4.0 out of 5 stars Croatian terrorists in NYC 30 Nov 1997
By David W. Nicholas - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Robert K. Tannenbaum (who I believe is or was Mayor of Beverly Hills) has produced a couple of these lawyer novels, with the main character, in contrast to Grisham et al, a prosecutor. Butch Karp (don't you love that name?) is a young ambitious Assistant DA in the NYC prosecutor's office, with the twist that things all take place when Tannenbaum was apparently there as a young man, in the mid-70's. This time he's trying to put Croatian Terrorists behind bars for killing a bomb squad cop. There are some amazing twists of the plot, and a few that stretch credulity or are rather sudden, but the whole thing is entertaining reading, if a bit long. It also has a rather anti-climactic ending that some might find offensive (a disabled person impersonates one of the main characters and disgraces him). If you can overlook these rather minor flaws, it's a good book.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2nd in the series, was he just warming up? 13 Aug 2004
By Silvaweb - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the 5th book I have read of the series. I am hooked on his books, but this one didn't hold my attention as well as the others. I think it was just to in depth with the CIA, FBI, Croats, ect. Still a good read, but not the best. I strongly urge people to read them all though. Just be sure to start at the begining with No Lesser Plea and work your way to Hoax. Following the Karp family from the start makes for a better read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kind of Muddled... 18 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my third Butch Karp novel - and I really like the series. However, I think this one was my least favorite. There are way too many characters (CIA, FBI, NYPD, The Catholic Church, the Mossad, Croats, Serbs, Nazis... get my point?) Also there were many plot points that are left undone. What happened to Leventhal? Why did Karavitch set the bomb or hijack the plane?
It just felt kind of unfocused. I won't give up on Tanenbaum yet, though. I'll definitely read a few more, and hope that he can redeem himself.
4.0 out of 5 stars Tanenbaums earlier books are better than his later ones 8 July 2014
By Lockeed - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Generally speaking Mr. Tanenbaums earlier books are better than his later ones, and that is because Michael Gruber wrote them, (author of "Tropic of Bones" and "Valley of Night" ) Mr. Gruber is listed in the acknowledgements as being of assistance. Thetruth is he wrote all of the earlier books, anyone who has read both sets of books will be able to tell this. I don't know why he stopped writing them, but the difference is obvious . The quality and pacing are so superior in the early books .
