Complicating matters further is Butch's wife, private investigator Marlene Ciampi, who has decided to return to law. On her first assignment, a case involving an equally unspeakable tragedy, Marlene has the unenviable task of taking on a politically ambitious local prosecutor who is pressing to charge a suburban teenager with capital murder.
With Butch and Marlene squaring off on opposite sides of a national debate, things couldn't get worse, until an astonishing turn of events puts their daughter at the center of a horrifying crime. Suddenly, everything they believe in is challenged, as they are drawn into a maelstrom of big city politics and small town values, where justice is sacrificed to the twin gods of public perception and expediency - and Karp must struggle to salvage his self-respect, his career, and his very life.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend the story to a friend because it makes one think. There are always more sides to life than most folks can see and in this book, Tanenbaum effectively presents at least two of them. It can also be read as a relaxing adventure if one prefers not to get caught up in the social message.
How could the performance have been better?
Two major errors in reading disrupted the flow of this story for me repeatedly. These were: 1) he's reading a legal thriller and doesn't take the time to learn the pronunciation of simple legal terms such as Ex Parte; 2) he's reading in Spanish-speaker voices and doesn't bother to learn the pronunciation of a main Spanish-surnamed character. Were he reading from the perspective of an English-speaker, I could overlook the mispronunciation as belonging to the character, but this was not the case.
I like the reader's voice tone and inflection, but just couldn't get past the mispronunciation.
