Immoral Certainty

26 -- RKT -- cover IMMORAL CERTAINTYBook Three of the bestselling Butch Karp legal thriller series.  When a murder case and a child abuse case begin to merge into one horrendous picture, even Karp is shocked by the evil he uncovers.

Butch Karp’s career prosecuting New York’s worst criminals takes a chilling turn when a series of ghastly child murders opens a window into the city’s hellish underworld. Karp and his love-interest, extraordinary Marlene Ciampi, pursue a psychopath known to his young victims as the Bogeyman, but what Karp and Ciampi find is more threatening than a lone predator.

To stop the evil they discover will take more than just courage in the courtroom.  The two must follow a sinister trail into New York City’s darkest corners, where the law is powerless to protect them, and immoral certainty abounds.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Tanenbaum–currently a candidate for Los Angeles D.A.–cooks up a shocking and credible addition to his N.Y.C.-based Butch Karp crime series. More than a million copies of Tanenbaum’s books are in print, and it is little wonder!  Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Library Journal

This cynical, fast-moving novel, the third in the Butch Karp series, concerns the workings of the judicial system in the Big City. The neat plot combines Satanism, pedophilia, Mafiosi, good-looking cops, corrupt judges, sociopaths, a pregnant one-eyed assistant district attorney who roller skates, and a love story, into something special. Tanenbaum is also a former assistant district attorney and chief of homicide. As timely as tomorrow’s nightly news, but not for the squeamish. - Lynn Thompson, Ozark Regional Lib., Ironton, Mo.
