In this “electrifying page-turner” from the New York Times–bestselling author, a former NYC assistant DA goes up against the mayor—and a web of corruption (Kirkus Reviews).
New York’s chief medical examiner, Murray Selig is one of the best in the country. So it’s quite a shock when the mayor fires him without cause. Humiliated, Selig wants more than justice. He wants revenge—so he calls Butch Karp.
Once the city’s leading prosecutor, Karp left the District Attorney’s office to go into private practice, but he still knows his way around the halls of power. Selig’s case gives him a chance to stick it to his old boss, but as he digs into the truth of the medical examiner’s firing, he finds the heart of the city is more rotten than he ever realized. Meanwhile, Karp’s wife Marlene has opened a detective agency dedicated to protecting women. Her latest case leads her to a Lower East Side women’s shelter . . . and a shocking connection to Karp’s case.
Based on the author’s own experience as a New York prosecutor, Falsely Accused is a sizzling expose of the true nature of power by the New York Times–bestselling author of Infamy and Material Witness.
Falsely Accused is the 8th book in the Butch Karp and Marlene Ciampi series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Very well written, as usual for Tanenbaum. The relationships and dialog are sympathetic, believable and character true. The slight problem I have with some of his plots, and especially this one is the amazing coincidence that connects the three main character's plot lines.
