In the twenty-eighth installment of the New York Times bestselling Karp-Ciampi series, the “rock-solid” (Kirkus Reviews) prosecutor Butch Karp and his wife, Marlene Ciampi, must team up to solve the suspicious murder of an FBI informant and battle corruption at the highest levels of the United States government.Intrigue, murder, corruption, and dramatic courtroom battles combine to make Infamy another must-read in Robert K. Tanenbaum’s “tightly written” (Booklist) legal thrillers. Now, New York District Attorney Roger “Butch” Karp and his crime-fighting wife, Marlene, face long odds and imminent danger by not only seeking justice for a murdered FBI agent but also exposing and preventing a monumental betrayal of our nation’s security and integrity.When a former Army veteran suddenly murders three people in New York City before giving himself up, he exclaims that he had to do it because he was being used in mind control experiments. Surprisingly, a top Wall Street criminal defense lawyer, one with ties to the White House, decides to defend the killer, claiming that his client suffered from post-traumatic stress from his tours in Afghanistan and that it’s his patriotic duty to assist him.
As Karp prepares a murder case against the veteran, he meets with investigative reporter Ariadne Stupenagel, who suspects that one of her sources for a story on high-level government corruption was a victim in the shooting. This points not to a random act of violence, but a hired killing that goes to the top levels of our nation.
In this fast-paced thriller, Karp goes up against corruption so powerful that he, his family, and his friends are in danger if he intends to prosecute those responsible for the murder of an FBI whistle-blower. Filled with edge-of-your-seat action, stunning plot twists, and, “the best fictional prosecuting attorney in literature” (#1 New York Times bestselling author Mark Lane), Infamy will keep you guessing until the very end.
