A Turkish Diplomat is killed in the open, NYPD officers think it's an open and shut case. DA Butch Karp thinks differently and sets out to find out the truth...If you like detective stories, I recommend you read this. But, I would start at the beginning of the series.
Another exciting adventure of Butch, Marlene and crew. As always, good to the very end.
During World War I, 1.5 million Armenians were annihilated by the Turks. Turkey has never acknowledged this genocide, and history lightly dances around it. Herein lies the premise of Justice Denied. The tale begins with the assassination of a Turkish diplomat-apparently committed by Armenian terrorists-and the prompt arrest of a suspect. Enter Butch Karp, assistant district attorney and head of the homicide bureau. Karp and wife Marlene, also an assistant D.A., make a most dynamic duo. Among the individual threads: she goes to a reception and receives a lecture on art theft; he discovers a million dollars in a safe deposit box; he gets a lesson on Eastern European history and the buying and selling of national treasures. These threads are tightly woven together into a highly satisfying tale ultimately related to the novel's opening events.
