Publisher's Summary

Butch Karp has never shied away from a difficult case, and when Croatian terrorists hijack a plane and kill an NYPD bomb squad cop in a bomb blast, he’s eager to prosecute the high-profile killers. But Karp’s aggression puts him at risk when his investigations uncover messy government secrets. Certain elements of the FBI and CIA don't want the trial to go forward, and are willing to go to extremes to sabotage Karp’s case. Mired in local bureaucracy and international intrigue, only Karp’s dogged determination - along with the help of his crime-fighting partner and girlfriend, Marlene Ciampi - can once again deliver justice.

Enjoyable Series

This is great escapist writing. It isn't literature. It isn't a documentary (at least, I hope not). People do things and get away with things that would never match a real life story.

However, there are characters, some of whom are real "Characters!". There are some funny scenes, and some sad ones. There's humor, backstabbing, manipulation and loyalty. There's love, friendship and family.

Just dive in and enjoy some time away from reality. Have a little fun. Don't overanalyze the plot (there are a few weaknesses, but no glaring holes).

I'm off to read the next one now.

Traber Burns was very good with the delivery of the story

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"


This is a farce. Nope, not an indictment, a definition. Whoever wrote this book, and there's a bunch of controversy over that (Was it someone named Tanenbaum? Does anyone named Tanenbaum exist? Was it some guy named Michael Gruber? Does he exist? My head's going to explode... Go Google 'em and you decide.) But I digress...

Listen to "Depraved Indifference" as a slow-starting, over the top, jump the shark, broad and blue-humored FARCE! Do that and this book's fun. Oh, it's dirty as a 1970s Red Foxx at work in a smokey grownups' supper club... Adult stuff. And if you watch life through a PC filter... Don't... I'm warning ya'.... DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK! You will be sooooooo offended that you will become incontinent for weeks.

Me? I'll probably get the next book in this series :-}
