No sooner does he bask in the relief of successfully closing the case on murderous imam Sharif Jabbar than he is thrust into the center of a high-profile prosecution that threatens the integrity of his office. An ambitious young assistant district attorney, seeking career advancement, cuts corners to indict Acevedo, disregarding Karp’s fundamental rule: Never charge the accused unless the evidence leads inexorably to proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Now, damned by a coerced confession and a frenzied media bent on lynching him, Acevedo sits in jail while a vicious killer stalks the city.
Karp’s wife, Marlene Ciampi, one half of the “crime-fighting family” proclaimed by the media, hits the streets for clues that will save the unjustly accused defendant. What she discovers puts her on the trail of the true perpetrator - a drug-addicted psychopath with an ax to grind - and a disgruntled police detective who is willing to lie, withhold evidence, and kill to be labeled a hero. But it also puts her in the center of a dangerous race to be the last man standing and if she’s not careful, one of the other players will take the prize.
From the gruesome crime scene to a trial that will leave listeners on the edge of their seats, Robert K. Tanenbaum’s unstoppable novel unfolds at breakneck speed as Karp and Ciampi fight for justice in a dramatic and challenging case that will thrill listeners to the bone.

Tanenbaum has 'jumped the shark'
If you're not famililar with that term, then this review won't make sense. I have LOVED the Butch Karp series but the last two have just gone too far. I hope Tanenbam moves on to different characters and a new series. I won't buy any more of the ones with Karp. Too bad because I enjoyed his whole family. I am willing to suspend disbelief but throughout this one, I was glad it was only an 8 hour listen.

As good as ever!
Would you consider the audio edition of Outrage to be better than the print version?
I only do audible books these days. I started this series over because there were many of the first ones that weren't available in audible when I started it.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Butch Karp and the regular characters were as good as ever. It was shorter than most of his books, but I really enjoyed it anyway.
What three words best describe Mel Foster’s performance?
Not favorite reader.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, I listened to it every chance I got!
Any additional comments?
I prefer RIchard Ferrone as a reader for this series.
