The Karp family is back at it in Malice, bestselling author Robert K. Tanenbaum's most suspenseful book yet in the Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi series. New York District Attorney Butch Karp, recovering from an assassination attempt that came within a few millimeters of killing him, takes on a shadowy cartel that uses terrorists to further its criminal empire while sliding the United States toward a fascist state that the cartel controls. As Karp struggles to uncover those responsible for planning the terrorist murders of six school- children, he goes to the aid of the younger brother of his college roommate, who has been unfairly suspended from his position as baseball coach at a university in Idaho. Meanwhile, Marlene Ciampi is in Idaho to help her husband with the investigation, and she befriends a Basque sheepherder who is demanding answers to the disappearance of his daughter -- a pretty college coed he suspects is having an affair with the school's president -- which may be related to Karp's case. And if that wasn't enough, the couple's daughter, Lucy, and her eclectic group of accomplices must uncover a traitor's plot and stop an assassination attempt surreptitiously planned to occur in the heart of Manhattan. Malice is filled with twists and story lines torn from today's headlines, and once again delivers Tanenbaum's one-of-a-kind courtroom scenes that, by the exciting climax, have been woven into a single, brilliant tapestry of action and suspense.

From the author of the top-rated David Brunelle Legal Thriller Series... Talon Winter was one of the most feared civil litigators in the Pacific Northwest-until she was wrongfully terminated by her high-priced law firm for refusing to follow an unethical order. Forced to reinvent herself, Talon recalls the one time she truly enjoyed being a lawyer-defending a fellow tribal member accused of murder-and decides to strike out on her own as a criminal defense attorney. She's also going to sue the pants off her old firm. But balancing her personal lawsuit with a fledgling law practice proves more difficult that Talon imagined. She has no choice but to take on the first client who walks in her door: Michael Jameson, a successful, forty-something, African American husband and father-who's just been charged with a 25-year-old cold case murder, a gang-related drug deal gone horribly wrong. The one question Talon needs answered is the one question Michael refuses to answer: Did he do it? Michael insists it doesn't matter. He's not the same person he was twenty-five years ago. He's built a new life in the intervening years, and nothing that happens now will bring the victim back. Instead, he poses a far more provocative question: Would the legal system reach back that far to take away everything built up by a successful White man? Talon must simultaneously battle her old law firm, a condescending prosecutor, reluctant witnesses, and even her own client to achieve that most elusive of goals: Justice.
