5.0 out of 5 stars Back on form! 3 April 2005
By Alison Wunderlan - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Having eagerly devoured the previous Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi novels, I was disappointed with the last one, Corruption of Blood, which dealt with the Kennedy assassination. But luckily Falsely Accused is right back on track, with our heroes in New York again. Although Butch is working for a firm of civil lawyers and Marlene is striking out on a new and different career, their cases lead them to dealings with the DA's department and the infamous DA himself, Sandy Bloom. Will Karp get revenge at last for Bloom's treatment of himself and Marlene?

The plot develops satisfyingly, with Karp's and Marlene's separate cases meshing, as they so often do, to enable a joint (if not wholly plausible) resolution. But hey, who's counting!

It's not just the plotting which I find so enchanting about these books. The characterisation is fine, with the good guys being reassuringly flawed - even the rather goody-goody Butch is rounding out as the series develops. Lucy is perhaps less well-drawn, being by turns baby-ish for a 7-year old and then stunningly precocious.

Most of all, I enjoy the style, the quality of the writing itself. Tanenbaum has a great ear for dialogue, for the way people switch topics in mid-conversation; his characters talk like real people, only more amusingly. Altogether, he has a delightful way with words, being at times wry, whimsical and ironic. I find myself jotting down some of his wittier phrases to use, er, spontaneously myself in conversation... Sincerest form of flattery, and all that!

I'm glad I've read the series in order, and if someone was thinking of starting with this book I'd recommend them to go back to the beginning. Maybe skip out Corruption of Blood unless you're really keen to read more Kennedy assassination theories - and enjoy Falsely Accused, which finds Tanenbaum once more at the height of his powers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kirkus - electrifying page turner ... 4 Sept. 1997

Kirkus Reviews: "blistering novel electrifying page turner"
Butch Karp has left the Manhattan D.A's office, but not the legal hot-seat, as this blistering novel of endless Big Apple corruption and coverups makes abundantly clear.Butch's client - a client he takes on over the howls of his firm's colleagues, who prefer to hold their star litigator over the heads of their own handpicked enemies - is ex-Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Murray Selig, tossed out of office on trumped-up charges so risible that the Mayor and D.A. Sanford Bloom have to have somehting else in mid - something pretty dire. While Karp is gathering the ammunition to destroy the D.A.'s defense witnesses, his wife, Marlene Ciampi, also on the lam from the D.A.'s office, is fighting off her pushy friend, high-flying reporter Ariadne Shipenagel - busy working on a story of the shakedown of three New York cabbies who fortuitiously died in police custody - long enough to set up her own agency serving women who need help enforcing protective legal orders against strangers or sadists or former lovewrs who are stalking them. Ciampi's highly effective vigilante tactics - heaven help the stalker she gets her teeth into - give Tanebaum's a shot of welcome humor to counterbalance Ciampi's involvement with Isabelle and Hector, a pair of wary regugee kids somebody has dumped at tough Mattie Dusan's Women's Shelter. Amazingly, Tanenbaum manages to pull all four cases together - Selig's civil suit against the Mayor and the D.A., Stupenagel's investigation of the police shaekdown, Ciampi's anti-stalking campaign and the sorry tale of Isabella an Hector - and even finds a surprising new role for Karp and Ciampi's precocious seven-year old daugther Lucy.After tossing Karp into the treacherous deeps of the Kennedy assassination (CORRUPTION OF BLOOD, 1995) Tanenbaum proves that his meticulous homework on questions of legal procedure and the best Chinese restaurant for an off-the-record conversation can turn the most preposterous conspiracy of his own into an electrifying page-turner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well done, But....... 4 Oct. 2006
By Samuel Levin - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the best books in the Kaep/Ciampi series. The writer stays with two major scenarios and is able to skillfully intertwine numerous others that add to a well told story. The book has the tedency to drag slightly, although thses instances are few and far between. Perhaps the greatest area of weakness comes in the inability of the writer to develop characters that are realistic. Although he draws upon his legal knowledge to create a Karp who is believable, the same cannot be said about Ciampi who appears to be a cardboard cutoutof a character. In spite of these flaws, the book moves along at agood pace with some twists that are of interest, even if they are somewhat predictable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Publisher's Weekly Review - Tanenbaum's talent is large .... 4 Sept. 1997
By - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Followers of Tanenbaum's intelligent 1970/80's-set series (Corruption of Blood etc.) featuring married lawyers, Butch Karp and Marlene Ciampi will find that the author's punchy style perfectly suits his latest three-ring crime spectacle. Tanenbaum's talent is large, and so are his characters. These assets, along with a shot of genuine compassion for the troubles of children, enable him to just pull this one off. If readers won't quite believe the shockingly unconventional resulution, they'll still be affected by it, leaving them eager to know where this heroic family of crimefighters goes from here
