Robert K. Tanenbaum is a pro and the legal thriller is his domain. He has been penning solid thrillers for decades and now introduces his latest novel featuring NY District Attorney Roger "Butch" Karp, INFAMY.

INFAMY combines elements of the classic THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE with a top-notch courtroom drama. When a U.S. Army Colonel is killed in broad daylight in New York's Central Park an investigation by numerous agencies ensues. What is uncovered is the tip of a very treacherous iceberg that involves global intrigue, modern warfare, terrorism and mind control.

The shooter is another army veteran who was ordered to single out the Colonel as his target on behalf of an unknown source. The drama does not end with murder as the late Colonel's apartment is broken into by some dangerous men who are looking for something in the library. It turns out those men are former Black Ops who were dishonorably discharged and mean business.

Who is behind the murder and what does the term 'mirage' mean? This is beyond law enforcement and will need to be settled in the courtroom. D.A. Karp takes on the case and gets information from an investigative reporter, Ariadne Stupenagel, who was personally involved with the army vets involved in this case and was present at the shooting.

Levels of corruption that escalate far higher than could be expected is what Karp must face as this dynamic case busts wide open. Mind control is just one pawn in play as Karp uncovers a plot that has ties in the Middle East, Isis and Russia. Buckle-up for a lengthy and thrilling courtroom battle where Karp must stay one step ahead of an evil cartel that will stop at nothing and may threaten the lives of everyone he knows.

Tanenbaum shows why he has been enjoying best-seller status throughout his long career. INFAMY has a little of everything and simply calling it a legal thriller does not do justice to the handful of genres this story touches on. A solid and timely read!
