The fourth (I think) in this series, and the one in which Michael Gruber (the real author) begins to hit his stride. Several very complicated plots which turn out to be intertwined (characteristic of the later books). The beginnings of what will turn out to be Marlene Ciampi's future role championing women who are victims of their violent men. In later books she eventually will go into business providing security for these women, often solving their problems with, um, extreme prejudice. Legal an ...more

Wall Street and drugs and offshore money-laundering - quite the trip! And the great characters Butch Karp and Marlene Ciampi.

I am very much enjoying this series. The byplay between Butch and Marlene is really a kick.
This is the 4th book in the series so it was like settling in with some old friends. The story line was rather complicated and convoluted as one plot ran into another or not. The whole time I read it I wondered who was scamming who and who was really doing what they said there were so it was interesting to see how it would all pan out. I'm finding Butch and Marlene constant spats to be wearing a little thin. Time to put more space between the books in this series.
Another delectable bonbon in the Butch Karp - Marlene Ciampi series ghosted by Michael Gruber, my new fave, for his cousin RKT. While waiting for Gruber's next book in his own name I'm enjoying going through this series in order. This one is even better than the previous ones.
You know it's a good book when a mystery/crime novel also contains more than a few laugh out loud moments. I just love Tanenbaum's 'Butch Karp' series.

This is one of my favorite legal/police thriller series of all time. The earlier books have great plots, dialogue, and characters. The more recent books are not as good, but I love the series overall.

reading my way through this series, it's now the late 70s in NYC and the power couple is taking down the high and mighty backing drug czars to recoup their market losses.
Currently my go-to author for when I want that feeling of needing to know what comes next "stay up all night reading." Am reading my way through the series.

NOT A REVIEW. Hippo marked 8/94 with marginal notes. I don't remember a thing {9-18-2010}.

Dusk jacket raves from V. Bugliosi and J. Kellerman.
Judy Ward
Really enjoy enjoy Tanenbaums roller coaster rides in his stories. Great characters that you come to know and look out for. Lots of action.
As legal thrillers go, it was ok. I enjoyed reading it, but I won't be enthusiastically pressing it on all my friends and acquaintances.
Jim Meyer
left me somewhat flat...somehow not up to the usual...guess I'll just move onto the next one.
Typical for this series. Got a little confused with the plot but sorted it out in time.
Anne Brassell
Enjoyable read. I listened to the audio version.
A Cayouette
All Tanenbaum books are well worth reading.
