Publisher Comments:

Tanenbaum's last novel, "Fury," ended with a breathtaking cliff-hanger. Now readers can enjoy the exciting conclusion — bursting with more suspenseful twists — in his latest, "Counterplay."

When betrayal results in the cold-blooded murder of a busload of schoolchildren to accomplish the escape from custody of vicious sociopath Andrew Kane, New York District Attorney Butch Karp finds himself embroiled in a raging quest for vengeance that could cost him, his family, and thousands of others their lives. With an intensive manhunt ongoing for the fugitive Kane, Karp and long-time colleague Ray Guma open a cold case and pursue murder charges against wealthy Manhattan power broker/banker Emil Stavros, whose socialite wife disappeared nearly fifteen years earlier.

Meanwhile, Karp's wife, Marlene Ciampi, has let her fascination with her husband's lesser-known family comprised of Russian gangsters pull her into a dangerous world of Islamic terrorists, Chechen rebels, and Russian agents engaged in nefarious events straight out of today's real-world headlines.

Yet again, Robert K. Tanenbaum writes a masterful thriller involving the most memorable — and "un-put-downable" — stories of corruption and courtroom confrontations. "Counterplay," the latest book in the bestselling Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi series, proves to be another full-bodied, riveting page-turner with yet another cliff-hanger not soon to be forgotten.

Synopsis:

Picking up right where "Fury" left off, Tanenbaum's newest thriller hits the ground running as corrupt, would-be mayor Andrew Kane escapes from prison. Kane has designs on killing Butch Karp and his family. What the Karps don't know is Kane's strategy--to join forces with a terrorist group and organize a major attack in New York City.
