp novels and have greatly enjoyed the series. I only have one problem with these books. In every book the author spends the first 100 or so pages introducing all the characters. This is very annoying and boring. This is the 20th book in the series. No one starts a series of books on the 20th book. Either you are a fan of the series and have read all of them or you start with the first book. With that complaint out the way I can say that this book does a really good job of moving the saga if this unique family along. I just wish that Tanenbaum could manage to publish more than one book a year.

Much like another of his books, but still entertaining.

This is a nice continuation of the case of characters. The plot was OK but it was a bit of a slower read than previous books.

I always enjoy this series. The continuity is superb, but the adventures and twists keep the material fresh and exciting. I highly recommend the entire series. But this and all Tannenbaum's Butch Karp books can stand alone as a great read. The only down side? I would love to see Marlene kick some more a*@ !
