Summary
When a cop shoots down the son of a respected inner-city Baptist preacher, the community rises up in anger and demands to have the officer prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But there's something more than a call for justice at work here: a plot to bring down the city's police force through a conspiracy so vast and malicious only Butch Karp and his band of truth-seekers can untangle it. Now Karp and his wife Marlene Ciampi must stop a radical organization of armed militants bent on the cold-blooded murder of uniformed on-duty police officers

Review
In the prologue of bestseller Tanenbaum’s energetic 29th novel featuring New York County DA Butch Karp (after 2016’s Infamy), Karp holds a press conference outside Manhattan’s Criminal Courts Building. The large crowd is expecting him to announce whether Bryce Kim, an Asian policeman accused of fatally shooting black teenager Ricky Watts, is going to be indicted. When Karp announces that no decision will be made until the investigation is concluded, a gunman shoots him. Flash back to a month earlier: the murder of Tony Cippio, a white police officer, by a black shooter in Harlem is followed by the shooting death of Watts, the son of a popular Baptist minister. These actions elevate racial tensions throughout the city. Back in the present, only the investigative skills of Karp, who’s recovered from his gunshot wounds, and his wife, Marlene Ciampi, can bring the truth to light when Kim is brought to trial. Tanenbaum, himself a lawyer, writes with brio and brings the final, decisive courtroom scenes to satisfying life. Agent: Bob Diforio, D4EO Literary Agency. (Aug.)
