Book Nine of the bestselling Butch Karp legal thriller series: Karp goes up against a formidable defense attorney in a case that threatens to divide the city against itself

Back as head of the district attorney’s homicide bureau, Butch Karp comes up against one of his most bizarre cases yet. A series of racially motivated murders in Harlem prove to be the work of a wealthy suburbanite out to relive a twisted episode from his childhood. The killer’s showboating defense attorney will stop at nothing to derail Karp’s prosecution—even if it means igniting a race war. But while Karp relentlessly pursues the guilty, his wife, Marlene, risks everything when standing up for victims of domestic abuse and crosses into vigilantism. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert K. Tanenbaum including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
