I've always been a fan of Tannenbaum's books, but this one is an exception. For Karp-Ciampi fans, it is sad to see how these favorite characters have become caricatures of their former selves. The lengthy past-perfect back-stories and annoying flash-back devices, along with the preposterous plot recycled from previous books make the story almost impossible to follow. If this is your introduction to Butch and Marlene, do yourself a favor and grab any of the earlier books. They're so much better.

For me, this was a book that I was unable to finish. Half-way thru, and there seems to be no connection from page to page, chapter to chapter.

This is a fast paced, action packed book. I really enjoyed the characters, which I had read in some of this authors previous books. I would highly recommend this book to other readers.

Big City justice strikes again in this Butch Karp saga, a rush for all who have ever lived in the Big City, and also a rush for those who have not. You never know what lives next door, or downstairs!!!

I am always on the lookout for the next Butch Karp novel. This one has more politics than I usually care for, but it was still a good read.

Tannenbaum again shows his talent for interweaving several plot lines and multiple characters into a complex and riveting thriller.

I started reading Tannenbaum's books with the first one, and have read them in sequence up to this one. In the last two or three, I've noticed a disappointing tendency for the plots to get less and less credible. I know this is fiction, but he seems to be "jumping the shark" as they say about a TV series which is on its last legs and starts to present more and more outlandish stunts in an attempt to attract a new audience. If you think you'd like to meet Butch Karp and Marlene Ciampi, try to find book 1 ("No Lesser Plea") and follow the saga from there; he has added lots of new characters over the years, and the two main protagonists have worked together, fallen in love, shacked up, got married, and started raising a family. Their oldest child is now in her late teens, so you can see where this has gone on for a while. My ratings of these books over the years have fallen from five stars to four stars, and lately to three. I still enjoy them, but less and less as the years roll by. I hope the author gets hold of himself eventually since I still have five or six I haven't read yet... Guess I'll stop buying new ones for a while.

In Brooklyn, a female jogger is brutally raped; the assailants are convicted and later exonerated by the Kings County DA. Now the guilty are filing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the city of New York, the police, and the two Brooklyn Assistant DAs who tried the case.

Another first-rate thriller for Butch Karp and his wife Marlene Ciampi fans, with their kids Lucy and the twins and other "regular" characters from the pen (typewriter?) of Robert K. Tanenbaum. Couldn't put it down and now I'm sorry I finished it. Paul C.

In Brooklyn, a female jogger is brutally raped; the assailants are convicted and later exonerated by the Kings County DA. Now the guilty are filing a multi million-dollar lawsuit against the city of New York, the police, and the two Brooklyn Assistant DAs who tried the case. Caught in the glare of the media-frenzy, Butch Karp may be blinded to the lethal maneuvering of a terrorist cell plotting to bring the city to its knees by striking Times Square on New Year's Eve. But the destruction begins far below ground, in the subway system - where Karp's family may become their first victims...
