Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The shooting death of a rap mogul is the first link in a sinister chain ensnaring New York District Attorney Butch Karp. With his wife and daughter on a New Mexico retreat, Karp is left to fend for his teenaged sons and himself. Descending into the hip-hop underworld to prosecute a killer, Karp comes head-to-head wih Andrew Kane, a powerful would-be mayor whose corrupt web of influence leads Karp to unveil a shocking church sex-abuse scandal. In a world where secrets can be buried for an often-deadly price, Karp discovers there is no safe haven.

Synopsis:

New York District Attorney Butch Karp goes head-to-head with a crooked wannabe mayor, the rap underworld, and rogue churchmen in yet another pile-driving thriller in the "New York Times" bestselling series.

When a rap impresario is gunned down in New York City, it appears that gang-related violence has reared its ugly head once again. But nothing's as it seemsin this taut, virtuoso thriller from the pen of Robert K. Tanenbaum. In pulsating scenes, where evidence surfaces connecting rogue priests to murdered kids, and featuring enough sensational plot twists, heart-racing action, and brilliant crime solving to fill ten books, Karp attempts to untangle the web of violence and corruption that threatens both his career and the lives of his family.

These comments refer to the abridged audio version of this book.

Not a great introduction to Tanenbaum's noted series. Perhaps it was the abridgment, which took out nearly all opportunities for character enhancement and reader empathy. Or perhaps it was this narrator's voice, diction, and pacing; he added nothing in the way of emotion or drama. Because of the author's reputation, and the suggestion of several friends, I may try another in this series someday -- in print!

A thriller that delves into the wars of the hip-hop music scene. What's most interesting about the way this book is written is that when new characters are introduced (and there are some pretty wild ones), the story backtracks and narrates their whole life story--but because it's written as well as it is, it doesn't slow down the action.
